Aren’t we all just tired of seeing Chris Brown make headlines? The American Idol guest star is always looking to stir up drama. After his recent are-they-or-aren’t-they drama with Rihanna, and his positive test for pot, we’d all hoped he’d just lay low for awhile. We got our hopes up, and here he is again. It seems that Chris decided that dressing up as a terrorist for Halloween was completely acceptable.
Chris Brown attended Rihanna’s Halloween party yesterday at Greystone Manor outfitted with a fake beard, wearing a turban, tunic, and with a rifle (hopefully fake). He also had rounds of ammo draped over his body. Chris took a group shot with four of his buddies who were similarly outfitted. He Instagrammed the picture, and tweeted, “Ain’t nobody F–king wit my clique!!! #ohb”. In the picture he’s holding a rifle over his head with a nefarious gaze at the camera.
Twitter blew up with negativity regarding the costume Chris wore. One twitter user, MyGhettoElectro, wrote, “My nationality is not like that and my nationality is not a costume for you to wear @chrisbrown how disrespectful.” We all know that Chris Brown isn’t really a name synonymous with non-violence and peace, but I definitely think it was inappropriate. There are a few things that you just don’t dress up as, and that one’s probably in the top 3. As someone who has a following such as Chris, you have a responsibility that comes with that-it’s the price you pay. To wear a costume that evokes what could be hurtful memories for others is downright rude!
Brown even tweeted regarding his costume, saying “It’s Halloween! Have Fun. And if someone says something u don’t like just think of it as a Fart! #sh*t.” His mom also showed her support for her son by tweeting “HALLOWEEN IS FOR FUN NOTHING MORE THAN JUST FUN. GET A LIFE PLEASE.” Because typing in caps lock typing means it’s totally correct, obviously.
What do you think of Chris’s costume? Do you think it was appropriate?
