Chris Brown on Saturday Night Live tonight sends a big message to American women! The producers of SNL are telling us that beating a woman is no big deal and that abuse is even COOL. Way to go Lorne Michaels! Thanks for sending the message to my two teenage daughters that guys who beat the crap out of their girlfriends are cool.
Chris Brown was convicted of beating the holy crap out of Rihanna. There is still a RESTRAINING ORDER on Chris Brown, to keep him away from the singer. This is a guy who beat a woman he “loved” enough brute force to potentially “result in death and great bodily injury”! Just two years later, this man is being honored on Saturday Night Live, which sets the standard for what’s popular in our media driven culture? Why is there not more outrage over Brown’s appearance on SNL?
Chris Brown may be a talented artist but he’s a convicted abuser of women—with a court-order restraining order in place—and Saturday Night Live is featuring him as a guest star? Really? Did Lorne Michaels READ the police report from the night Brown beat Rihanna?
According to the LAPD police report,which was published on TheSmokingGun:
“Brown sought to push Rihanna out of his rented Lamborghini during an argument, and banged her head against the car’s passenger window. He then allegedly punched her repeatedly and warned, ‘I’m going to beat the shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!’”
“Bloodied, Rihanna reportedly then called her assistant Jennifer Rosales and left a message asking the aide to call police. Brown responded, the affidavit notes, by saying, ‘You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!’”
Go to the SmokingGun website if you can stomach reading the entire police report. The guy in the police report is being honored on TV tonight.
Why isn’t anyone protesting or even bothered by Chris Brown being featured on Saturday Night Live?
