Rihanna’s “Man Down” video has set off a controversy that has gotten everyone weighing in.

Whether it be the Parents Television Council or BET, it seems everyone has an opinion on the music video for the reggae tune that has opened up a debate on rape, revenge and violence.

Now, Gabrielle through her Twitter account,  shared her feelings on the “Man Down” video, saying:

Gabrielle, who was raped at the age of 19, has spoken publicly about the ordeal and has supported several organizations working with victims of sexual abuse.

Recalling the painful incident, Gabrielle said:

“At some point he put the gun down and calmly asked me to hand him the gun and, at that point, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s me or you, and it ain’t gonna be me today. I’m about to kill you.’ “I grabbed the gun, I spun around and did the best I could trying to kill him.”
