I get why some people would be upset about this photo that Rihanna posted, BUT at the same time I don’t agree with it. Yesterday Ri Ri took to Twitter/Instagram to send her prayers to the people affected by the Boston Marathon blasts. She attached a picture that had some fans going at her for posting it.

I saw it in a lot of different places, including news sources – not just blogs. It was a moment captured in time. Is it graphic? Yes. Should it be banned from the media? I don’t think so (I know some will disagree with me). If we hide these pictures that resulted from the explosions at the Boston Marathon, will people really understand the impact of it? It’s one thing to say 3 people died, it’s another thing to actually see how people were affected. This is a big topic that can be debated for days, so for now I’m going to leave it alone.
