Emma Roberts, of all people, was arrested for domestic violence after a bizarre and heated fight with her boyfriend, American Horror Story actor Evan Peters. Peters is not pressing charges, and Roberts’ publicist used the classic, “this was all just a big misunderstanding” line. From ET Online:
It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after [police] questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.
Yeah, okay. After hearing more details about this case, I’m getting pissed off. This is a classic domestic assault excuse. Just because she’s a young woman as opposed to a man doesn’t mean that this isn’t a serious charge. Violence, regardless of gender, is not okay. Judging by these recent photos, her boyfriend has forgiven her. What is going on in their relationship to lead to this? An “insider” told Us Weekly (via Daily News) that,
Emma is very dramatic. [What happened was] way out of control.
Again, with the stupid excuses and explanations. And here’s another classic excuse, the “just a kid” line. From a different source:
They’re a couple young kids. Their romance is pretty extreme. They just behave in a way that’s very passionate.
They’re just too young to know better, is that it? Hmmm…where have we heard that one before?
