Chris Brown’s Graffiti – Has He Done Anything Wrong?
The rapper-cum-socialite-criminal annoys people with his little pictures
With all of Chris Brown’s misdemeanours, it’s easy just to think, “what’s he done now?” and assume his guilt. But are his graffiti walls really against the law or are they just a bit tasteless?
Turns out, they’re fully against the law, and the former boyfriend of Rihanna is facing a fine, not that it’s going to really put too much of a dent in his finances. "There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall — big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to," Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, explained. "I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change. But hopefully and maybe, he'll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor," Negri told the Times. "We're happy to have him — if he just tones it down." Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos said the musician is not backing down; he’s been given 30 days to get if off his walls, but has no plans to do so whatsoever. "They are trying to suspend the First Amendment," Geragos says.
Did anyone really expect Brown to listen to the thoughts of his community and neighbours and act with everyone’s best interests at heart? Come on, this is Chris Brown! The 13-year-old boy inside a man’s body is getting things his own way.
Brown's graffiti... not even that good
