MAJOR RANT ALERT!

What THE F*CK is wrong with people?? Since when did we forgive Chris Brown? Since when was it cool to start playing his songs on the radio/in clubs again? Since when was it OK to buy a ticket to see him in concert in Dublin??? Every time I turn on the radio there’s some sell-out station advertising tickets and promoting the event like it’s a good thing?! And if I hear one more gushing idiot going on about how much they worship him I’ll actually scream! It’s like they think it’s a bit cool and edgy to love Chris Brown because it’s somewhat controversial. Seriously…WTF?!

This is not a Michael Jackson ‘Did he?/Didn’t he?’ situation. This man is a convicted woman beater! If a man brutally beat up your SISTER / MOTHER / AUNT / BEST FRIEND would you forgive him a year later and support his business? Of course you wouldn’t! Why is this man any exception? Because he’s supposedly so “hot”??!!….GET A BRAIN!!!! He pummeled her face until she bled! He bit her until she bled. He pulled her hair until she bled!

I’m fully aware of the dangers of sounding like a sanctimonious git right now, but what kind of message is all of this sending?? Even leaving aside the damage promoting a man like this is causing, surely the simple fact is that he was bad and does not deserve to be glorified?! Why is this not obvious? Please somebody tell me, because I don’t understand. Half-baked notions of forgiveness and rehabilitation are beyond laughable to me. It happened LAST YEAR!

I’m so angry about this. PLEASE people, cop the f*ck on!!!

Will you support Chris Brown?

Will certainly not support someone like that! If he did it once he is bound to do it again soon or later!

He should disappear into obscurity. He is an amazingly talented singer, this much is true, I guess people are overlooking everything else. Which is bad.

But the WORST people are those little teeny boppers. Saw a bebo site there a while back and this girl had practically dedicated her whole page to Chris Brown and her tagline was ‘I still support you chris’ as if she was standing up for a man who had been unfairly victimised. Like Hello!!

I think its about time we all forgave Hitler too…misunderstood and a real talent…(ok, comparing him to Hitler might be a step too far but still)

Hear hear. I had the exact same reaction when I saw an ad for his show on telly. Why anyone would give that abusive scumbag the time of day is beyond me. Great singer me hole, he’s a little knacker and should be branded TOXIC.

I thought the same when I heard the ads on the radio.
Last year when it all came out I thought his career would be over (rightly so).
Eh, looks like that saying is true - “there is no such thing as bad publicity.”
It is actually scary to know that someone can do that and still have a brilliant career. He should have been immediately dropped from his record label and blacklisted. Anyone who supports him or his career are supporting domestic violence.

It’s joke but he is far from the only one. It seems to be a trend among the celebs, they are getting away with murder (OJ springs to mind :) ). It’s like they can do no wrong and the gobshites who support them need to get a life and a brain while they are at it!

If I had a child there would be NO way I would let her/him go to his concerts or support him in anyway. There should be much harsher punishments for crimes against women and for assault in general. Supporting him is tantamount to sending the message that what he did was some how ok! And its NOT! Sorry feel very very strongly about this!

i dont think he is playing the o2…hes playing the marquee in cork…so maybe they thought they’d have an easier time getting people to pay to see him down there?

He’s not playing the 02, another place in Dublin- but lets not even give him the publicity of talking about the dates etc. Waster.
