Dear Chris Brown: fuck you. Seriously. Chris Brown is one of the most repulsive human beings alive. The fact that Chris Brown is still relevant and the media has left behind his awful actions, which are still happening as recent as last year with his ex-girlfriend as reported on by Daily Mail, is a tragedy in of itself. Let’s start at the beginning though.

For all three people who don’t know, Chris Brown is a rapper, producer, singer, dancer, and just about everything else in the book. He began his musical career in the early 2000s with his debut album titled Chris Brown, after himself, a record that has hit double platinum as years go on. Since that album, Chris Brown has received numerous awards including a Grammy, a World Music award, and even a Kid’s Choice Award (if only 2000s kids could see the mistake they made). To this day, Chris Brown has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, like Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and even with DJ Khaled beginning in 2016. If one does not know the personal history of Chris Brown then they might say, “Wow, that’s quite an impressive career.” And it is. However, all of his accomplishments are diminished by his private actions.

In 2009, Chris Brown and his girlfriend at the time, pop singer Rihanna, got into an argument which lead to Chris physically assaulting her as originally reported by Daily News in 2009.  The attack was so bad that Rihanna required hospitalization after the attack. Chris was described as having no injuries or scratches on him, according to police officers who were present when he turned himself in six hours after the attack. Of course, this was after he ran from police when they arrived at the scene of the incident. Pictures came out after the attack of Rihanna’s condition as well. It was horrifying. The media had a complete view of Chris Brown’s temper now. Did that change anything? Did Chris Brown get charged and put in jail for his disturbing actions? Of course not. He received a plea deal of community labor, five years of probation, and domestic violence counseling. Just a slap on the wrist.

After this incident, Chris Brown shared his feelings about the situation on Larry King Live on September 2, 2009: “I’m in shock, because, first of all, that’s not who I am as a person, and that’s not who I promise I want to be.”  Oh really, Chris? Are you not a short-tempered, woman-assaulting scumbag? In fact, you even said that you have no memory of the incident occurring! Sorry Chris, but that excuse doesn’t cut it; you beat a woman so badly that she was hospitalized and you don’t remember it? That’s a lie and you should be downright ashamed of yourself for claiming that. Some of Chris Brown’s defenders dismiss the whole thing by citing his apology. How does that undo the damage done to Rihanna? Not only does she have to remember the pain you put her through and have what you did to her plastered all over the news, but she has to live with the mental scarring that domestic abuse does to a person. The other point raised by the defenders is that, apparently, “Rihanna and Chris Brown made up! They guest-starred on each other’s songs now!”. Whoopty doo, that does absolutely nothing to address the fact that he got off with no prison time for beating up his partner. “Innocent until proven guilty” obviously doesn’t apply here, because CHRIS BROWN PLED GUILTY TO THE CHARGES!  So no, Chris Brown doesn’t get a free pass.

However, the media certainly gave him a free pass. In fact, he suffered  no real negative consequences because of his actions. The next album he released later that same year sold over 300,000 copies which was also nominated for 2 Grammy Awards. Some radio stations boycotted his music but most did not. His acting career didn’t take a hit either; he was still getting roles in films such as Takers and appeared on TV shows like Tosh.0. But maybe he did change then, maybe he saw what this backlash could have been and maybe he really did mean his apology. Nope. On Good Morning America in 2011, Chris Brown had a temper tantrum about being asked about the assault (some people will call it an incident, even though he straight up attacked a woman). He ended up throwing something at the window during a commercial break, which damaged the window. Not a violent person, Chris?

Now flash forward ahead to 2011 to when Chris Brown began dating a new woman named Karrueche Tran. Karrueche is a actress and model who has had an off and on relationship with Chris Brown, but currently off for the rest of eternity. They eventually split after the revelation that Chris Brown had a child with another woman. So not only is Chris Brown a short tempered, violent scumbag, he is also a cheater too. He just gets better and better. So after their final breakup Chris Brown began getting aggressive with her (a very common theme) and demanding that she return everything he gave her. When she refused, Chris Brown then threatened her with violence. According to Karrueche, Chris even texted her “Bitch I will beat the shit out of you” as reported by TMZ and The Guardian. You did not learn. Seriously, fuck you Chris Brown. Tran also claimed that Chris had abused her before in the past. I believe her 100%. Chris has a violent past and has committed the same crime before. Thankfully Karrueche got a restraining order against the monster for 5 years. Sadly Chris Brown isn’t behind bars and rotting in a cell where he belongs. This restraining order incident only happened one year ago.

Why bring this up now though? This is all old news. Well, Chris Brown is still making music. This year in March, Chris Brown even went double platinum with comedy rapper Lil Dicky. I heard their song “Freaky Friday” for the first time two months ago, awhile after it came out. I wish I had heard it sooner. For those who haven’t heard the song, it is all about Lil Dicky switching bodies with Chris Brown and realizing how great it is being Chris Brown. The entire point of the song can be summed up with the line of Chris Brown realizing that he loves himself. Yes, the entire point of the song is to teach Chris Brown to love himself! That isn’t even the worst moment in the song. By far the line that actually made me spit out my drink was when Chris Brown, in the body of Lil Dicky (a scrawny white Jewish boy), says, “Ain’t nobody judging ’cause I’m black or my controversial past, I can go to see a movie and relax!” I am at a loss for words. Controversial? There’s nothing controversial about it! You, Chris Brown, beat up 2 woman – one of them multiple times – got a restraining order against you, and are a despicable piece of human garbage. Boom, nothing controversial about that!

My final thoughts are this. I hope Chris Brown goes to prison, forever. I hope he loses all his money. I hope everything he has worked for goes crashing down into flames. I hope he goes broke, because he deserves it. So fuck you, Chris Brown.
