The twitter conversation above is only a small sample of what has pan out across blogs across the world, since the news of Chad and Evelyn broke. We live in a cold world…where abuse is clearly justified. I’ve been called ‘fat’ ‘hoe’ ‘ugly’ (you name it) by an ex. I’ve had my wrist twisted up and arm damn near pulled out of my socket. I’ve been shaken…until almost the point of passing out. I’ve been pinned down with a knee in my back…helpless. I may have said some things that caused quite a stir. Hell, I’ve even pushed my ex which could have resulted in me having a disfigured hand if it weren’t for the neighbors hearing my screams. Despite my role in any of the above scenarios, I do not feel that my ex’s physical and verbal abuse was justified. He was 10x stronger and faster than me – pretty capable of taking me out with one blow.
I’m probably the only person in the world praying for Mr. and Mrs. Johnson-Ochocinco (not really praying but I hope the two will work it out). Despite Evelyn’s ‘knuck if you buck, down for my b*tches’ behavior displayed on television, I feel for her and I’m absolutely disgusted with the public’s reaction to her being abused.
ABUSE IS ABUSE.
Violence towards anyone is wrong. Anyone that endorses violence or abuse based upon a person’s character/behavior is just as wrong. And yes, call me delusional if you want, but I’m convinced that these two are indeed in love with each other – despite the media’s negative portrayal of their relationship. Evelyn is undoubtedly crazy…but so is Chad. They are made for each other. They seem to have some sort of understanding and it works for them. And I’m sure that this isn’t the 1st violent incident that has occurred between the two of them. Also, they have been holding down a relationship for quite some time. So how is this a fly-by-night opportunity for Evelyn to get Chad’s money?? CHAD WILL LAND A POSITION WITH A NFL TEAM AGAIN. If Terrell Owen’s tired ass is back in the NFL – trust me Chad will be back! So let’s cut the bullshit about Evelyn bouncing because Chad was fired on his off day. She’s not that stupid.
There’s a FB/Youtube
blogger, public figure, motivational speaker, not-really-sure-of-her role that stated that Evelyn should be “dropped kicked” for filing for divorce. Her commenters went on a wild tangent defending the statement by labeling Evelyn as an ‘opportunist’ ‘liar’ ‘gold digger’ ‘schemer’ and etc. One commenter even stated that there’s no rule in the Bible that states a man shouldn’t hit a woman.
If Evelyn indeed put her hands on Chad 1st, given his physical strength and power, he should have simply walked away. Not bulldozer her with his head. That’s pretty damn savage. I do not agree that Evelyn should have filed for divorce. I’ve never been married but I’m almost sure that this divorce is a direct result of her being publicly humiliated and angry…and let’s not forget that she just lost a loved one within a matter of 24hrs after being banged up. She’s clearly being irrational. We will never know the full story of what really transpired between the two. But given the fact that Chad is extremely apologetic further validates my point that he should not have headbutted her, he knew it was wrong, and Evelyn’s claims should NOT be dismissed due to her portrayal on TV.
Maybe I’m being too nice, but what’s your take on this? Do you think that Evelyn is indeed trying to ‘cash out’ on Chad Johnson? Given her TV personality, do you believe that Evelyn is reaping what she sow? Would you be singing the same tune if this resulted in a…something a bit more tragic…like death?? You know that’s how some abusive relationships end??? Not to be dramatic but domestic violence is a serious issue. Let’s chat…this is burning me.
