We have no problem when people with no talent become famous anymore. I mean, we’ve let Kristen Stewart continue to make movies despite the fact that she can’t emote her face beyond her “I don’t give a fuck” stare, but we just can’t help but wonder… How the fuck is Chris Brown still famous?
The ‘singer’ (and we’re using that term as loosely as possible) was asked about the rising openly bisexual R&B favorite Frank Ocean, to which he simply responded with: “No homo.”
No homo? Really, Chris Brown? No homo? That’s what you have to say when someone asks you about arguably the most talented R&B act to emerge in the new millennium? Good to see that his anger management classes have taught him to filter his slanderous comments.
This isn’t the first time that Brown has used derogatory terms towards members of the LGBT community. After beating up Rihanna back in 2010, he had several extremely public outbursts that ended with him using words like ‘gay’ and ‘faggot’ in demeaning ways. His latest “No homo” comment doesn’t come as a surprise when his past is taken into consideration, but it is a surprise that this will likely be yet another offense that his fans will sweep under the rug.
In the past three years, Brown has been criminally charged with the physical abuse of a woman, has thrown a chair through a window at Good Morning America after getting frustrated with a question he was asked, started a brawl that caused nearly $5 million in damages in a New York club, has performed at the Grammys, and has had a platinum selling album. There’s something a little off with this, isn’t there?
Brown fans, we only have one way to describe how we feel about your continuing support of the kid:
