DV on Larry King Live, CNN

16Mar09

Joy Behar (a host of Larry King Live) and her guests Robin Givens – ex-wife of Mike Tyson – and Denise Brown – sister of O.J. Simpson’s late wife Nicole Brown – discuss the topic of domestic abuse, focusing on their own experiences as well as the most recent high profile example of the subject, Chris Brown’s attack on his girlfriend Rihanna.

In this video, CNN provides an analysis on the Chris Brown/Rhianna domestic violence case, examining the legal implications of the case as well as changing US attitudes towards Domestic Violence and Abuse.

Celebrities bring all sorts of issues into the spotlight, either intentionally or unintentionally– and recently, domestic violence awareness has been receiving unprecedented public and media attention due to the Rihanna/Chris Brown case. It’s troubling that DV has had to wait for something so high-profile in order to get its feet off the ground, but we hope that domestic violence continues to receive the attention it deserves as this issue continues to be discussed on a national and local level.
