Teen Violence Campaign Launched on YouTube

“SHAME ON YOU RHIANNA!!!” Anonymous Teen (NY Times)

The New York Times covered the real story and impact that the highly publicized Chris Brown and Rihanna incident has had on American Teens.

"Yeah, men hit women, and women hit men. It was blown out of proportion because they’re celebrities," the Times quoted one 17-year old from Texas.

Do Something had a different response from their teenagers - outrage. Do Something teen members created this reenactment video to show the incident without celebrities and tell the real story of teen dating abuse.

The fact is that 1 in 3 teens is abused in a relationship. Check out our video and send it to your friends:
