Chris Brown Puts His Foot in His Mouth (Again)

The detainment of someone who is working with the underprivileged youth in his community is not a joke.

February 3rd was more than just the day when millions of Americans gathered around their television to watch grown men in tight pants throw a ball over a line and yell touchdown!

It was also the day that rapper 21 Savage made headlines. Savage, whose legal name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on charges that he is a citizen of the United Kingdom and has been living in the United States illegally.

Abraham-Joseph’s parents brought him to the U.S. when he was just seven and has since lived in Atlanta, Ga. His family overstayed their visas, however he applied for a U Visa in 2017, which is meant for crime victims.

Is it a coincidence that the rapper was detained just a few days after his performance of his recent single “A Lot” on The Tonight Show? He added a new verse, “Been through some things but I can’t imagine my kids stuck at the border / Flint still need water / People was innocent, couldn’t get lawyers.”

The news resulted in memes and jokes all over Twitter and Instagram, which in fact were not funny at all. Chris Brown was one of the people to make a joke about Abraham-Joseph on his Instagram account.

Many artists did not appreciate him poking fun at the situation, and Offset from Migos called him corny. Brown always has something to say to people over social media when they respond to him in ways he doesn’t like, and this time wasn’t any different.

Brown posted a picture of himself on Instagram captioning it in all caps with a pointless rant telling the Migos member to come to him as a man and to find him on the streets to address the issue.

Just a few days after Brown posted the picture, he changed his lengthy caption to three emojis. Maybe he realized how childish he looked. It’s gotten very annoying to read headlines about Brown going off on another person. It’s not newsworthy, it’s childish.

You would think that by now in his career he would learn how to control his anger and be mature, but I guess you really can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

The detainment of someone who is working with the underprivileged youth in his community is not a joke. No one being deported from this country is a joke. No matter how much money you have or how high your status gets, no one is safe in the state this country is currently in.
