Anti-Rape Group Attacks Rihanna Over “We Found Love” Video

    Rihanna has been targeted by anti-rape campaigners over concerns she is portrayed as “an object to be possessed by men” in her controversial new “We Found Love” music video.
Rihanna’s gritty promo sees the R&B star fight with her lover in a scene echoing her notorious 2009 bust-up with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
     In the clip, Rihanna’s rumored real-life beau Dudley O’Shaughnessy spanks her and tattoos the word “mine” on her backside.
An anti-rape group in Britain is fuming over Rihanna’s latest release, branding the video a “disgrace” and questioning the message it sends to impressionable fans.
Eileen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Centre tells Britain’s Daily Star, “Rihanna’s new video is a disgrace. It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases.”
However, the director of the video, Melina Matsoukas, defended her work, saying:
“In the end, it’s not really at all about domestic violence. It’s really just about it being toxic… It’s not trying to glorify that type of relationship. The bad parts of it, that’s what you don’t want. In the end, her leaving, it represents her getting that out of her life.”
