Chris Brown and Rihanna’s worlds have been in a viral tailspin after their bitter pre-Grammy argument. Details are beginning to emerge about the conflict, and by all indications it’s Rihanna who was the victim of boyfriend Chris Brown’s rage.

These ad campaigns are meant to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse of all kinds, empowering individuals in dangerous situations to break the cycle of violence, whether the victim is a child, a lover or an animal. Some are sponsored, while others are guerrilla endeavors. “Extra” has also reported that Chris Brown grew up in an abusive household, driving the “break the cycle” point of these campaigns home in a most poignant manner.
