If there's anyone who can relate to the Ray Rice scandal, it's Chris Brown.
The former Baltimore Ravens running back and the combustible R&B singer are two of the most high-profile domestic abuse perpetrators around.
This was clear last night when CBS nixed Rihanna from performing during its big Thursday Night Football pregame show in order to cover the Rice scandal.
A video leaked showing Ray knocking out Janay Palmer, his fiancee at the time and currently his wife, learning to his indefinite suspension from the NFL.
In the days since the footage leaked, debate has reached a fever pitch and the National Domestic Violence Hotline has seen an 84 percent increase in volume.
Women (and one ill-advised DiGiorno Tweet) have been weighing in around the clock with stories using the Twitter hashtags #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft.
So what does Brown, who was convicted of felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and whose image never fully recovered, think about Rice?
