Gabrielle Union relates to Rihanna’s “Man Down” video
HollywoodNews.com: Rihanna’s “Man Down” music video has gotten some heat over the storyline where her character shoots and kills a man who sexually assaulted her, but Gabrielle Union is stepping in to explain how it is for someone who has been there.
Union opened up over Twitter about having tried to shoot the man who raped her when she was 19 years old, states TMZ. “Saw ‘Man Down’ by @rihanna. Every victim/survivor of rape is unique, including how they THINK they’d like justice 2 be handed out,” Union commented.
After revealing that she tried to shoot her rapist when he put his gun down, but missed, she added, “Over the yrs I realized tht killin my rapist would’ve added insult 2 injury.”
However, Union is hoping that killing isn’t the way people go about justice: “The DESIRE 2 kill someone whose abused/raped u is understandable, bt unless its self defense n the moment 2 save ur life, just ADDS 2 ur troubles #mandown.”
