I’m sorry but I’m not trying to defend what Chris Brown did to Rihanna, but it is a deeper issue than just him being a man. Domestic abuse has become quite popular in young adults these days. Part of the reason for this behavior stems from actions shown through their parents. Rihanna and Chris have both admitted to witnesses abuse in the home from their parents. I don’t think neither one of them set in their mind to be a victim of abuse or become an abuser while entering adulthood. This is a cycle that started years ago, but just recently became more recognizable. However, when it comes to age a child who participates in things before their minds are fully dev3eloped will find themselves in situations they are not ready for, or yet able to handle. Meaning, when you are young and in love the way you express your emotions are a reflection of the examples shown.
