This is a child, going true so much hate and still finding the strenght to smile and live on and share love and you think people will not rise up to defend him. If people do not, God will raise stones or animals to defend him. We watched MJ dies due to undue media propagand and bad press, it will not happens with any other innocent young man making an honest living for himself. Enough is enough, the media does not have to do bad press alone. We need to reduce the hate in the world, that is why there is so much war, random shooting and killing. SHARE MORE LOVE MEDIAS AND BLOGGERS.

It is offensive becuase Chris is wearing it, Rob Pattinson or they other favored celeb nobody care. For me, I thought he looked really handsome and Halloween is for dress up and fun, could not understand the media’s overreaction but of cause it is Chris and anything Chris is opportunity for bad press. Media keep up the propagand cos it is not working. You are only enduring people like me who would never have looked 2ice at him, now take up his cause and fight back.

Well my response to YOU now, is that it doesn’t freaking matter
It’s Halloween. And you don’t find it offensive when others wear
Obama mask, or how the costumes now and days are to stereo
Typical. As a Chris brown fan I feel you have nothing better to do
But whine about how you didn’t enjoy your Halloween :)

Don’t take it to heart just calling out the obvious. It is the internet

Or maybe those people are simply blinded by hatred for Chris. I deplore this wanker, but i don’t allow my detestation for him to blinker me.

Exactly! I’m no Chris Brown fan but i don’t see what’s the big issue with the costume? Besides, like you said, Chris and his mob were jusy having fun! At the very most, Chris was seeking attention, nothing more. So why take it so hard? Some people are just so serious and obsessed with political correctness it’s silly!

Some things you just don’t make fun of because it could come back to haunt you. The man has no sense anyway. Great singer, but no common sense.

I don’t get it …
Do people not get what you do on Halloween? You dress up…you make fun of things…you act silly…you have FUN.

It’s one thing to be mad about something horrific a person did. Fine. If you don’t want to let go of the past thats your business. But when you nit pick at EVERYTHING???? It’s getting old now…

CBreezy dressed up as an Arab….it was HALLOWEEN! It was funny! Why does no one jump down Sacha Baron Cohen or Adam Sandler’s throats for playing Arabs? Cuz’ it was comedy right? That’s what I thought….

Rih dressed up as weed…IT WAS HALLOWEEN! She looked good and you know you wanted to take a puff…

Just saying. You know how many men Black/mix men Dress up as our Black President Barack Obama? They wear mask’s, and mock him about how he talks, and acts. SNL Late night shows..for the past 4 years, yet we laugh, and think nothing of it. Because it’s a joke. So when Chris Brown wear an costume for Halloween people want to take an offence? C’mon son..Stop being punks.

It’s only poor choice because it was Chris. I wonder if you felt the same about Prince Harry dressing up as a Nazi a few years ago was just as offensive, but I guess people have amnesia from that…

I;m aware of Prince Harry dressing up as a Nazi and honestly, while the costume may be tacky, i didn’t get too worked up about it. Likewise, while i desise Chris, i don’t see the need to get mad at him over a mere Halloween costume. He’s not the first person to dress up as a terrorist for Hallwoeen anyway. Lost of people, from celebs to sports stars to you average joes have dressed up as Osama bin Laden and other terrorsits to Halloween bashes and parades all over the US and the world for the past years. Heck, i bet even soldiersm Marines and police offiicers have done that! It’s all for fun, so just chill, OK?

The more I think about it the more torn I am regarding this subject.
At first glance, its insensitive and irresponsible, but the more I think about it
should we also frown on costumes, of vampires, devils, seriel killers, etc.
I definitely think it was a poor choice, they could have gone as the avengers, or
any number of group costumes, but to over analyze a halloween costume, nah
I’m already over it. I lost a friend in 9/11 and I am not offended by the costume,
just disappointed in his choice as the real monsters are the terrorist not the
costume wearers poking fun at them. Thats it

Not all MIddle Eastern men are terrorists. HE could of just been dressed in MIddle eastern clothes.But you guys are the ones saying that they look like terrorists. If HL would of said that is was disgraceful because of the war, okay, I see why. But you guys are saying that if you are dressed like a Middle eastern, you are a terrorist.
9/11 was a tragedy, yes, but are you seriously blaming the whole of the middle east?

I want him to keep messing up, then eventually people will stop buying his records like they should have when they first realised he was a douchebag.

This is disgraceful and a show of disrespect to all those poor, innocent souls that we lost on 9/11! Shame on you Chris Brown for being so insensitive and immature! I hope your fans realize soon what a loser you are!

This is officially the last web post I will read on this subject. Chris doesn’t have to be careful with his Halloween costume because of his past transgressions. Halloween is fun and should not require serious thought. The costume was funny. The devil is said to be responsible for darn near every bad thing in the world yet it is perfectly fine to dress up as the devil. And I bet a million dollars he didn’t create the idea. Him and his friends probably went to the costume store and saw them there and wanted them. Are these websites going to go after the manufacturers and retailers who made and sold the costumes? GTFOH

Music Lover: Your comment is very ignorant. If you had lost any of your loved ones or friends on 9/11 you would not make such careless remarks. Halloween is about FUN, yes, but one should also show respect to the thousands that lost their lives on that dreadful, awful day. We must never forget, but never relive it, not ever, not for fun and certainly not for Halloween either!!

@Elle, i do understand where you’re coming from, but it’s a freaking COSTUME!!! I bet Chris and his pals didn;t actually design the costumes, but nought it from some relatialer. IAdmittedly, the costume is extremely offensive and it’s downright distatseful of Chris and his buddies to wear that, and Chris is a horrible individual, but c;mon, if you wanna go after him why not go after the manaufacturers of such costumes and retailers who sell them??
