Chris Brown is a rapper, singer, and genuinely terrible human being on multiple levels – his arrogance surpassed only by his intense, almost otherworldly stupidity. Not unlike a “bad” character in a children’s movie, Chris seems to revel in his awfulness and apparent ability to embody all that is wrong about our culture.
In 2009 he beat his then-girlfriend Rihanna into a bloody pulp. Here’s a full account of what happened, from the court documents:
Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.
Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the sh— out of you when we get home! You wait and see!’”
Brown looked at her and stated, “You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!”
Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.
Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear.
He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F.’s left and right carotid arteries, causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness.
She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers.
So that happened, and then this guy still has a fucking career? The mind reels.
Anyway. So he has a tattoo done, like some people do. But instead of, say, getting a tattoo of Kermit the frog on his ankle or perhaps a rose or bunny rabbit he decides to get a tattoo of what appears to be Rihanna’s bruised and battered face from the night that he nearly killed her.
Here’s the two images side by side, one of the tattoo, the other of Rihanna’s bruised and beaten face taken after the vicious, animal-like attack on her:
“Sources close to” Chris Brown say that it is not of Rihanna. “Sources close to” Chris Brown are fucking abuse deniers.
Who wants to start a petition to make sure this guy never puts out another record or performs another show?
