Kelly Brook and "Girl Power"


This afternoon I have been saddened by social media, apparently Kelly Brook has been doing the media rounds today and has been open about punching two of her boyfriends in the past. 

And what is the response to this? 

"Credit to Kelly Brook, #GirlPower"

"Kelly Brooks #Lad"


and Kelly Brook herself has justified herself by saying that it's ok because the men are bigger than her so she wouldn't do them much damage.

No.

No.

No.

This is not on. EVER. No one should ever hit their partner, this is domestic abuse. It is wrong. 

I am not even going to turn the tables and say what if her ex boyfriend spoke about hitting her because we know the outcry there would be there, but Kelly Brook feels that is ok? That it is a joke? 

It's 2014, time to face facts that victims of domestic abuse are men as well as women. Women hitting men isn't funny, men hitting women isn't funny. Someone hitting another person, just ISN'T funny. 

It's not about gender, it's about abuse. 

What do you think?

  3. I'm happily in my blogosphere hole right now so have not seen any of this. But dear god, how awful. No, violence of any kind is reprehensible. There really aren't any words for how disgraceful that behaviour is.

  5. Disgraceful behaviour from Kelly Brook. She's promoting abuse! Incredibly wrong of her. Also secondary to that, she calls herself a "real woman" and I know she's discussing body image here. All woman are real, no matter what their dress size is!
    Great post.

  6. SHE'S AN IDIOT. If she was male there would be 'an enquiry underway'.

  7. I LOVE you for writing this post! *hugs* I think that it's extremely important to strive to make lives better for everyone and not just issues that concern us directly, which is why I always fight for women's rights - even if it doesn't directly affect me.

    Kelly's excuses are quite pitiful. Since when does a person being bigger or stronger make it any more acceptable to hit them? I also know a few men who are built like an ox but are just as emotionally fragile as the rest of us - being attacked is abusive and not a nice feeling.

    I also think Kelly's attitude also highlights a wider, underlying problem in our society which doesn't really seem to have much of an issue with women-on-men violence and is even a source of amusement for some as this secretly filmed video showed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3PgH86OyEM

    The video goes to show how much of a problem men face when it comes to reporting domestic abuse - that people don't take it seriously enough (including the authorities), and perhaps laugh it off. It is something that really needs to be tackled. The victims can very easily be your brother/son/friend/boyfriend/father. Unfortunately men do not have the amazing support network women do (and rightly deserve). Perhaps it is of little wonder that the suicide rate for men is three and a half times that of women. A lot more work needs to be done, and I wish the media would start to address this - at the moment it almost entirely ignore men's issues.

  8. What a crazy ass bitch!!! I honestly thought better of Kelly until I heard this but now she just sounds like a psycho. If she's hitting people she obviously has some serious issues. Either anger or jealousy. Girl needs to check herself before she wrecks herself. xxx

  9. She's an air thief. Can we please ship her and Katie fucking Hopkins off to Mars?

    Violence is never the answer. I can't believe she'd EVER think it was a good idea to do that, let alone talk about it.

  10. Totally agree I saw this yesterday and was disgusted at her behaviour. She has gone down so much in my estimation. Stupid girl.
