Chris Brown Blasts Critics Who ‘Still Hate Him’ Over 2009 Rihanna Incident
A day after Chloe Bailey was slammed in the media for collaborating with Chris Brown on an upcoming song called “How Does It Feel,” Brown took to Instagram to vent against those who continue to attack him for his teenage assault of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
In 2009, he pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge, replacing what would otherwise be a prison sentence for probation and six months of community service. His abuse of Rihanna the night before the Grammys drew the national spotlight as photos surfaced of the “Diamonds” singer with a busted lip, bruised face and swollen eyes.
Brown, now 33, insists that he is a changed person and urges others to stop continuing the “narrative.”
In a 2012 interview with Oprah, Rihanna said that that night, the man she knew had completely changed in an instant, following a heated argument that led to brutal violence. She said that she lost her best friend, telling Oprah that all she wanted was for the R&B singer to get the mental health help he needs.
“If yall still hate me for a mistake I made as a 17-year-old please kiss my whole entire a–! Im f—ing 33!” he wrote in a series of Instagram stories in response to critics who continue to remind him of his legacy of assault. “You weird [people are] the same ones that tune in every week to see Blueface and Chrisean beat the fuck out each other in front the world but that’s ok? It’s entertainment? All yall can suck my d— disrespectfully.”
Brown then proceeded to criticize the white male artists who dodge cancel culture despite dating underage women, spreading sexually-transmitted diseases and committing domestic violence.
