So before I get into my Kanye like rant that I am about to get into, here is the exchange between Alexander Gaskarth and Chris Brown after the Grammy Awards did a piece of domestic violence awareness.

I mean I believe that Alexander was just saying what every single person watching was thinking, right? Well maybe not every single person, but a decent amount of people. Why is Chris Brown allowed back at the Grammys? Why is he allowed be making music still? I understand that people think that all should be forgiven because Rihanna forgave him but it isn’t that simple. Chris Brown is a horrible person. I am ready for him for him to ask me about the pearly gates, but I don’t need to answer to that. What matters is what you do as a person while you still have time on this earth.

This is going to be a rant, please be prepared, you have been given warning.

Chris Brown is one of the worst celebrities I have ever witnessed in my 23 years on this planet. I don’t know if there have been worse before him, I am just saying from where I see it. I am sitting here watching as he is put in jail, taken out of jail, all of that shit. He is constantly in and out of trouble. He is throwing up gang signs, gun shots are ringing out while he is performing. He hasn’t learned.

A lot of people believe that he deserves to be forgiven, and I don’t think that. When you watch his apology video he doesn’t seem like he means it. Chris talks about how he respects women now but while he was away in rehab he threw a brick through his mom’s car window. He is constantly tweeting about his on and off girlfriend Karrueche Tran about how she is a whore, and other disgusting things.

I am not sure if people know this but Chris was basically banned from the Grammy’s for three years I believe since he wasn’t allowed to be near Rihanna for that long. The year he was allowed back the show let him perform twice, and he won a Grammy. What kind of message is that saying? It isn’t like he even really had to pay for these crimes.

I am on the same page as Alex though, what are we showing people if you can attend an award show that is opening up about domestic abuse, but have a famed abuser sitting in the fifth row and being nominated. Grammys this wasn’t a good look but I don’t think you guys care. Actually it is pretty obvious that you do not care at all.

Ray Rice, Cut By Ravens & Suspended By The NFL

I will say that the way that Roger Goodall the commissioner of the NFL treated this whole Ray Rice debacle was absolutely disgusting. He now has a lot off of his shoulders now that the Baltimore Ravens have released him, simply because not many teams would want someone with this kind of reputation on their team. Well maybe they would, I never thought that Michael Vick would step on a football field again either.

As many people now know there was more footage released from the punch that lead to Ray Rice driving his then fiancee (now wife) out of an elevator as she was unconscious due to his blow. It shows him hit her once, her going to hit back, then him punching her and her hitting first a railing then hitting the floor of the elevator. The video is a bit hard to watch due to the nature of it but if you are interested in seeing the video here is the link.

Now I have a few questions for people who are so supportive of Ray Rice getting kicked out of the NFL for a season. I completely support this decisions but maybe it is time to take a step back and look at other people who have done well nearly the same thing. By other people I mean one person, Chris Brown. Ever since Chris Brown beat Rihanna back in 2009 I haven’t been able to stand him. Understandably people say to move on because he and Rihanna got back together a number of times but that doesn’t make what happened okay, right? I mean Janay still married Ray Rice.

I guess I don’t understand how people can hate Ray Rice and still have Chris Brown as their man crush Monday. That makes absolutely no sense in my opinion.

Just think about that last statement and realize that even though a woman marries someone or dates someone who beats them doesn’t make the action okay.

So bravo to the Ravens for dumping this monster and shame on Roger Goodall for taking so long to give this player an actual punishment.
