This is just wrong.
An anonymous author going under the name of J. Lola has written a Fifty Shades of Grey-style fan fic entitled Fifty Shades of Sin!
How… imaginative? Well, wait. Hold that thought…
The story follows the character Robyn, which just happens to be Rihanna's real name, and her romance with the violent character … named Chris.
Gee, we wonder who that could be? Oh, that's right, Chris Brown.
J. Lola posted this book description onto the fan fic's Amazon.com page:
"This is the strange story of Robyn and Chris, and how they find love in a HOPELESS PLACE. From the moment they meet, their attraction is explosive. They fall hard for each other. They crave each other every minute of the day. However, they just cant be together. This is a story about love, but it explores the difficulties, sacrifices, and pain that love brings as well."
At one point in the book, the character of Robyn says this about Chris:
“I was hesitant [to date him]. I wasn’t sure why, but I felt as if meeting him would open up a box that I wasn’t sure I was ready to open. Thinking back, I realize that there was a part of me blasting out a warning to stay away from Chris then. Even before I met him.”
The book itself makes references to Chris' Asian groupie girlfriend, and Robyn's friend Melissa. Could they be based on real life Karrueche Tran, and Melissa Forde respectively?
Yes, but probably not respectfully.
At one point Chris threatens to break the hand of a bystander who might potentially interfere with their romance, which turns Robyn on, and he threatens to "beat the sh*t" out of her current love interest.
The two characters get into a relationship despite Chris warning Robyn that he's "f*cked up," and the book ends with a disclaimer about future books to come:
“Follow more of Robyn and Chris’ story, all the way down to what happened that sad night of the Grammys.”
A million ughs!
This really is in such poor taste.
There is nothing sexy about the battering of women, and nothing erotic about domestic abuse.
Why would anyone want to capitalize on the story of someone getting really hurt?
