The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: The Chris Brown Neck Tattoo Meme
Chris Brown’s new NECK TATTOO (right) was revealed today, and, uh, it is an image of a battered woman. OH BOY, THERE IS REALLY ONLY SO MUCH YOU CAN HANDLE IN THIS LIFE. Like, it goes 100% without saying that Chris Brown is a fucking piece of shit garbage monster. The fact that he still has a highly lucrative and successful career is shameful. Yes, there should be (and totally is) a separation between the artist’s work and the artist’s personal life, but we are talking about a largely pre-fabricated pop construct anyway that has very little to do with how well Chris Brown sings and/or dances and is highly dependent on the music industry’s hit & publicity machine, so his career is in many respects represents the corporate sponsorship of his unacceptable, violent, misogynistic behavior. It’s gross! But this is just BEYOND. This is the dude straight letting the world know that he is one of the absolute worst people on Earth. Forever! Permanently! It was already weird when he was photographed wearing that $300,000 bejeweled “Whoops!” chain, but this? THIS?! Holy moly. For the most part I do believe that there are lots of nice things in this world, and that human beings have an extraordinary capacity for kindness and generosity and overall good. But then sometimes you are reminded that they also really don’t. Unbelievable. Anyway, TheBestRooftalkEver has taken to photoshopping other people’s “mistakes” as neck tattoos. Now you do that.
Winner will receive special placement in Monsters’ Ball. Cool ink, bro!
