I’ve been seeing posts all over the internet for the past few days asking “Why does Chris Brown receive so much hate, when other known celebrity domestic abusers (Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, John Lennon, etc.) were forgiven?”
And I would just like to take this time to remind the internet that Rihanna’s injurys were plastered all over the internet. Pretty much the entire country saw what he did to her, and then proceeded to watch as he acted like a little bitch anytime anyone so much as mentioned the incident to him.
Should other celebrities have gotten off so easily? Absolutely not.
But the people who are asking why Chris Brown is getting more hate than anyone else are severely underestimating the power of photography.
