During Sunday night's Grammy Awards, we got to see Adele's awesome comeback, Jennifer Hudson's emotional tribute to , and Glen Campbell's farewell performance. Adults over 35 discovered Nicki Minaj and deadmau5.
The Grammys also spawned something disturbing at the show and in the Twitterverse.
Chris Brown returned to the Grammys, literally the scene of his crime. Three years ago, on the eve of the 2009 Grammys, Brown beat up then-girlfriend Rihanna, leaving her with a battered and bruised face. Brown was convicted of assault, and was sentenced to probation and community service.
Some were not happy with the way he was feted, with multiple performances including leading a tribute to late Soul Train creator Don Cornelius. Celebrities from Miranda Lambert to Jack Osbourne to Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet were sharing their disapproval via social media.
"Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rihanna should read the police report on exactly what he did," actor Wil Wheaton tweeted.
Meanwhile on Twitter, some of Brown's female fans showed their love with tweets that could be charitably described as clueless.
One told critics to "shut up" and that "he can beat me up all night if he wants." The offer by young women to let Brown beat and punch them was a common theme in the tweets.
Today, let's talk popular culture, relationship violence and young people.
Do you think letting Chris Brown have such a prominent role in the Grammys so soon after his crime was the right thing to do, or a bad message?
What about the girls who tweeted they would let a man beat them because he was cute, rich and famous? And what about the boys who read those tweets?
Share what you think young people need to know about relationship violence, and how to lay a foundation from the beginning that teaches children that violence doesn't mean someone loves you so much they can't help themselves.
