Earlier this year Chris Brown was criticised by domestic abuse charities for recent comments he made about his history of domestic violence. He has been accused of “blaming” Rihanna for his assault on her before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Brown recently opened up about the incident in a new documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome To My Life. After his comments made headlines, two domestic abuse charities, Refuge and Women’s Aid, spoke out in criticism of Brown.
