• Domestic violence should not be tolerated regardless of gender

    I recently read an blog post regarding actress Emma Roberts. Her alleged domestic violence against her boyfriend Evan Peters has been dropped, so there is some discussion around whether what happened has been downplayed. She issued a statement saying “It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”

    Read the article here.

    I believe that this is an emotive article, however it does raise some extremely valid points, firstly that domestic violence should not be accepted or tolerated in any circumstances regardless of gender, race or sexuality.

    It also highlights how individuals or representatives play down what has occurred in order for them to move forward quickly almost as if sweeping events under the carpet.

    Unless appropriate intervention work is made with this couple, then the alleged violence and abuse has, based on evidence available through research, a strong chance of continuing and becoming more violent and abusive.

    Domestic violence should not be played down, and it should not be tolerated within our society, celebrities are often seen as role models for others but lets not excuse their behaviour, but assist with intervention and support.
