Rihanna's latest video, "Man Down," premiered on 106 & Park on May 31. Since then there has been a great deal of controversy surrounding the video. Some have questioned the network's decision to broadcast "Man Down," which includes a scene in which a rapist is shot dead.

While the "Man Down" video complied with BET Networks' standards and guidelines, and was approved for air, the video has sparked a passionate and important dialogue on a number of issues, ranging from gun crime and anger management to rape and domestic violence. Terrence and Rocsi will continue this conversation with the livest audience tonight on 106 & Park.

Outside of discussing the video, the co-hosts of 106 & Park will also address violence and abuse issues and direct viewers to information on ways to get help and further information on violence prevention and peaceful conflict resolution.
