Chris Brown was already one of the most vilified men in the entertainment world thanks to his violent past with Rihanna. Now he is turning another group against him. According to Spin.com on Jan. 29, Chris Brown compared himself to Jesus Christ.
The idea here is that Brown feels that the media is constantly crucifying him whenever his name comes up in a controversial manner. This time it is about his alleged fight with fellow musician Frank Ocean. This follows the high level of media scrutiny after his assault charges involving Rihanna in 2009.
The problem here is that the media reported the charges involving Rihanna with photographs of the beat up pop singer. It almost made it impossible for Brown to deny any wrongdoing in that case.
Since that incident, Brown has seemingly rehabilitated himself, although neither he nor Rihanna can keep their personal lives off of Twitter and Instagram long enough to let anyone forget about it. In 2012, Brown seemed forgiven when he performed two songs at the Grammys and picked up an award for Best R&B album.
This latest charge has Brown accused of a parking-lot brawl with Frank Ocean, one that has Ocean threatening charges against Brown.
Chris Brown compared himself to Jesus Christ on his Instagram account when he posted a picture of Jesus hanging on the cross and said that was how he felt that day, comparing his problems of staying out of trouble and the media hounding him about it to Jesus dying for the world's sins.
