Disturbing study: Boston youths blame Rihanna for domestic beating

A Boston Public Health Commission survey on teenagers and dating violence released yesterday offered up some pretty chilling results: Nearly half of the kids surveyed said they think Rihanna was "responsible" for what happened between her and her boyfriend, Chris Brown.

Rihanna, who turned 21 a few weeks after the incident, was beaten severely enough to require hospitalization.
Brown, 19, who reportedly had a history of violence toward Rihanna, turned himself in and was charged with two felonies.

Yet 46 percent of the kids surveyed said that they thought Rihanna was to blame for the beating; 51 percent said Brown was at fault, and 52 percent said that both of them were somehow responsible.
And, according to the survey, a significant number of males and females said Rihanna was now destroying Chris Brown's career.
