Chris Brown rants against ‘racist’ D.A., puts ‘the LAW ... last’
Chris Brown’s latest Twitter rant isn’t going to earn him any friends in the district attorney’s office, which he called “racist” while appearing to proclaim his disdain for the law.
Brown was tagged last week with an additional 1,000 hours of community service — that’s 125 days, to be done within a year — related to his five-year probation for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. The additional hours were a result of prosecutors’ contention that the hip-hop star had fudged the reporting on service hours allegedly performed in Brown’s home state of Virginia.
His probation, recently revoked because of a hit-and-run charge that was ultimately dropped, was reinstated.
Breezy wrote, in a series of profane tweets, that he’d “done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist ass crying to the judge that I didn’t do it. ... the SYSTEM! How about y’all take care of all the homeless kids and families on skid row. Promote helping people that are really [messed] up in your city!
“Family first! The LAW...last.
“I paint pics of monsters because its a reflection of u ... and this ... system!”
Brown recently painted, and then painted over, a wall outside his Hollywood Hills home with graffiti-style monsters, following it up with the same sort of artwork on a $90,000 Porsche Panamera. Earlier this week he canceled four summer shows in Canada because of health issues and the added community service.
For that matter, so is Rihanna.
