This is a comment by Grey Aiken on the post “Chris Brown’s Twitter Deactivated After Tweet War with Comedy Writer“.
“Cheating on your partner is a moment of weakness. Beating the shit out of them is assault. He hasn’t paid for his crime. Anyone else would have been sent to prison for what he did. But more importantly, people still defend this asshole and support him. He should have been run out of show business, but people still support this dude as a cultural icon.
“You can obfuscate and try to prove how Chris Brown saying ‘eat a dick’ is the same as anyone else saying it. Chris Brown getting a tattoo on his neck that looks like Rihanna isn’t the same as anyone else getting it. Chris brown talking about sexual violence, especially to a woman, is not the same as anyone else doing it. Chris Brown going crazy on someone out of anger isn’t the same as anyone else doing it. Chris Brown intentionally talking about the woman he beat to within an inch of her life to win an argument is not excusable, in any context.
“It’s not about being provoked? Who cares if he was provoked? He’s supposed to be spending his time convincing us beyond any shadow of a doubt that he would never do something like he did to Rihanna ever again. Instead all he’s showing us is that he’s still a petulant child with a man’s body who’s not afraid of using any means at his disposal to hurt the people who challenge him.”
