Other than the legions of teenage girls who refer to themselves as “Team Breezy” and troll the internet verbally attacking anyone who dare say anything against their idol, Chris Brown hasn’t done very well when it comes to convincing the public that he is a decent human being.
Ever since his physical attack against then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in February of 2009, Chris Brown has become known in the media for his multiple violent outbursts and lashing out against anyone who has a bad word to say about him via Twitter like a petulant toddler.
It seems almost comical that someone who has sunk so low in the collective eye of the public wouldn’t be making more of an attempt to prove themselves as anything but the monster that they originally came across as. Instead, it seems as if Chris Brown has been rebelling against the world ever since, showing us just how much he doesn’t care.

And what do you know, he’s successfully done it again. This week, Chris stepped out with a new tattoo prominently displayed on his neck. Normal enough, sure… except for the striking likeness that it holds to a certain police evidence photo showcasing the multiple lacerations and contusions of none other than Rihanna from that fateful February night. The resemblance is uncanny, but naturally, as soon as the media started reporting on it, Chris Brown’s camp called bullshit.
“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” his rep said. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”
Hmmmm. Somehow, I fail to believe that in his entire quest for this tattoo — from idea, to conception, to sketch, to execution — not one person mentioned the fact that it looked like a carbon copy of that very photo that circulated so fervently around the blogosphere. Much as I do with everything having to do with Chris Brown, I call bullshit. But you be the judge.
