America's Sweetheart Chris Brown is quickly losing all that goodwill he's built up by not doing anything obnoxious in the past, say, week or so.
After TMZ reported earlier today that the L.A. City Attorney filed two criminal charges against the singer over a minor car accident last month, Brown took to his twitter page to refute the charges.
TMZ claimed that Brown "rear-ended a Mercedes and allegedly refused to fork over his driver's license number and gave bogus insurance info and then left the scene."
Brown, upset at seeing his good name dragged through the mud, claimed that there was no damage to either car and he did, in fact, exchange information with the other driver, which probably went something like:
"Can I have your name please, sir?"
"You know who I am!"
"I don't. Do you have a license?"
"Yeah. A license to do what I want."
It's not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
After referring to himself in the third person, which never makes you sound weird or obnoxious, Brown took on the Website of Record's "yellow journalism," noting that he WILL. NOT. STAND. for bullying (of any non-females) and that lawyers will be involved.
She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
Side note: Imagine a conversation between a lawyer for Chris Brown and a lawyer for TMZ.
Our perpetual victim/pop superstar did the only sensible thing he could: change his profile picture to the other person's car and include her license plate number, which will surely go unnoticed by Brown's rabid fanbase.
My profile pic is the pic I took of the persons car after "the hit and run". NO damage. Just a dirty car.once again, I gotta clear my name— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
Brown, who noted in the tweet below that he is somewhere between 19 and 24 years old (you're 24), tweeted that he is "work[ing] hard to be a better person." Somewhere, a 19-24-year-old is learning some serious life lessons.
I work my ass off to provide for my entire family. I've made mistakes in the past and have worked hard to be a better person.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
19-24 years of age. I don't have all the answers and you can't show me a person that age who has it figured out.We live and grow.Let me live— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
