'Law & Order: SVU' revisits Chris Brown and Rihanna?

Tasteless teaser for upcoming episode seems all too familiar

Chris Brown should sue. He clearly came up with the idea of being a famous rapper who brutally assaults his girlfriend before "Law & Order: SVU" did.

Bing: More on Chris Brown | "Law & Order: SVU"

Oh, wait. According to the teaser run on Wednesday's episode, this "familiar story of two celebrities intertwined by abuse" clearly has nothing to do with the Chris Brown and Rihanna scandal. That's because the rap star is named Caleb. Check it out yourself:

Oh, and also, according to reports, Caleb gets murdered in the episode, titled "Funny Valentine," before his girlfriend has a chance to forgive and forget and accompany him to this year's Grammy Awards.

Plus: TV's break-out stars | Canceled or renewed

Well, then, this explains why Brown has so far posted no furious #TeamBreezy tweets about the episode. Obviously, it has nothing to do with him.

In related news, "Law & Order: SVU" is currently writing an episode about an Olympic runner with no legs who is accused of shooting his girlfriend to death. However, it's not Oscar Pistorius because the character is a marathon runner, not a sprinter.

Just kidding. We hope.

Which are you looking forward to more: the Chris Brown episode or what Brown's reaction will be to it?

"Law & Order: SVU" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

It's sad to say it takes one mans tragedy to make another man some money, what a sad world we live in. Put yourselves in Chris browns shoes. The man is only 23 years old and has enough to deal with, still fighting for not only himself but this "ho" he's with. It takes two to fight and Rhianna doesn't seem like the type to just sit here like most abused victims! She's not a good role model nor does she do anything that's not out of your own mind(other hen smoke drink sex any male she desires etc) most of u fellas wouldn't tolerate this from a regular girl! & most girls are followers thinking they would get more attention if they become Rihanna's! Seriously wake up! Illuminati covers all her **** up but Chris brown is the only one fighting his battles and hers yet no one can see this? That one comment by imomma was right, no one says anything about eminem or Pamela's ex but Chris brown is in the spot light lets go after him?? Wtf?! She's no better she doesn't write her own music she copies everyone else yet he's the real artist and he's trying. No one can make another person do anything but she sure is hell an good instigator! Illuminati covers up her **** just like the govt covers up theirs by media coverage, pay off the right ppl and your good to go!!

It was bad enough when he beat the crap out of her but then he grew and started hitting men instead. I mean really, why should anyone believe that he's sorry or he's changed when he keeps making the same "mistake" repeatedly? Should it really be ok that he chooses to hit men instead of women now? I don't wish for anything bad to happen to Rihanna but the cycle of abuse doesn't end and he will hurt her again.

Law & Order - whichever branch - has always taken news stories and made an episode about them.  Why make a big deal out of it?  At this point, who cares about Chris Brown and Rhianna?  She's made her choice to stay/go back.  Let it go. You can't save someone that doesn't want it.

First, Chris Brown is not a rapper. It is amazing how this is still a subject for discussion for people. It's almost like we are hoping Chris Brown jumps on Rihanna again. If he never does, will we give him an OOPS, MY BAD ! Eminem wrote raps about killing his wife, the mother of his child. He is an icon. Tommy Lee (Pamela's know the one that gave her hepatitus), Ozzy Osborne, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn all have had domestic charges against them. Why are we sitting around hoping people don't change, grow, or regret. Wow, I am so glad I am not in the public eye. I have made many mistakes. Thank God I only had to apologize to that one person and not the world. I believe Chris Brown is a brat, childish, and a bit self absorbed but DAMN. Aren't we sick of waiting for a woman to get beat up so we can all say I TOLD YOU SO?
