We know why.
Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.
Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.
Ringo too I’m pretty sure
Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend
I could go on.
The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them. The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it. So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.
Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage.
If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.
I don’t think there’s enough outrage when men of any race hits a woman. and I’m not about to play the race card when it comes to men beating women. You beat a woman you deserve what you get.
That being said Ray Rice and Chris Brown are not the face of domestic violence. They are just the most recent assholes to commit it. We wouldn’t be talking about Ray Rice right now if that video of him punching his girlfriend didn’t come out, and the piss poor way the NFL handled the whole thing. With Chris Brown he keeps being in the news because he keeps doing bad things. Since he’s been out of jail he’s stayed out of trouble and I hope he continues on that path.
