Chris Brown has shared a string of preposterously unprogressive opinions about the Kehlani/Partynextdoor news story that broke on Monday (Mar. 28) when Partynextdoor implied in an Instagram post that Kehlani had cheated on her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving, with him. Following the news, Kehlani posted a photo from a hospital bed and let the world know that she had attempted suicide.
This is how Chris Brown reacted on Twitter:
Girls be mad at a nigga for fucking around wit bitches but her DMs got more names then the Declaration of Independence. #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) March 30, 2016
They look like they have stank sex!!!!😭— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) March 30, 2016
There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing shit for sympathy so them comments under your pics don't look so bad— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) March 30, 2016
OK IM DONE. Guess she gone have to watch the games from a real "box" now. "THE TELEVISION" #OHB "OUTTA HERE BIH"— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) March 30, 2016
Obviously the most egregious sentence here is "There is no attempting suicide," a bafflingly short-sighted declaration. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, for every suicide, there are 25 attempts. In his defense of his pal Kyrie Irving, Brown has completely disregarded an important mental health issue and stated that, if you attempt suicide, you are selfish or manipulative.
"No one was cheated on and I’m not a bad person," Kehlani wrote on Instagram in her caption about her suicide attempt, in which she admitted, "I wanted to leave this Earth." Instead of respect the enormity of such a statement, Brown has focused on a perceived love triangle and jumped to conclusions in defense of Irving. Without focusing on Brown's past transgressions, his slamming of Kehlani is wildly misogynistic.
Speaking of which, some female artists have already started rallying against Brown's vile Twitter spree:
Chris brown is TRAAASSHHHHH— Zara Larsson (@zaralarsson) March 30, 2016
Mocking someone's suicide attempt is grotesque. So is beating a woman. Fuck Chris Brown. I'm out ✌🏼️— Best Coast (@BestCoast) March 30, 2016
When has Chris Brown been anything but an ignorant fuck boy? Maybe in the beginning before we knew anything about him. Step down, asshole.— ✦ Ryn Weaver ✦ (@RynWeaver) March 30, 2016
And Zendaya, whose current single "Something New" features Brown, appears to have unfollowed the R&B star on Twitter. For Brown, sadly, this type of dumbfounding Twitter spree is nothing new.
