As y’all may remember, Monday was a difficult day for me. We learned that Chris Brown and his cronies had allegedly jumped my boo, Frank Ocean, and things got a little dark for me. But I’m fiiine now, y’all. I’m fine. I’m not gonna get Willow on Chris Brown‘s ass, as I’d threatened. I’m fine. Anyhoo, there were rumors going around that Frank planned to press charges against Chris for the fight (which resulted in Frank cutting his fingers– bad news for his upcoming Grammy performance), but Chris is now saying that he’s letting it go. Click inside to learn more.
Here’s the announcement of sorts that Frank posted on his tumblr:
AS A CHILD I THOUGHT IF SOMEONE JUMPED ME IT WOULD RESULT IN ME MURDERING OR MUTILATING A MAN. BUT AS A MAN I AM NOT A KILLER. I’M AN ARTIST AND A MODERN PERSON. I’LL CHOOSE SANITY. NO CRIMINAL CHARGES. NO CIVIL LAWSUIT. FORGIVENESS, ALBEIT DIFFICULT, IS WISDOM. PEACE, ALBEIT TRITE, IS WHAT I WANT IN MY SHORT LIFE. PEACE.
Okay. So I guess that’s that. Honestly? I agree with a lot of you who argued that Frank Ocean must have instigated the issue, if it was indeed over a parking lot, and if the fight indeed started when Chris was leaving the studio. Now don’t get me wrong– I am eternally Team Frank– and I also have a slightly clearer head than I had earlier this week. I do think it sounded like both parties were at fault.
What do you guys think? Is Frank right for dropping this whole thing, or is this another case where Chris gets away with committing a violent act?
