How Many Times Should We Forgive Chris Brown for His Outbursts?Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 2:25 pm.
Someone please put a muzzle on Chris Brown! As a fan or his art, I want to get past his personal character mishaps, believe his “I’m sorrys” and give him the benefit of the doubt that everyone makes mistakes….and get on to recognizing him for his music and dance (because, hate him or love him he’s still got it!) but he makes it hard.
The latest: Chris was overheard shouting anti-gay slurs during a recent pickup basketball game at 24 Hour Fitness center in Los Angeles. Chris reportedly repulsed onlookers when a casual pickup game turned competitive. “He got really ticked off when things didn’t go his way saying, ‘That’s gay!’ and ‘You’re a fa–ot a–!’ to the other players,” an eyewitness told Star.
This wouldn’t be the first time Chris has been caught making homophobic comments. Last December, he Tweeted an apology after calling Raz-B a “Di—in da booty a– lil boy” (among other ridiculous things) when the ex-B2K member provoked him and made comments about him disrespecting women. The offending Tweets were taken down and he was apologetic, of course, after the fact.
In June, Brown sparked outrage when he shouted at a group of cameramen who he suspected had alerted a parking attendant to his illegally parked car. According to TMZ, Brown raged: “Y’all ni–as is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y’all ni–as is gay.” Afterward he apologized again, and Tweeted, “I have total respect for Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it. #REALS—T.” But does he?
Yes, everyone makes mistakes and everyone’s a work in progress and it’s clear that Chris Brown is still working through some of his anger issues. But you just can’t be surprised or play victim when people call you out.
