TV actors in soup for mocking Rihanna-Brown
Dawson, known for his work in TV soap ‘Hollyoaks’, wrote on Twitter: "I hear Rihanna is back with Chris Brown... well if you can't beat 'em, join them."
Thomas of ‘Coronation Street’ fame sent the same message to his 167,000 followers.
Channel 4's ‘Hollyoaks’ and ITV1's ‘Coronation Street’ both feature anti-domestic violence messages -- and campaigners urged them to take action against Dawson and Thomas.
The Sun reported that their comments have apparently not gone down well with the showmakers as well as the fans and both the actors are likely to be questioned.
"This is not the sort of comment we would ever sanction. We will be talking to the actor," a ‘Hollyoaks’ spokeswoman was quoted as saying.
"We will look into the situation on Monday," an ITV spokeswoman said.
Rihanna was physically assaulted by Brown during their relationship in 2009 and was even hospitalised.
They parted ways after that -- but the two have now patched up.
