Chris Brown’s Grammy Performance — Outrage Continues

If we have to pay for our sins for the rest of our lives, then we’re all screwed. When Chris Brown performed at the Grammys everyone was outraged, including country star Miranda Lambert who tweeted, “Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl … Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen.” Though I have my doubts about his contrition, there’s one thing I know for sure — eternal punishment will halt reform. His physical abuse of Rihanna is certainly deplorable. And he unequivocally deserves to be punished. But when does it end? When is enough, enough? When is the man allowed to move on with his life and continue working? What if he laid brick for a living? Should we call his boss demand he be fired? This is his job. This is how he makes his living. If he’s contrite, and if he’s done the personal work to ensure he doesn’t make the same mistake twice, then he deserves to be forgiven.

  1. Yeah, I put a similar comment on Facebook last week.  Dr. Dre actually beat a woman at one of these awards shows one time and you never hear shit about that. And he wasn’t even dating her!  That was just straight up assault.  

  2. I agree, people should be forgiven and allowed to move on.  However, his Twitter response of “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF!” doesn’t sound very contrite to me.  Of course, in true Hollywood fashion, he says he wasn’t the one who posted it, and it’s been taken down and replaced with something more respectful.
