The Word: Chris Brown throws (tags) gang signs
You know who is totally killing it at life right now? Chris Brown.
That guy is like the poster child for good decision making and not s—tting all over your own personal brand. Beat up your very famous girlfriend? Check. DWI? Check. Insane Twitter rants about every gripe that passes through your crazy head? Check. Insinuating that you have ties to a very violent gang by illegally graffiti-ing a building? Check!
Brown hit that last checkbox on Thursday in Hawaii, according to TMZ, when he took time off from drinking fruity cocktails and hitting the beach to tag a wall with epitaphs like “F— police” alongside what is apparently a shout-out to the Bloods.
Brown, he of sound life choices, signed his illegal street art with the words “Fruits Piru,” which people who know more about the intricacies of urban gang life than myself speculate is a reference to the Fruit Town Piru gang, a subset of the scary-as-hell L.A. gang.
Because a smart thing to do when you’re on probation, and also a famous person, is to pledge your allegiance to one of the world’s most notorious street gangs. Killing it!
