Daily Beast editor Tina Brown called Rihanna “a big fat zero as a role model for girls” on twitter today because the singer stood in court next to Chris Brown’s mother as her boyfriend awaited to hear if the judge approved the community service he had to fulfill for brutally assaulting her in 2009.
Brown was asked to repeat the 180 days of service that he claimed he completed over the past few years.
To be fair, Rihanna never really said she was trying be a role model for anybody.
Though it is quite disgraceful that she is still with Brown after all he did to her. Ever since it became known that Rihanna had indeed taken the woman-beater back as her boyfriend, she lost a great deal of fans and respect because anyone stupid enough to continue dating someone who beat them up once is, well, stupid.
Looks like the way Rihanna sees it, she doesn’t want to be criticized for anything she does besides singing and performing. If only it were that simple.
