Chris Brown, once convicted for felony assault on Rihanna and who could give a shit about feeling any remorse for it, gives us another reason to think he’ll never stop being the ultimate fucking douchenozzle.
This is actually a fair point. Society has rewarded him for what is undoubtedly bad behavior without actually punishing it suitably…sending messages either intentionally or otherwise that as a culture, we care more when nipple slips happen during the Super Bowl as entertainment consumers than when a man beats his girlfriend so badly she’s unrecognizable. Its deplorable behavior that we’re so disconnected about that we’d rather be outraged at M.I.A giving the finger than rampant sexism and misogyny. It speaks volumes about where we are as a society…and where we are not.
