      Not when he has demonstrated a ongoing pattern of behaviour, no.

      While people might have a point about Chris Brown, I’m not sure how great Rihanna feels about having this picture pulled out every time.

        the idea of Ri Ri sitting at home in her jocks, reading BS like the rest of us, is sweet

          Well, it was tweeted first and continues to be and is a meme for some people.

      Nope. not when he gets a tattoo of a battered woman on his neck and has shown no remorse and actually seems to think the whole thing is a badge of honour. absolute scumbag.

    I don’t often lol in real life but I did when I saw Frankie Boyle’s response to Chris Brown’s tweet that break dancing should be an Olympic Sport –

    “How’s about inter-gender boxing, you’re in with a shot then mate!”

      Not a fan of his comedy but his twitter holds some real gems. Also, his column in the Guardian is pretty bang on.

    Has he done it again? I thought they made up and he did some therapy after this happened the first time? I’m shocked he’s gone and done it again! Thought the therapy and his remorse were genuine. What a low life to pretend he’d repented.

            Shhssss.You’re not allowed laugh…or our Harold will think you’re privileged and disgusting.

            Ha :-) You’re no craic Annie, if you were in a different mood you’d have given someone else hard time for your comment.
            I was only taking the pee, I’m all for battering the wife.

          Yeah but nobody’s talking about his stellar performances at right back for Leicester.

      For balance……

      Or Emma Roberts, Carmen Electra, Whitney Houston (that went both ways), Brenda Harvey (Lionel Ritchie’s wife), Hillary Clinton, Stephen Hawking’s second wife, Christian Slater’s wife…. and it goes on and on, there are plenty, from either gender.

      1. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

        Perhaps but female celebrities don’t tend to get lionised and forgiven (i.e. blame her) in the same way as male celebrities.

        1. Clampers Outside!

          In some instances ‘celebs’ get that treatment, but it is, with regard to the “lionising”, pretty much a 50:50 split…. I believe. And again, I mean that with regard to ‘celebs’.

          Plenty of “you go girl” when she’s at it, and tends to be but “he’d had a few / was under terrible stress” when he’s at it. That is, the woman is encouraged, the man given an excuse.

          Neither is acceptable, both have the same or similar outcome, from what I see.

            “Plenty of “you go girl” when she’s at it”

            People know it is wrong no matter.

            I am not sure your examples are valid. Emma Roberts fair enough. But I suspect that for most of these it was a two way street with toxic relationships and people unable to handle themselves. I doubt the validity of the claim against Hillary Clinton tbh. Lots of nonsense spread about her because people simply hate her. No evidence for Stephen Hawking. Brenda Harvey beat up Lionel because she found in him bed with another woman. Christian Slater’s wife threw a glass at him. None of that is right but then neither suggest a pattern of sustained abuse.

            Domestic violence and the treatment of men is still evolving but there have been great strides in recognition for victims of both genders. Yes, the outcomes are terrible for any victim but you cannot ignore that for women, the outcomes are worse.

          2. Clampers Outside!

            ” ….because she found in him bed with another woman.” Did you just make an excuse for domestic abuse?

            Dodgy territory…. very dodgy. Is cheating an acceptable excuse for using fists now…. I’d doubt that’s what you meant. A slip of the tongue / keyboard I’m sure.

            I know you didn’t mean it Don, but it’s that flow of the tongue, representative heuristics, habitual thinking…. that is also a big issue men face more than women on this matter.

            Please note I am in no way trying to say men get it worse than women which is common accusation when men speak up.
            I think we are largely in agreement it’s all bad Don :)
            This is bit is a response to the “just like women can” comment below from Ethereal….

            “Campaign group Parity claims assaults by wives and girlfriends are often ignored by police and media”

            i already know(or believe) male victims of domestic assault are not taken as seriously which I think is outrageous. the article does not in any way disprove what I said…maybe you linked the wrong one?

          4. ethereal

            nvm…i think i misunderstood your point

            i fully believe men and women who are victims of domestic violence should have equal protection and it’s rotten that they don’t

          5. Dόn 'The Unstoppable Force' Pídgéόní

            Of course I’m not making an excuse, don’t be a tit.

            Yes there are issues with male victims. There is also a huge issue with LGBT domestic violence. BUT, power dynamics, money, children, gender etc mean it will continue to be worse for women. 1 woman a week is killed by her partner in the UK, some of these from police not taking it seriously enough or a “lack of evidence”. It is outrageous.

        Wow… wow! Hillary Clinton?! Love it. 10er says the first thing she does in the Oval office is an intern.

        “I told you I’d get you back you fupping b**tard!!”

    2. pedeyw

      Imagine is an awful song. People keep saying its amazing but it’s not. It’s terrible.

    True equality will be when a man is able to hit a woman back after she hits him first but only after she hits him first. And yes, violence against women is wrong, but so is violence against men, by men or women.

    1. ethereal

      hmm no that is not equality. men can bring charges of assault against women just like women can against men

  4. Owen

    I would not know who Chris Brown was if he had not beat up Rihanna. How many are the same? He is a scumbag rapper which appeals to me on zero levels. He is lower then ‘sex tape’ celebs, because his sex tape is actually beating up his girlfriend and being proud of it.
