Chris Brown To Guest On Black-ish

The last we heard, Chris Brown was in the midst of a drug-fueled downward spiral. But apparently, he’s pulling himself out of it long enough to appear in an episode of Black-ish. Entertainment Weekly reports that Brown will guest star on next week’s episode of the show, playing a popular rapper named Rich Youngsta. According to ABC’s episode synopsis, “Dre is excited about doing a campaign with a popular rap star but becomes conflicted when Bow and Ruby provide feedback suggesting it plays on stereotypes. Meanwhile, Bow is determined to get the family to stop eating so much take-out food, but realizes the family may be too accustomed to eating whatever they want.” Black-ish has a history of celebrity guest stars, but Brown is by far the most controversial figure to “grace” the show with his presence.
