What She Said.
YMY Contributor Samhita Mukhopadhyay on the leaked Rihanna photos from right after she was allegedly beaten by Chris Brown:
What is unfortunate is that it took a picture that violated Rihanna’s rights for the greater public to believe the perpetrator should be locked up. It is a sad world that we live in, when a woman is not taken at face value. And then her body must be consumed for the world to see in order to believe her story. The message is clear, women and especially black women, have no right to privacy, their image is for our consumption and story-telling.
