Chris Brown and Drake Fight Over Rihanna, Anatomy of a Publicity Stunt


Chris Beat her Down Brown still can't get the human luge out his system...

TMZ reports that Brown and his entourage butted heads with the "Take Care" singer at New York nightclub W.i.P. (where Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo and Fablolous were also partying). Apparently it went down like this: Brown sent a bottle of champagne over to Drake's table. The YMCMB rapper and his party then came over and sparked an argument over Rihanna (with whom he was once romantically linked), then punched Brown in the face and threw the bottle at him. Sending champage to a table is an insult now?

A photo posted by GossipCop shows that Brown's bodyguard, Big Pat, was badly injured at the scene. A total of five people were injured at the nightclub, according to the NYPD, who arrived after receiving a call between 4am and 5am; police are currently investigating the incident though no arrests have been made. Both Drake and Brown had left the club by the time police arrived. Brown also took to his Twitter page to post a photo of the laceration on his chin (which he indicated came from a bottle) and revealing messages, like "How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!" and "Ok! N****s stand behind security! Ok! U don't pay them enough."

Brown has since deleted the messages on his Twitter page, including the photo of his injury, but you can view a screenshot of both here.

Well Chris, if Drake fights like a girl, in your book that means you can hit him, right? Didn't they both just call Rihanna a whore two weeks ago and now they are supposedly fighting over her? Is it finally possible for the world to heal from this breakup? I literally have mourned for the last half second. When will this nightmare of incompetence, violence and bad music come to an end? What is it about this fake twitter thug that makes men, or little talentless thugs act so idiotic? Maybe it's nothing more than a manufactured controversy to aid Brown in future album sales.

This reflection of negative behavior from a small segment of the Black population has been held up as typical. It is NOT typical but is perceived to be and that is by design. I have learned that the news media is interested "if it bleeds it leads" and know this firsthand. These rich and famous "thugs", hoodlums or whatever appropriate adjective will suffice reached their status from those with deep pockets who profit off of them. These thugs are the new court jesters, Baffoons, and Minstrels which degrade an entire group. To the delight of those who promote this kind of behavior and the segment of the populace which has an appetite for it, this kind of coverage reflects the incidious racism which has permeated America for decades. Why are the Blacks of the intelligentsia who have gone to college, worked hard and attained a Middle Class or better status basically ignored? I'll give you one guess. Chris must be launching a look at me tour for his upcoming album.
