Chris Brown Wildly Popular With The High School Set

March 19th, 2009 // 9 Comments

The New York Times printed a rather disturbing article yesterday revealing what some high schoolers think about the Chris Brown/Rihanna fiasco.

According to the paper, Chris Brown can do no wrong in the eyes of the under-18 set. In fact, many students had sympathy for him and instead blamed Rihanna for the Feb. 8 scuffle, which may leave Chris a convicted felon.

“She probably made him mad for him to react like that,” said one ninth grader in Hostos-Lincoln Academy in the Bronx. “You know, like, bring it on?”

They also don’t think he should be taken to court since Rihanna took him back. We knew those paparazzi-leaked jet-skiing photos were a Brown publicity stunt.

“She probably feels bad that it was her fault, so she took him back…I don’t think he’ll hit her like that again,” said another student.

In fact, according to recent survey of 200 teenagers by the Boston Public Health Commission,
46 percent said Rihanna was responsible for what happened; 52 percent
said both bore responsibility.

Wowza. We are speechless.

    Education…education…education… Obviously, these kids know nothing about the cycle of domestic violence and all the psychological factors that go with it.

    Around these parts (Southern Nevada), Chris Brown is a low-down dirty rat and the “under-18 set” are “dunzo” with him.

    On the other hand, they don’t think much of Rhianna now either, now that she has taken him back.

    He’s a pig, she’s an idiot, is pretty much the consensus. Moving on…

  3. rihanna ...ok

    Neither does Rihanna have any education either!! Or she would
    of made a public statement of
    her injuries and how she is going
    back to her old life style..

    Just goes to show you how completely idiotic teenagers can be.

    Think he grinned like that while he hit her? Lock, him, up.

    These kids are no different from the majority of adults. Just look at the comments above.

    In no way did Rihanna deserved what happened to her, but for those of you who do not know Rihanna’s past physical abusive personality then stop talking bad about Chris. Rihanna has been known as a teenager to beat up on her brother and even once busted a bottle across one of his head. I’m sure it was nothing but sibling rivalry, but to take it to that length is just crazy. Her mother was very upset with her and it left a scar on her brother’s forehead to this day. So, we only hear her side because that’s all everyone wants to hear. Poor innocent Rihanna. Well, let me tell you, if she had a past like that in which she admitted she always got into fist fights with her brother then you have to imagine what exactly happened first when Rihanna saw the infamous text message on Chris’ phone. Would home girl fly into a rage and smash a fist into his face while he was driving? I doubt Chris had the almight power to fight her with one hand while she was oh so helpless as he was driving. One handed fighting that can do so much damage that she couldn’t fight back? Puh-lease! You know that girl was throwing punches like mad and what could he do but defend himself? And then finally go into a rage over the thought that someone he loved decided to beat up on him. Especially after she threw the keys. He even left her with the car and the keys and footed the walk away from her after he did the damage. I’m no saint and unfortunately I have learned that I can test the saintliest of patience to fly into a rage. I try not to use that power for evil and didn’t even know I had the capability to do so. I can push the buttons on my dad and lots of other males if they piss me off without laying a finger on them.

    I am a victim of domestic/sexual abuse from my ex-husband and I can tell you from experience that nothing you can do deserves what she got. It never gets better either. The man might repent for a while and promise to never do it again but it is a lie and will happen over and over and over again until she leaves him for good.

    Teenagers that say what they did in the survery are showing thier immaturity and lack of experience, they also need to be educated on real life a little better. Just because he is famous and has a PR team trying to make him look good does not excuse him from the crime. As for her taking him back, we do not know what he has done or said to her behind closed door. Could he have threatened her or her family if she did not come back to him?? Could he have destroyed her self worth enough that she feels that is the best she can do?? We may never know so we really should not pass judgement on either of them. But the teens that support Chris or anyone for the matter should be slapped with the reality stick and told to wake up.

    Sorry for going on like this I will get off of my soapbox now.
