Care2 Update: Chris Brown has just been arrested in Paris, along with two other men, for aggravated rape and drug violations. It's time for the music industry, including his label RCA and streaming platforms like Spotify that continue to profit from his controversial persona, to STOP ignoring Brown's long history of assault and abuse — and DROP him today!
Singer Chris Brown was just caught in another physical abuse controversy after photos were released of him physically harassing a woman in Miami. The pictures clearly show him choking her while another woman attempted to intervene.
Brown's response to the situation was unapologetic and he continues to show no remorse for his actions. He jokes about the situation and claims he was just "playing". He also said he has, "no need to defend himself" and even thanks the media for publicity. His denial of the situation is really disturbing.
Brown is a dangerous man with a history of domestic violence and should not be joking about harassing women. In 2009, he brutally assaulted Rihanna and then never went to jail after he got away with a plea deal — sending a horrible message to young men and abuse survivors.
Rihanna, has even spoken up about the new photos, saying she felt let down by Brown. Telling Hollywood Life, "It's just a bad look — period." After everything they went through, she's disappointed that he'd even "play around like that."
Brown's dangerous history of violence against women has gone ignored for far too long. Brown is a threat to women and needs to be held accountable for his actions. Tell RCA Records to stop supporting an abuser and drop Chris Brown immediately.
