After some people trashed Chris Brown and his Friday performance on the Today Show, the R&B singer tweeted this gem: “Its funny how many second chances mainstream America gives some of their white celebs (Charlie Sheen, kacey anthony, etc).”
Really Chris Brown?
The crowd of 18,000 at Brown’s performance broke all existing Today Show records, surpassing even the legions of little monsters who turned out for Lady Gaga last year. His tweet was a response to various Brown-haters who trashed the audience for supporting a “woman-beater,” as one angry blogette wrote.
Apparently Brown has not been keeping up with the news: last time we checked ‘Kacey’ topped America’s most hated list and Charlie Sheen was a Hollywood pariah jettisoned by even his most loyal goddesses.
The tweet was taken down soon after it was posted but, of course, not before millions got a hold of the tidbit. It was later replaced with a (non-racial) diatribe against the “haters” in which he ultimately proclaimed, “I keep my head high and my middle finger higher!”
His rant against mainstream America was soon followed by something of different genre completely: “2001: a space odyssey directed by Stanley Kubrick made in 1968. Best/ amazing scenes in it visually! Super dope!,” the singer tweeted Saturday.
