It seems like we have been inundated with horrible stories as of late of celebrity men putting their hands on women. We saw Vado attack Tahiry on Marriage Boot Camp and we heard the allegations of Tory Lanez shooting Megan Thee Stallion. We’ve all seen the impacts of these attacks and it’s all a reflection of society.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
“On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, etc.”
Celebrities are no different from the general public but unfortunately for them, their lives, hardships and struggles are often publicized and broadcasted for the world to see. However, one question that we should truly observe is that when it comes to our beloved male stars who are accused of obscene criminal actions, at what point do we begin to hold them accountable for their behavior outside of the music and fame? There have been so many instances where male celebrities have been easily absolved of their abusive antics. What do we need to do for this to change?
