Apparently, Ne-Yo believes Chris Brown is being treated unfairly by the justice system because he's a celebrity. For real. He feels quite strongly about this, too.
Ne-Yo seems like a good guy who's entitled to his opinion.
It's just horribly misguided and absurd. Sorry.
TMZ talked to the R&B star and asked about the embattled Brown, with Ne-Yo quick to point out that the system "likes to make an example out of celebrities."
Seriously man? Do you really believe that?
Let's break it down in case Ne forgot, Yo:
- Chris Brown beat the $h!t out of Rihanna and only got probation. Not a bad deal for any defendant. All he had to do was stay clean through 2014.
- Of course, he cannot do this (see Chris Brown-Drake fight, Chris Brown-Frank Ocean brawl, Chris Brown-GMA window beef, etc., etc.)
- After all of that, he got arrested for assault in D.C. last year, but STILL wasn't jailed because a judge let him go to rehab for anger issues instead.
- He was kicked out of rehab TWICE.
Sure, being thrown in jail, then flown across the country on Con Air to stand trial is pretty tough, but does really sound like someone who doesn't deserve it?
You're out of bounds, Ne-Yo. Step off.
