I felt some type of way about this story. Don’t get me wrong I salute anyone spreading holiday cheer to those who need it most. These days we need all the good vibes we can get. However, I still had to hit the pause button when I read Chris Brown surprised a domestic violence victim with a new whip.
The “Back to Sleep” singer popped up at the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood on Saturday to play Santa to Jessica Roncalli and her three kids. Since a Honda can’t fit under a Christmas tree he tossed her the keys then and there. Along with some gifts for the kids. Then recapped his good deed on Instagram. Writing…
I’ve been very fortunate and blessed with so much in my life and I always thought that it was supposed to be that way. I was selfish, arrogant, and cold hearted. I’m able to bless and inspire so many others and I realize that now. This woman has delt with domestic abuse through her life and her 3 wonderful children had to experience that. I see myself when I looked into their eyes. The amount of strength this woman has is remarkable. I hope I could make their Christmas a great one. I hope the kids love all the toys and things I got for them. And for moms. I hope I could put a smile on this family’s face.
Rafael_the_grand had this take in the comment section, “That is so nice that you got her a new car due to her domestic abuse background,you know kinda like when u beat Rhianna. Did you get her an “im sorry honda” aswell????” Well…
Listen, shade aside it’s worth mentioning that a female abuser rewarding a domestic violence victim is kinda weird. On so many levels. It’s like he purposely put a target on his back knowing his checkered past with violence towards women would welcome shots. Yes, I sympathize with Chris Brown being a victim himself given that he watched his own mother be abused by his stepdad. Thus, repeating the cycle of domestic abuse that’s being proven can occur.
Yet, I’m baffled that he would think we have amnesia towards his post-Rihanna despicable acts like stalking ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. And treat his good deed like another one to cross off his list.
Or maybe it’s just another coat of paint on his rehab image project since becoming a Daddy to daughter Royalty. Setting a more positive example for her to look up too. After all he has apologized to exes Rihanna and Karrueche for past mistakes.
The question is are we ready to forgive him?
