Singer takes to Twitter to express her gratitude over controversial music video

Rihanna has thanked a series of US pressure groups who attacked her controversial music video for ‘Man Down’.

The singer has taken to her Twitter page to thank The Parents Television Council in particular who criticised the song, saying it promotes murder. Rihanna responded, saying she wanted the track to ‘give a voice to victims’.

The video portrays the singer shooting her attacker after being raped.
