Why does everyone only focus on Chris Brown beating Rihanna? What about when Floyd Maywether beats women? He's actually been arrested a few times and convicted and has served some jail time for it. But you guy's don't really care about men beating women, you only care about being able to make a tired out joke. Also if you ************* are so concerned about equal rights for women and no special treatment then you shouldn't give a damn about whether or not Chris Brown beat a women, just that he beat someone. ******* hypocrites.

"you only care about being able to make a tired out joke."

well, this is FunnyJunk after all.

We don't come here to complain about injustice, we come here to laugh at people and make tired out joke.

I'll write this one comment becauseI can't be assed to argue with you, if you don't understand.

This is the internet. It's populated mainly by normal people, and, heres the things, normal people are damned stupid. That's why bandwagons like the chris brown hatings occur. Sure, it might be justifiable but people only really hate him because it's expected to hate him.

With more specific regards to your comment, whoever you talked about isn't as known as Chris Brown, he doesn't have as many immediately available stupid statements as Chris Brown and you generally don't seem to have a clue as to why it is Chris Brown and not that Floyd guy.

If people know a person, it's much more likely for him to be a placeholder of something, in this peticular case, he's a guy beating girls. That he appears to be your stereotypical pop music ****** is just an added incentive towards this.

TL;DR: It is Chris Brown and not Floyd because people know him and his actions, while Floyd has gone under the radar. This is a pretty common thing and has numerous theories attached to it.

Just in case you don't know Floyd Maywether is a boxer and is one of, if not the, highest paid athletes in the world.

Most people don't keep up with boxing. Basically everyone knows who Chris Brown is.

I don't keep up with boxing but I know who Floyd Maywether is.

No, this gets extra attention because the woman he beat was as famous as him. Those other cases of domestic abuse don't get as much attention because the victims weren't famous.

The fans/audience doesn't have a personality or a face to empathize with, an entity of which they previously recognized and admired. Comprehend the pain of a faceless person is much more challenging than with someone who've you "met". I'm not excusing these contrasting attitudes, to the contrary it completely sickens me, I'm only explaining the phenomenon you described.

Yea I guess that could be the reason they might not care about other cases of domestic abuse committed by a celebrity, but that doesn't explain the equal rights thing. I appreciate the input though.

I'm sorry to say.. but i don't think many of the people who do the stuff your complaining about are really going to care. Just trying to be honest.. i care though. if that counts

I care that you care. And I also kind of expect them to not really care, but you never know, someone just might change their mind.
