We've learned two lessons this week in the wake of Chris Brown related news. One, regardless of the violence, Brown considers himself "winning" because of his large fan base and musical success; and two, young women and women's rights activists have the ability to put a stop to it.
You know what they say about opinions and assholes, right? Well, there are a whole lot of both flying around since Chris Brown deleted his Twitter account over the weekend after a brief, vulgar exchange with comedian Jenny Johnson.
There's a lesson in this for Brown. The short version: If you've beaten a woman in the past and ever want to near redemption, don't put yourself in positions that can lead to further violence. You will always lose.
On Twitter you're just following someone from afar, sort of like stalking but in a distant and unattached kind of way. So why should it matter whether she's following him or not? It's not like they were friends on Facebook.
