Three years after Chris Brown’s infamous altercation with his former flame Rihanna, he remains a controversial figure in the music world. Following his performance at the Grammys, some prominent entertainers like Miranda Lambert and Michelle Branch spoke out, criticizing the warm reception he received. Now Chris Brown is lashing back. Huffington Post reports:
In the wake of Whitney Houston’s passing, Chris Brown avoided intense media scrutiny surrounding his return to the Grammy Awards. As he bounced around on stage and picked up the award for Best R&B Album, it was also the three-year anniversary of Brown’s assault on then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
While there were some insensitive fans who trivialized domestic violence and seemed to welcome a punch in the face from Brown, others were not so happy to see him welcomed back into the spotlight or awarded for anything.
Celebrities like Miranda Lambert, Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Eric Stonestreet expressed their dismay at seeing Brown honored.
Actor Wil Wheaton perhaps said it best when he tweeted, “Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rihanna should read the police report on exactly what he did.”
