He recently avoided hit-and-run charges that could have spelled serious troubled for him, but Chris Brown isn't celebrating.
Last week, the singer reached a "civil compromise" deal with the victim of a May 21 car accident. Subsequently, he had his previously revoked probation — which he was sentenced to in 2009, following his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna — reinstated. But there was a hitch. In February, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office expressed concerns about the community service he'd already served as part of his probation.
So on Aug. 17, Brown had to agree to serve an additional 1,000 hours of community labor as part of his probation arrangement. Now that he's had time to reflect on it, he has some choice words for the Los Angeles courts and the DA.
"N—- done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist ass crying to the judge that I didn't do it. F— the SYSTEM!" Brown wrote in a Thursday night Twitter rant. He suggested the legal system should focus on something other than him. "How about y'all take care of all the homeless kids and families on skid row. Promote helping people that are really f—ed up in your city!" he tweeted.
