Parents Group on Man Down Video: ‘Rihanna Should Not Get A Pass’

We guess Anthony Mandler, the director for Rihanna’s new music video “Man Down,” should have added “outraged” to his description of the clip when he dubbed it “dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening.”

After premiering the video on BET last night, Rihanna is now taking heat from a Parents Advocacy Group for it’s vicious content. According to TMZ, The Parents Television Council, a non-profit organization that advocates responsible entertainment, is firing back at RiRi for her “cold, calculated execution of murder” in the footage.

PTC is outraged at Rihanna for performing her own line of justice and shooting a rapist in a crowded train station. In addition, their dissatisfaction also goes into Rihanna tweeting her fans that the video contained, “a very strong underlying message 4 girls like me.”

“If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass,” said PTC.

The group is also upset at BET for airing the video.
