Did Chris Brown dress up as a Terrorist for Halloween? Chris Brown might love to get dressed up and party for Halloween, but he probably didn’t think his choice of costume all the way through. The R&B singer and his friends decided to dress up as what many feel was a terrorist for this year’s Halloween (even though we think it’s offensive that people think all people who dress this way are “terrorists”). Chris must have honestly seen no offense in this choice because he proudly tweeted and uploaded a photo of the controversial costumes to his Instagram account. What he thought would be perceived as hilarious has ignited yet another controversy for the singer who was said to be in the middle of cleaning up his image to improve his record sales. After seeing the photo, I’m wondering why none of his handlers didn’t convince him to be something else for Halloween this year.
Here’s the photo that started all the drama and ignited outrage on the internet:
Immediately, people began to drag Chris for what they felt were insensitive Halloween costumes. The most offended were Muslims, who couldn’t understand why Chris would “make fun” of their culture and religion for Halloween purposes.
Here’s some of the tweets:
Chris Brown was said to have tweeted that Halloween is all in fun and people shouldn’t take costumes so seriously, but it looks like that tweet might have been deleted.
