Rape culture is when people think it’s funny to call a survivor of intimate partner violence an “idiot” and joke about hitting her.
Joan then tweeted:
Honey, @Rihanna, everyone knows: If he hit you once, he’ll hit you again. Read the statistics. PS – Love to have you on Fashion Police!
I get that her schtick is mocking celebrities, but really, stfu. Spare us the concern trolling right after you joke about taking your “turn” on a woman who experienced intimate partner violence.
Being abused by a loved one does not automatically make all your love for them disappear—and it would be really fucking nice if we could stop blaming and shaming survivors for their feelings. If you haven’t been there, and even if you have, it’s nobody’s place to treat a survivor like this. So disgusted.
