Those Headphones You’re Wearing Were Created by A Woman Beater

I think it’s interesting just how psychotically hypocritical people can be.

We will boycott a company if it supports gay marriage and boycott a company if it doesn’t support gay marriage.

We want to make sure chickens aren’t treated poorly on a processing line but support late term abortion.

Those kinds of hypocritical contradictions.

I just thought of something that has been bugging me for years. 

Beats headphones aren’t anywhere near the quality that people ascribe to them. 

But they have a big name attached to them, so they MUST be good, right?

Rapper and music mogul Dr. Dre co-founded Beats and made a fortune off of the phenomenon that ensued.

Fair enough.

But if you really want to whip out your morality and your “I’m offended” cards, then how can you proudly wear headphones created by such a blatant misogynist??

The biopic “Straight Out of Compton” is coming out soon and from what I am gathering, it is more fiction than fact. But so are most biopics.

But here’s a reminder of the man behind your favorite headphones.

Back in the day, he BEAT a female talk host after a drunken rage.

According to Rolling Stone: “He picked her up by the hair and began slamming her head and the right side of her body repeatedly against a brick wall near the stairway as his bodyguard held off he crowd with a gun. Are Dre tried to throw her down the stairs and failed, he began kicking her in the ribs and hands. She escaped and ran into the women’s restroom. Dre followed her and grabbed her from behind by the hair again and proceeded to punch her in the back of the head.”

Nice guy, huh?

He and his musical cohorts laughed about it and ridiculed it even after settling the lawsuit.

Dre proudly exclaimed, “It ain’t no big thing. I just threw her through a door.”

Oh THAT’S all you did? Oh, ok. I thought it was something serious.

Enjoy those headphones! And don’t look down on someone who supports a company despite their position on social issues when the beating of women doesn’t apparently concern you.
