Gabrielle Union Once Tried to Shoot a Rapist, Defends Rihanna

In the wake of the inexplicable outrage over Rihanna‘s “Man Down” video, which depicts a rape victim shooting her attacker, actress Gabrielle Union has stepped forward to share her own real-life experience. Union used her Twitter feed to talk about the incident:

Durin my rape I tried 2 shoot my rapist, bt I missed. Over the yrs I realized tht killin my rapist wouldve added insult 2 injury

The DESIRE 2 kill someone whose abused/raped u is understandable, bt unless its self defense n the moment 2 save ur life, just ADDS 2 ur troubles

#mandown video did a GREAT job of getting the ENTIRE world TALKING abt RAPE. I hope tht it leads 2 HEALING & PREVENTS RAPE

 

Union has spoken publicly about being raped before, but she had never before revealed that she attempted to shoot her attacker.
