#Grammy’s #DomesticViolence is NOT OKAY

From Alex DiBranco, Senior Organizer, Women’s Rights, Change.org:

Dear feminist bloggers and advocates,

I’m reaching out to request your help in calling the Grammys to account for trivializing domestic violence. Chris Brown’s performance at the Grammys last night, the first time since he beat up then-girlfriend Rhianna, has caused significant outrage. What’s more shocking is that Grammy Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich thinks that 
the awards show was “the victim of what happened.”

When Brett Simon saw that Chris Brown was back performing on the prestigious show last night, while still on probation for the domestic assault, he was upset. When he heard that the Grammys thought they were the real victim, he had to do something. That’s when Brett 
started a Change.org petition demanding an apology and a donation to a domestic violence organization.

Below is a list of tweets targeting Grammy performers and presenters, asking them to join the campaign. We’d appreciate if you would tweet and share with your networks. You can see further info on the campaign here:

Thanks,
Alex
