Posting the photo was the absolutely RIGHT thing to do. Especially in view of the mindboggling comments that TMZ captured from celebrities sympathetic to Chrils Brown. As a nurse and a woman, I feel it is important to illustrate what domestic violence against women looks like. It is ugly, it is frightening, and anyone with any common sense and any sense of decency, should express outrage for Chris Brown's actions and deep compassion and sympathy for this young woman.
Keep up the good work TMZ. This isn't about TMZ doing something "wrong"..... You rock!! And I personally thank you.

Umm this picture should not be aired, because it's evidence in a an ongoing investigation and by releasing it all over the internet it may compromise that investigation. Not to mention that this picture is a result of a very senstive subject of domestic violence wher the victim should be protected first and formost and that means protected from the abuser and outsiders looking to further victimize her i.e. the people who choose to post this pic! SHAME on you!

TMZ, keep this pic up for as long as you can. Secrecy feuls domestic violence, so I'm glad this is out in the open. REALLY glad actually.

YOU people are the hippocrites. How can you demand THESE photos NOT be showed, when you (the public) eat up every celebrity photo and story published? Celeb photos and stories are so in demand that we have tons of garbage media outlets like TMZ and the such. Quite simple put, YOU are the reason her privacy has been invaded and YOU are the reason the photos were leaked. Had you people had anything better to do with you time, maybe someone wouldn't have been so interested in making money by leaking the photo. Open your eyes and realize that you're actually the biggest part of the problem. You have no right to judge TMZ for leaking the photo, but by doing so, you've actually solidified their reasoning for airing the photos. If it wasn't for the simple minded masses of people, TMZ wouldn't even exist. You're upset about a photo released by a show, that your collective interests have created! Ultimate Hypocrisy indeed!

I THINK THIS IS VERY SAD BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT THE MEDIA IS TAKING THE WHOLE SITUATION TOO FAR. I MEAN NO ONE DESERVES TO GET BEAT UP LIKE THIS BUT THERE IS SOME ONE ABUSED LIKE THIS EVERYDAY IN THE WORLD, SOMETIMES EVEN WORSE. I FEEL THAT WE SHOULD GIVE THESE TWO PEOPLE SOME PRIVACY BECAUSE THERE EVERYDAY PEOPLE LIKE US AND THEY DESERVE IT. YOU ALL ARE ACTING AS IF CHRIS BROWN KILLED RIHANNA. GIVE THEM A BREAK.

I STILL LOVE YOU CHRIS! LOLS (I DO THOUGH)

Congrats to you TMZ, everyone wanted to see the pictures whether they admit it or not, and you came through with them. Hopefully Rhianna will pull through this and ditch that D-Bag.

Stop Fronting!!!!!    

All of you people who came to see this picture are the reason to
blame for TMZ posting it! It's called supply and demand people!!!
Stop acting holier than thou when the fact remains you are all here
to see it, just like I am! Don't you all think it is hypocritical to
say TMZ is wrong for posting it? Does it make you feel better for
looking at it if you post a comment degrading it? HELLO! You don't
like it, don't look at it. If you do look at it.....don't complain
about it being there for you to see. TMZ is a business. They have
sponsors and people that pay for advertisements and they ALL want to
make money. All the traffic you've generated wheteher it be negative
or positive in nature equals dollar signs to them. Grow up! Stop
whining! Don't be stupid! Your compaints are comical! The reality
of this situation is only known to Chris and Rihanna. Your
speculations are meaningless. Have a great day folks!

Please take her picture down!!! This is so wrong. Rihanna needs her privacy to heal. And this is not helping her....she is already going through enough pain.

So they showed the picture just to let us all know they refuse to show it, clever!! and I think people still defending Chris (including celebrities) are all either dumb, heartless or hypocrite, anyways I think there's no need to thrash you TMZ, I think is necessary to show the picture so everybody knows what is happening.

AM NOT YOUR BITCH, BITCH.    

Everybody keeps saying its wrong of TMZ to do this. I am a nursing student it just so happens that right after we did DV, this happened. This abuse needs to be exposed and stopped. She could have been killed. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is a silent killer of women and sometimes men. We need to talk about it like we do Alcholics, drug abusers, cancer, AIDS, heart disease, etc.

oh boy, well to 'what the hell' and all u other ignorant individuals, please just give it up. everything u guys are writing is bogus. u guys aren't getting any cool points from cb so give it up. in his world ur a nobody so just stop it. he is totally guilty and him apologizing is enough proof of it. he knows martial arts for crying out loud! as for posting the pic, somebody had to do it. its messed up but once she sees it, i bet it will erase any desire (of rumors) of her wanting to get back together with him. its called a REALITY CHECK. even if it doesn't work for her, i can already see that many women are taking a step back and analyzing what they've experienced. he's gonna get what he deserves sooner or later. thats just the way the world works. he has acknowledged that his mother used to get beat up, how terrified he was and, how WRONG he knew it was. he even expressed the feeling of wanting to kill his mothers abuser. hes a big boy and sadly hes gonna have to look at himself in the mirror and realize thats hes turned into the same pathetic man that he hated so much for abusing his mother.
