Out of all the things to complain about in Rihanna’s latest video and all the people to complain about it, a group of anti-rape activists have decided to call Rih Rih out about the “We Found Love” clip.
If you’re trying to remember a rape scene in the video, you won’t. That’s not why they’re mad.
Rihanna is being targeted by anti-rape campaigners over concerns that she is objectified by her co-star and rumored boyfriend Dudley O’Shaughnessy in the video. Eileen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Center in the U.K. told Britain’s Daily Star, “Rihanna’s new video is a disgrace. It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases.”
Yeah, they might be trying a little too hard on that one. Had they maybe said how she’s making doing drugs with a boy seem cool and tied that back to some statistics about the amount of date rape that happens when girls are under the influence, then maybe we would see where they’re coming from.
She hasn’t really responded to that criticism yet, but Rihanna did issue a statement about the rumor of her dropping $1500 to get freaky in Paris as only Rih Rih can…
