“Saw Man Down by Rihanna,” she tweeted. “Every victim/survivor of rape is unique, including how they THINK they’d like justice to be handed out. During my rape, I tried to shoot my rapist, but I missed.”
“Over the years I realized that killing my rapist would’ve added insult to injury. The DESIRE to kill someone who abused/raped you is understandable, but unless it’s self defense in the moment to save your life, [it] just ADDS to your troubles,” Gabrielle continued.
Gabrielle does make a good point about the difference between self-defense and planning revenge. As she later suggested, perhaps the murder in the video was really Rihanna daydreaming about seeking revenge on her attacker. What do you think?
