There’s been a lot of response from fellow celebrities lately on the whole Chris Brown and Rihanna beating incident, and so far, most of the responses have either been apathetic to the situation or completely illogical (meaning, It’s ok. We can look past the beating he gave).

With recent reports of the celebrity couple getting back together and even recording a duet together, it seemed as if Rihanna had no good advice from anybody. But now, Oprah, one of the most prominent and powerful talk show personalities on television has given Rihanna a stern warning against her recent actions, saying:

“And also, ‘Love doesn’t hurt’. I’ve been saying this to women for years – love doesn’t hurt. And if a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again. I don’t care what his plea is, he will hit you again.”

I couldn’t agree more. I’d be very surprised if this didn’t have some sort of widespread effect on the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna situation.
