There are always people who try to make light of serious situations with inappropriate jokes but some of C Breezy’s fans were going overtime for their boy last night.
After seeing Chris Brown make his comeback—if you can call it that—at the Grammys last night, not one, two, or even a few women referenced the domestic violence case that got him banned from the show three years go, but several called attention to the incident, excusing it because of his sex appeal on stage.
Buzzfeed caught whiff of the foolishness and published 25 Extremely Upsetting Reactions to Chris Brown at the Grammys, and all of the Tweets went a little something like this:
I’d let Chris Brown beat me up anytime 🙂 #womanbeater
Chris Brown Please Beat Me 🙂
I don’t know why Rihanna complained, Chris Brown could beat me up anytime he wanted to.
Ok I’d let Chris Brown punch me in the face
On one hand, I doubt any of these woman really means what she says, on the other, domestic violence is nothing to play with and it’s behavior that’s easily excused by an apology, a promise never to do it again, love, and in this case, good looks.
Despite whatever shock reaction or careless ploy for attention the women who sent these tweets were hoping to get, you can’t help but question the message they’re sending to men about it being OK to be violent toward women, and the blatant disregard for what Rihanna went through, as though she should have been OK with being attacked that night. If any of these girls had ever come close to being in a situation like that, they wouldn’t be asking for it so cavalierly. One can only hope they’re never in that predicament and certainly wouldn’t react the way they say they would.
What do you think about the way women make light of Chris Brown’s domestic violence past? Is there a way to forgive him without making light of the circumstances?
