Thankfully, Chris Brown hasn’t been in the news much lately.
Generally when you see Breezy’s name in a headline, it’s a sure sign that you’re face will soon be firmly planted in your palm.
And we’re sad to say this latest case is no exception.
Today, Rihanna celebrates her 30th birthday, an occasion that she’ll probably mark by smoking 31 blunts.
(The last one is because she lost count.)
Milestone birthdays can be times of poignant reflection, and obviously RiRi has a whole hell of a lot to be proud o.
But like most of us, there are some aspect of her past that she likely wishes would remain in the past.
And today, one of the ghosts of her early twenties swooped in to remind the Barbadian queen of a time she’d probably prefer to forget.
The photo above was posted on Instagram by Brown with a caption reading simply, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY @badgalriri.”
Needless to say, some fans weren’t thrilled to see the man who brutally assaulted Rihanna attempting to steal her birthday shine.
“This isn’t cute,” wrote one follower. “He put his hands on her. Grow up. Move on. Respect.”
“DELETE THIS!” another commented.
“I wouldn’t like to have my abuser show affection to me after getting my head bashed in to the floor,” a third remarked.
The consensus seemed to be that Chris remains a dumbass and should probably be considered as a first ballot inductee into the Dumbass Hall of Fame.
But believe it or not, for reasons that defy explanation and make us seriosly consider taking up residence in the deep woods, several miles from the nearest router, there are still folks out there who want Chris and Rihanna to get back together.
“Can y’all get married now like damn it’s long overdue!” wrote one eager fan.
“Aww him and Rihanna would have a cute baby,” observed one clueless user.
Yes, in just 9 short years, many seem to have forgotten just how brutal Chris’ attack truly was.
If you still had any hope left for humanity, it might be time to abandon it.
On the bright side, Chris doesn’t appear to have dated anyone seriously since he broke up with Karrueche Tran for the last time in 2016, so maybe he’s finally realized that he should be removed from the gene pool.
