OK. So we all have our feelings about Chris Brown – some hate him, some love him, some forgive him, and some even say that his violent physical rage against Rihanna was an entitlement (and what the fuck is wrong with you people – no one deserves to be hit you bunch of twats).
Chris has also kind of stayed out of the spotlight since the whole fucking-up-Rihanna’s-world thing, (with, you know, the exception of whining that his albums were suffering because people couldn’t get over the fact that he brutalized his girlfriend for the world to see)
And then he comes out and does this:
Yes. Posts his certificate of completion for participating in an anti-domestic violence class. On Twitter. His mama must be so proud – maybe she can hang it next to the photo of her boy in the orange smock, who’s picking trash off of the side of the highway. … I mean come on guys. It’s nice, you know, his tweet and all about being ‘proud’ that he completed the (ahem, court-mandated) course, but I think flaunting the certificate that states ‘Yep, Chris Brown attended each and every single meeting and didn’t spend the entire time texting bitches on his phone’ is pretty classless, plainly, because it just screams ‘Attention! And more of it, motherfuckers!’
Just break it down – say a good non-celebrity friend of yours was busted for beating the hell out of his or her significant other. Imagine, obviously, the embarrassment and shame that both parties went through. You’d think that your friend would want to serve his or her time, learn a wicked valuable lesson, and pray like the hammers of hell that those around would be forgiving. What, then, would you think of your friend if he or she decided to post a photo of a domestic violence graduation on Facebook? Wouldn’t you think that the entire thing had been cheapened, and it was a last ditch effort at sucking the very last bit of attention through a busted straw? Yes, you would. Because it’s unnecessary. It would be in bad taste for your friend to do it, and it’s in even worse taste to do it from a place of celebrity, Chris Brown.
I’m glad that you’ve learned your lesson Chris, I really am. I hope you’ve taken forgiveness and forgiven yourself. I also hope to God that you never get to a place again where you resort to violence in any circumstances.
But what the fuck all over this story.
