Chris Brown & Rihanna Strike a Chord with Students

Reading through my students’ posts this week, I noticed that several picked up the Chris Brown/Rihanna story that I included in last week’s linky love to write about.

This is an interesting topic with lots of angles – not the least of which is that it’s raising awareness about domestic violence among an audience that probably doesn’t think about it as often as they should.

Chris Brown: Quick Dance Moves, Slow Response Time
from Maddy Hicks focuses on Brown’s lack of response for too many days following the allegations.

What’s Love Got to do With it?: Chris Brown and Rihanna Edition from Josh Damis focuses on the implications to each star’s career.

Rihanna: Navigating a Crisis from Ali Runyan talks about Rihanna’s response and likely effect on her career.

Dude, Where’s my PR? from Krista Berlincourt asks why the stars took so long to respond and offers some advice.

I’m sure they’d each love to hear what you think, too.

    Hi Kelli,
    Thanks for posting the Chris Brown/Rihanna related blog posts from class. This story has definitely taken center stage in the media. I just read that TMZ has released the first photo of Rihanna from the night of her assault. I think once people see the picture of the bruised and injured Rihanna, the reality of the situation will hit. If the story wasn’t enough to promote awareness about domestic violence, this picture certainly will. Thanks for the blog shout-out!

    Both of them have a chance to save an entire generation. IF they stood up, took responsibility for the face that they both clearly need help, they could set kids free from abuse like this.

    It’s sad that none of this is happening, They could be leaders in a platform against domestic violence. We will see what happens.
