What could Chris possibly be suggesting with this vaguely offensive, though artistically impressive, painting?
Remember all those Bible stories where Jesus tells his followers to go out and attack people? We don’t either, which is why it’s more than a little puzzling why Chris Brown would post a painting of Jesus on Jan. 28, saying, “Painting the way I feel today,” shortly after his highly publicized brawl with singer Frank Ocean. He also tweeted, “Focus on what matters,” which is exactly what we’re doing: focusing on Chris’ history of violence.
Both the tweet and the Instagrammed painting have since been removed by Chris, but because this is the internet, neither will ever really disappear.
So what could Chris’ curious (slash offensive) tweet actually mean? Like most things Chris says and/or does, the logic behind it will likely remain a mystery — if it exists at all — but that won’t stop us from speculating. Let’s just hope Chris isn’t actually suggesting he’s a martyr, as the public is clearly siding with Frank.
Chris Brown & Frank Ocean’s Public Brawl
Chris, Frank and their respective entourages were involved in a scuffle outside a Los Angeles recording studio Jan. 27, and while it’s still unclear exactly who started the fight, things are not looking up for Chris.
“West Hollywood Station deputies are investigating allegations that Chris Brown assaulted an unnamed victim,” reads a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department. “Deputies responded to a call of six males fighting. … Upon their arrival, deputies talked to witnesses who stated that Chris Brown and the victim were involved in an altercation over a parking space. The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim. After a brief fight, the parties were separated. Chris Brown and his entourage left the location prior to the arrival of deputies.”
A source close to the situation told HollywoodLife.com that Chris’ entourage started the fight by hurling homophobic slurs at Frank, while another report suggests Frank started the fight by insulting Rihanna.
Regardless, it’s worth noting that Chris is still on probation, following his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He was sentenced to five years, and has one year remaining.
