OK! VIDEO: WATCH RIHANNA “SHOOT A MAN DOWN” IN NEW MUSIC VIDEO

The Parents Television Council isn’t exactly loving the new video. In fact, they’re blasting the singer for a “cold, calculated execution of murder,” as reported by TMZ. They’re pretty angry over it, saying shooting a rapist in a crowded train station isn’t exactly justice.

Industry Ears, another watchgroup is also up in arms. They indicated,  “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass …”

Despite the backlash, Rihanna is sending her message loud and clear. In three tweets she wrote, “Young girls/women all over the world…we are a lot of things! We’re strong innocent fun flirtatious vulnerable, and sometimes our innocence can cause us to be naïve! We always think it could NEVER be us, but in reality, it can happen to ANY of us! So ladies be careful and #listentoyomama! I love you and I care!”
