Did the show take it too far?
Law & Order Episode Mirrors Chris Brown And Rihanna Relationship
Last night, NBC aired an episode of the popular television drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” with a story line that was all but identical to the real life rollercoaster relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown. In case you missed it, here’s a brief synopisis:

The episode awkwardly began with a caption on the screen telling us it was not based on anyone in real life. We see a young singer named Misha performing a duet with Caleb Bryant — interesting initials “CB” — showing that they are really in love with each other.
Then, two seconds after kissing on Misha, Caleb moves onto a background singer that looks exactly like Karrueche Tran. Misha obviously sees what is going on, but instead of handling it like a man, Caleb beats her up in front of a handful of people
Caleb is a big jerk when he gets arrested for the beating that has now been blasted all over a popular gossip website. What’s also interesting is that when this happens, they actually have the words “Chris Brown & Rihanna” on screen. Comparing this beating to the one of Chris and RiRi were involved in is art imitating life.
A few other events happen that mirror the wild child lifestyles of Breezy and Rih-Rih, but things a take a slightly different and significantly more tragic turn as episode comes to a close.
Hit the flip to hear exactly how the episode ended and see whether or not the show took it too far.
Towards the end of the story, “Misha” finally opens up and tells the police (most of) what really happened on the night of her bea tdown:

Misha claims it all started when she found a text on Caleb’s phone in a club from another girl. That was the first beating, which was actually very similar to Chris and Rihanna’s infamous moment in 2009 when he beat her after arguing over a text!
Caleb goes back to court but Misha doesn’t tell the truth on all the incidents which gets the case thrown out, and the cops are understandably very upset. The police suggest that the next thing that will happen is that Caleb will kill her — and they’re right! Caleb and Misha go to Bermuda on a private yacht, and when she angers him after another text, he kills her.
Daaayyyyyum. Kind of a creepy ending, right? So now that you’ve heard how things played out on the episode, do you think they took it too far?
