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!!!
