Chris Brown Tweets 'Stop the Street Violence'
Just when it seems there's a shred of hope for Chris Brown, he manages to rip it down and stomp on it like a college girl to a 14-year-old's heart.
The singer recently took to a wall in Miami to slap up some graffiti art in the name of charity. E! Online reports that Breezy put up a totally respectable mural to generate support for Best Buddies International, a nonprofit that works with developmentally and intellectually disabled individuals.
But no sooner had he completed his masterpiece than he got on Twitter, and we all know what happens when Chris Brown engages in social media. Late into the evening on Wednesday, he tweeted the following:
Gotta stop the street violence! It's pointless..
We'll all recall, of course, that everyone starting loathing Chris Brown after he beat Rihanna while they were on their way to the Grammys in 2009, an incident that notably took place in the street.
Breezy deleted the tweet quickly.
