Stockholm Residents Protest Chris Brown Concert With Pics of Battered Rihanna
Chris Brown is set to kick off his European tour next week, but some folks are not happy that he's coming across the pond. Unknown pranksters in Stockholm, Sweden plastered Breezy's ex-girlfriend Rihanna's battered face on posters in protest of the singer's concert on Nov. 19.
According to Swedish newspaper Ajour.se, the posters, which are really in bad taste, show a mugshot taken by police after Rihanna was viciously beaten by Brown in February 2009. No one knows whose handiwork it is, but anti-domestic violence activists have requested that organizers cancel Brown's concert because of his violent past. Boy, those Swedes are not messing around.
This callous stunt follows a previous incident in which protesters slapped defamatory stickers on Brown's 'Fortune' CD that stated, “Warning: Do not buy this album! This man beats women.” Meanwhile, Rihanna, during a Facebook chat on Thursday (Nov. 8), spoke highly of her former boo Brown. "He's pretty dope, too," she said. "He’s kinda alright."
Despite the posters, it's not going to stop Brown from embarking on his 12-date world tour called Carpe Diem. The trek starts Nov. 17 in Norway and will take him through cities in Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France.
