Chris Brown Is Re-Releasing Merch That Mocks Rape Accusations
Chris Brown and "support of the people" actually were in the same sentence this week as the singer faced rape accusations in Paris that have come with more questions than answers. General support seemed to hit a decline Friday (Jan. 25) when the singer re-released merchandise to mock his accuser.
After issuing his public statement in the form of his popular Black Pyramid design, "This B***h Lyin'" the singer-songwriter decided to re-release the design as a "Paris" edition.
One shirt is a plain black tee with the saying written in bold white lettering, while the other is a printed picture of the Mona Lisa with the company's logo and the signature phrase pasted on it.
The shirts are $38 each.
The "Undecided" singer was detained and released in Paris, Tuesday (Jan. 22) after a women accused the RCA affiliate and his security guard of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room. Brown was questioned by the police, which eventually led to his release. While the investigation is currently ongoing, there have been reports that the story is not adding up from the alleged victim's perspectives.
The 29-year-old has reportedly filed a defamation lawsuit against the women and is seeking criminal actions.
While there is no indication that Brown is or is not innocent, these shirts are obviously insensitive to women who are victims of rape with accusers who deny the claims against them.
