Chris Brown is taking heat after yesterday’s controversial decision
Chris Brown is, as we all know, no stranger to controversy.
Just days after being involved in a serious altercation with police, the Virginian-born singer has made headlines again.
Appearing to have joined San Francisco 49ers quarterback. Colin Kaepernick, in his protest of the National Anthem, Chris decided not to stand during a rendition of the song yesterday.
Speaking last month, Colin explained that he would not be standing for the national anthem at public events all in an effort to raise awareness of social injustice.
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of colour," Colin said.
Whether Chris is officially Team Colin or was simply too lazy to get involved yesterday, he made waves after deciding not to stand during a rendition of the anthem which followed a tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11.
While USC’s Galen Center urged everybody to get involved at Power 106’s All Start Celebrity Game yesterday, 27-year-old Chris and a number of others remained seated during The Star Spangled Banner.
The public have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the controversial move, with one writing: "Yeah, real classy move. It's the flag that caused the hate, not the people, that's right."
"It's 9/11 have some respect for the lives lost. Any other day do as you wish. But have some sympathy," urged another.
