Rihanna Has Pissed Off The Parents…Again

From the mind of Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Tube, Rihanna | Posted on 06-01-2011

The excessive Jamaican-style yodeling in Rihanna’s new “Man Down” video isn’t the only thing rubbing people the wrong way (I kid, I kid?). The Parents Television Council is pissed about what they call the “cold, calculated execution of murder” in the video.

Here’s the vid if you didn’t catch our FB post yesterday (watch it before the Vevo police yank it):

The Council is mad at errrrybody: Rihanna, her Twitter and BET. They’re pissed that Rihanna would suggest murdering her character’s rapist in a crowded train station as a form of vigilante justice. The Council says: “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass.” The Council is also outraged over this tweet, suggesting the video is empowering to girls.

The Council’s spokesperson says Rih missed an opportunity to use her personal story and celeb status to send a message to victims of rape, “instead of telling victims they should seek help, Rihanna released a music video that gives retaliation in the form of premeditated murder the imprimatur of acceptability.” Truthfully, she missed that boat long ago when she could have become a real advocate for women after “the incident,” but instead she chose to promote an album. #shrug

Lastly, the Council is also PO’d with BET for debuting the video.

At first glance, I thought “damn, this girl loves a violent angle to her videos” and kept it movin’… Honestly, I didn’t think any more of it. I didn’t really think of it as speaking out against a culture of rape – maybe because, even though I like some of her music, I don’t really expect a “message” from Rihanna. So, what say you? Is this video just another “acceptable” expression of Rihanna’s dark side, a real stance against rape or is it really as serious as The Parents Television Council is making it? Should this young woman even be a role model to your kids?

Discuss it in the box…
