Apparently Law & Order: Special Victims Unit isn't a big Chris Brown fan. In a new ad out this week, next Wednesday's episode—titled "Funny Valentine—is being promoted by NBC as "a familiar story of two celebrities." A quick glance of the 30-second promo glaringly resembles Brown's relationship with Rihanna.
As seen in the preview, a beautiful female singer is severely beaten by her 20-something hip-hop star boyfriend. The visuals of the woman's wounded face look eerily similar to Rihanna's after Brown beat her in 2009. Also like the real-life incident, the singer ultimately stands by her abusive beau, despite a lofty case against him.
The TV boyfriend, however, is later found dead. So, there's that. But SVU certainly knows what they're doing here. The episode airs Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
