Rihanna is catching a lot of heat over the graphic video for her latest single, “Man Down.” In the video, the pop star shoots a man who raped her and the US Parents Television Council (PTC) is not pleased with the depiction of violence.
According to TMZ, the PTC said the video showed a “cold, calculated execution of murder” and it’s “outraged that Rihanna would suggest that gunning down a rapist in a crowded train station is a proper form of justice.”
Rihanna took to Twitter to respond to the PTC’s criticism. She tweeted, “The music industry isn’t exactly Parents R Us! We have the freedom to make art, LET US! Its your job to make sure they don’t turn out like US.”
She also tweeted, “…U can’t hide your kids from society, or they’ll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!”
