Chris Brown And Rihanna Fans React To Not-Guilty PleaApril 8, 2009
On Monday in a Los Angeles courtroom, Chris Brown pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of assault and making criminal threats, charges stemming from his alleged altercation with girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of this year’s Grammy Awards. Since it happened back in February, fans have reacted with mixed feelings to the various stages of the incident, and Brown’s not-guilty plea is no different. Most fans think he made the wrong decision. “I don’t think that that’s right. I think he should [plead guilty],” Brandi Crosmer told MTV News. “You should take responsibility for your actions.” Many, like Crosmer, feel that Brown is using his fame to get out of trouble. “It’s disappointing that this is even happening,” Jennifer Weber said. “Chris Brown is looked up to by a lot of people.” Weber also added that if she was Rihanna, she’d feel “heartbroken” about the whole incident and that by pleading not guilty it would be like “you never knew him. If he’s going to go back on what he used to say and he’s not even going to be able to own up then you feel like you didn’t know him in the first place.” Read the full article at MTV.com.
