Has The Chris Brown Bashing Gone Too Far?

This is coming from someone who was all for Chris Brown receiving severe punishment (and therapy) for the crime he committed against Rihanna last year.

I was a big fan of both him and Rihanna, especially as the adorable couple they once were…

But his violent act was was uncalled for, extreme and totally inexcusable.  I quickly developed a really bad taste in my mouth when it came to Chris Brown.

I realized however, that he is very young and has so far lived a lifestyle that the common 20 year-old would not be able to relate to. On top of that, he experienced domestic violence in his own home against his mother.

Just as I was developing a soft spot for Chris, he came out with those cocky videos calling people “haters” and insisting he’s not a monster.

Things like that made me step back again and think, “has he not learned anything from this?”.

And then I got a taste of the type of verbal abuse Chris has been experiencing for the past year when I read Perez Hilton‘s comments on Twitter the other day.

Chris had previously deleted his Twitter account, after ranting about retailers “blackballing” his latest album, Graffiti, but he came back to the popular social networking site.

In case you missed it, check out the words exchanged between Perez and Chris yesterday:

Of course Perez is referring to when Chris begged his fans to help bring back his career last week:

“Some radio stations aren’t playing my records. They’re not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to. But it’s on the fans…It’s in your power to bring me back.

It won’t be possible for me to be an artist if I don’t have support from people who give me an artist outlet. I can’t be an underground mixtape artist”.

With the media, celebrities and general public continuously throwing their disgust for Chris in his face over a year later, along radio stations not wanting to play his songs, it has to be taking a toll on him emotionally – even with his band of loyal supporters.

Do you think he is deserving of this for as long as it goes, or is enough enough?

And do you think Chris can do anything more to help win fans back?
