People will tell you that twitter is full of fast minds, some uncovering injustice and worldsized wrongs, and reacting quickly to them. Yeah right. They’ve only just realised that Chris Brown beat Rihanna up and that if they’d said something sooner, he might not have been at the Grammies last night winning an award.
Basically, all this is YOUR FAULT.
See, we’ve been slating Chris Breezy Brown for a good three years now – since the incident took place basically – and all you’ve done is sit on your idle behinds worrying about Egyptian uprisings and Syria because you sincerely believe you know what you’re talking about. You don’t. You’re thick. You should stick to celebrity culture with us dummies.
So what happened? Well, some blogger wrote a thoughtful piece, which ostensibly said ‘HEY! I’M REALLY NOT OKAY WITH CHRIS BROWN BEING AT THE GRAMMIES‘ and half of twitter dutifully retweeted it, safe in the knowledge that it would make them look like a) The cared about things like women’s rights b) Domestic violence and c) The glamorisation of idiots with fists.
However, Chris Brown being absolved of his knuckles is entirely your fault. He’s been growing increasingly famous, never once apologising for beating the crap out of Rihanna. What were you doing? Playing a hashtag game or trying to curry favour with the opposite sex by bleating on about how lonely, misunderstood and quirkily creative you are.
All the while, you were effectively encouraging Chris Brown’s ‘Team Breezy’ fans to defend a man who has denied everything and apologised for nothing.
And last night, pretty much 3 years to the day he assaulted Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party, Chris Brown won Best R&B Album for his ‘F.A.M.E.’ (forgiving all my enemies) LP.
Thanks to the towering lack of external pressure from you dimwits, Brown was able to collect his award without so much of a nod to what he’s done or learned. His acceptance speech saw him note how nervous he was, a brief thank-you to God and the Grammies and a?shout-out to Team Breezy.
You would’ve thought that, if you wanted to successfully clamber out of your pop-probation, the winning of a Grammy would’ve been the perfect opportunity to say sorry for what had happened and, indeed, a big thanks to everyone who had presumably helped you to learn about your mistakes, making you a ‘better man’, giving you a ‘second chance’ and all that hokey jazz.
But no. Nothing. That’s because everyone became too passively angry, far too late. Even the judge looking after Brown hasn’t cut short his probation. Were you told? Yep.
And have you seen the police report that details what Brown did to Rihanna? Here are the highlights so you can get angry at the injustice in the world all over again. Please note, Robyn F. is Rihanna’s real name.
“A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against he passenger window of the vehicle, causing an approximate one-inch raised circular contusion.”
“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 shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!'”
Pretty bad, huh? It continues.
The detective said “Robyn F.” then used her cell phone to call her personal assistant Jennifer Rosales, who did not answer.
“Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, ‘I’m on my way home. Make sure the police are there when I get there.’
“After Robyn F. faked the call, 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 continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to suffer a contusion on her left triceps (sic) that was approximately two inches in diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand.
“Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal assistant, Melissa Ford. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her hand and threw it out of the window onto an unknown street.
“Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular telephone sitting in his lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand and before she could make a call he placed her in a head lock with his right hand and continued to drive the vehicle with his left hand.
“Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle in front of 333 North June Street and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it.
“Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and arms. 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 and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet, causing several contusions.”
So yeah. Last night, Chris Brown won a Grammy Award. He dedicates it to all you lazy people who let him get away with a comeback.
