Pop superstar Chris Brown lashed out at Donald Trump on social media over the weekend in response to jokes the president made during his speech to federal, state, and local law enforcement about cracking down on the deadly MS-13 gang.
During his speech Friday, President Trump jokingly told the room full of law enforcement personnel not to be “too nice” when apprehending gang members and assailants who had committed heinous crimes.
The president’s comments were met with laughter and applause from the audience. But Brown wasn’t impressed.
“WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FU–?????! HE GIVING POLICE MORE RIGHT TO FU– UP YOUNG BLACK MEN!!” Brown wrote in a profanity-filled Instagram post, that included a video of the president’s remarks.
Calling President Trump’s comments “crazy,” Brown wrote to his 39 million followers, “this is not how u make peace or any kind of help. Please wake up people!”
The “Royalty” singer has history of showing disdain for law enforcement and Brown’s behavior over the years has been mired in one police-involved controversy after another.
Brown was arrested and charged with battery in 2009 after brutally beating and hospitalizing his then-girlfriend, pop megastar Rihanna.
In an anti-Trump social media rant in March 2016, Brown wrote “F–k Trump and f–k the pigs” while urging Trump protesters to travel in large groups as a means of protecting themselves from threats of violence.
Leftist media personalities, including Keith Olbermann and Shaun King, also flipped out over President Trump’s remarks.
