Letter: There’s a thin line to Chris Brown mockery
Re: ‘Chris Brown’s felonious weekend’ (Metro, Oct. 28)
Hey y’all, when I see the Metro reporting on what a douche Chris Brown is, I feel glad that at least one media outlet is also holding him accountable for his abusive, violent and controlling behaviors.
However, if in the same article, I also see the phrase “go all Chris Brown” and blase references to Rhianna’s injuries, I remember that we live in a society that makes light of partner abuse. If we make fun, how will our friends and loved ones know we can be trusted with their struggle?
Furthermore, how will abusers know they’ve done wrong? Partner abuse is. not. funny.
