Rihanna & Chris Brown have stuff happen to them

February 10th, 2009 // 160 Comments

Here’s the latest info on Rihanna & Chris Brown as it steamrolls in:

- Rihanna is providing “ongoing cooperation” with police to build a case against Chris Brown. That probably means they’re not getting back together. [LA Times]

- Chris Brown “knocked around” Rihanna and she needed medical attention, a friend of the couple confirmed. The District Attorney’s office may file additional charges Wednesday or Thursday. [People]

- The “Got Milk” People have dropped Chris’s ad from their website and ended his campaign. For those keeping score at home that’s gum, milk and basketball who now hate Chris Brown. Next stop: Shoes. [TMZ]

- Kanye West and T.I. have weighed in on the situation. T.I. spoke to Chris Brown who is “cool” but “concerned” about the situation, while Kanye calls Rihanna his “baby sis” and “will do anything to help her.” Which apparently includes not blogging about in all caps. I’m as shocked as you are. [E! News]

NOTE: Encouraged by the “spirited” discussion in the threads, I’ve taken the liberty of forwarding certain commenters’ IP addresses to the Black Panthers in hopes that you can have an educational, face-to-face conversation about race relations. Merry Christmas! :D

    you’re a fucking g, fish. that is so baller.

    @78 seriously, i was wondering that

    if it was a bunch of black people making racist comments to whites, would fish submit their IP addresses to some KKK group?? its only fair

    #79 your an idiot, pick up a book, read a newspaper, the problem in Africa has nothing to do with the colour of skin, it goes back to colonization, when we the so called perfect white people went into places like Africa and South America and raped these people of their natural resources and anyway in which to sustain a viable way of living. So the problem in Africa, that our ancestor’s faults, and don’t think that you don’t bare the burden of guilt also. As much as North America and Western Europe is developed, thats how much we underdeveloped Africa. Uneducated, intolerable people like you is what is wrong with this world. Why don’t you get over yourself and try doing something that will make this world a better place and accept some responsibility as opposed to blaming “black” people for the problems in this world because it’s easier than looking in the mirror and figuring out what is wrong with yourself

    102- KKK aren’t the same as the Black Panthers. Both used militant tactics, yet the KKK was a hate group which targeted anyone who supported African Americans, including whites! The KKK lynched African Americans, and murdered whites who stood up against them. At one point the KKK were supported by the FBI’s corrupt J Edgar Hoover (who helped cover up the murder of a white female anti-racist activist and her black friend, and would later cover up the murder of a Black Panther activist who had never comitted any crime except verbally criticizing the government.) The KKK attacked people who registered African Americans to vote, and also KKK also persecuted any Jews and immigrants, most of whom were white, too!

    The KKK was formed by racists who wanted to maintain power, while the Black Panthers was formed in self-defense against these racists. Wouldn’t you be a little fed up if the government stood by while cops were unfairly beating up your friends, lynching your relatives, smashing the skulls of peace protestors (see: Freedom Bus rides and any MLK protest)? The Black Panthers would not attack anyone unless that individual was trying to attack them. They were created from the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racist crimes which affected them, their friends, and their ancestors. The Black Panthers were an organization of people trying to defend themselves against a society which had enslaved and continued to lynch and murder their ancestors— and their friends, of all colors.

    Fun fact— the Black Panthers attended many anti-racist events, even if the racial cause wasn’t African American. Some were active in Asian American anti-racist events, such as the I-Hotel protest. Hope this helps clear things up!

    And we’re back to square one with the silly racism. I thought comments were being moderated this time around…

    #103 – Isn’t it true that once the blacks forcibly ejected about 4500 white farners off their land in a redistribution program in 2000 that food production declined and essentially fell to famine levels? Same productively proven land but different farmers turned Zimbabwe from a net food exporter to a major food importer. BTW, economic mismanagement by the black government has led to 80% unemployment, hyperinflation, and the issuance of a new Zimbabwean dollar banknote in January of this year – for Z$100 TRILLION. I look in the mirror and don’t blame myself at all for this.

  7. lawrence

    Rihanna is really a nice girl! I enjoy her voice! It is said she is at a beautiful models site Richromances.com where many hot girls are looking for love. Is she pregnant?

  8. L

    I can’t even comment on all you racist losers. The bottom line is, racists are stupid and ignorant. The things they say are completely invalid. Enough said about that.

    I love Rihanna. She is beautiful! And I really hope that she is alright. I can’t believe what a C*NT Chris Brown is…Not to mention Terrance Howard… like, STFU, dikkhead! Its so unexpected… and sad! Poor girl.

    There really is no excuse for his behavior.

  9. ilikeyoghurt

    LMAO @ 21! “Adult supervision.”

    I forgot Yanks can’t wipe their own arses ’til they’re 21.

  10. RedPanda

    I hope no celebrities step forward to defend this guy. Adults should be able to resolve our problems in a calm and reasonable manner. Resorting to childish methods such as fighting is shameful.

  11. Nichole

    Create some needed-jobs and hire a geek or two to moderate these comments, Superficial.

  12. Question

    It is odd to me that asians are very different from white folk and yet, there does not seem to be any big problems compared to the white versus black thing. Whites seem to repect the asians for their quietude, intellect, hygiene. Do any of you bootlicking apologists factor this into your defenses?
    Black Panthers? I will tell the Nazis.
    BOO!

    Amazing how a site that is itself somewhat deplorable in it’s ridicule of other people, mostly white women, is defending another group of people.
    AHHHHH the hypocracy of it all!

    If you saw a turd on the ground would you keep staring at it and sniffing it or would you fucking walk on? Why not do the same here, if you don’t like what you are reading DON’T READ IT! Perhaps this site should close down if and should no longer feature the rotten commentaries written by the authors.

  13. authorego

    Hey! how come we get to say Fuck over here but not at Geekologie?

  14. Canadian

    It really is a testament to how little North Americans know and understand about their own society that they would ultimately blame the action of domestic violence on “race.” Race is a social construction, it was systematically created through social darwinism which was really popular around the time Africa was colonized and the African nations we know today were etched out by various European nations. The oppression of the colonized by the colonizers has left a long lasting effect on these nations, just as slavery of African Americans has in America (and lets of forget racial segregation until about 60 years ago…separate does not mean equal), as well as, from a Canadian perspective, the Aboriginal peoples who I see in my country as continuing to feel the effects of systemic racism. Although I understand it is easy to not confront these issues and to reduce everything to easily identifiable elements (i.e. age, race, social class), there are layers of things that cause the problems we see in Western society. Also, if a child experiences abuse in his home, he is much more likely to abuse himself. Maybe Chris Brown needs some narrative therapy to work through the times when he was a victim as well as a victimizer.

    #111 – So your preferred method of fighting intolerance is to become intolerant and selectively filter what gets posted here? Why stop at racism – why not ban nasty comments referring to age or weight or physical features or bad makeup? Seems like better choices would be to either ignore the comments & move on or refute them with your version of the “facts”.

    “asphalt surfing?” In my day, we just called it FELLATIO.

    @17 – Alex
    Sorry, I just got here, but your comment…
    “there’s a whole lot of pissed off women out there with the power to break some jaws that would love to see the comments some of the mysoginistic fucks left there.”
    So, it’s ok for you to threaten to break jaws? How do you know he wasn’t sick of Rihanna’s abuse and fought back? Seriously, I have a feeling your boyfriend (if you ever get one because you may very well be a lesbian or such a ugly (on the inside) horrible person no one will even approach you), is probably a pussy. If you’re gonna dish it, you’re gonna have to take it. I’m a woman & I’d love to see you get your teeth knocked out by a man whose jaw you just threatened to break.

  20. #61 – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    My IP is 255.255.255.255. Juts email me all of the offending IP adresses, so I can visit their double wides after I kick them off of the library computers.

  21. Hillary

    You are really such a funny writer! you should blog more even when there isn’t a great picture to post. times are shitty, at least you break it to us and give us a laugh! Thank you!

  22. greg

    jeez, 112, what do you expect? Everyone is hypocritical. It’s human nature. Sometimes when we see a shit, and we actually say, ” wow, a big ol’ shit.” Because most times shit gets flushed down the toilet. As for asians, well, right now the articles in question feature black people. That’s all.

    As to the article at hand, I wonder what actually happened here? I think that 73, em had some good insights.

  23. Spider Monkeys in the White House

    Every black run country in the world is in utter termoil. Negro Apes are incapable of responsibilty and leadership. After all, they’re just farm animals that have the ability to speak somewhat. Allowing them to roam freely, reproduce uncontrollably, and giving them the same rights as humans has never proven to have a positive outcome. Every urban setting in the world has been decimated by apes. Once proud cities that flourished for decades under white rule, now resemble war torn France after the blitzkreigs of WWII. There is no debate, blacks are a useless creature who ultimately lead to the demise of every civilization that allows them to roam freely. In fact, the only time in black history that the apes were useful and organized is when they were slaves.

    riri now has tina turner cred.

  25. bootlips

    Neegers lie to make themselves feel better. They refuse to acknowledge that the white race brought them jobs, money, schools, hospitals, transportation, food, housing, etc. They always blame whites for their problems but when white people leave, the neeggers starve to death. They can’t accept the fact that they haven’t evolved like other races so they depend on other races to survive. Before the white man, the average lifespan of a coon was 30 years.

  26. shalita

    Hey so how on earth are we still talking about race here?

    In ANY event, Chris Brown is a douche because he hits women. How fucking stupid do you need to be? Before the Grammy’s where you’re both supposed to perform, you think it’s a good idea to hit your girlfriend, WHO, might I add, probably had the single best year out of any other recording artist in the country…

    NICE…
    btw she’s way hotter than he is…

  27. Nigel

    I love you guys… All of you…

    #125 Posting on the Rihanna thread just seems to lack the urgency of breaking Geraldo’s nose.

    Also, you should get some Fred Perry shirts and suspenders. Skinheads pump my ‘nads! Well, skinheads and Moliere.

    Oh, and fuck you. toodles!

  29. bootlips

    More American are killed each day by Neegers in the USA then US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  30. Massa'

    Blacks don’t know how good they have it. If it weren’t for the White man, they’d still be running around naked in the deserts and jungles, throwing sticks, putting plates in their lips, bones in their noses, praying to rocks, killing each other, and starving to death.

    And remember this porch monkeys, there is no Popeye’s fried chicken restaurants in Africa. Ungreatful coons.

    We should’ve picked the cotton ourselves, or just used beaners.

  31. Cam

    38 – Heroin,…it’s a hell of a drug.

    I find this whole thing impossible to believe, I mean just look a Chris Brown,…
    I mean that guy screams “Classy romantic upstanding trustworthy gentleman” not “Illiterate gonna smack up muh bitch gimmie some ginandjuice rapper looking mofo” Oh,..CHRIS Brown…..nevermind, I was thinking of Ryan Thomas Brown ,…Y’know Meat from Saved by the Bell

    CHRIS Brown,…nah he gonna get raped.

  32. missywissy

    Hmmm…. I kind of like seeing the racists remarks. It makes me feel really smart when I come in here and read how little of IQ others posses. Go racists! The more I read the bigger my brain gets! Brings back the memories of John McCain’s campaign. Aaah. The stinch of ultimate stupidity. ( in white trash southern accent): I won’t vote for Obama because he’s an Arab! Hee hee. Poor McCain, should have went with his instincts instead of listening to all the big boys telling him what to do. Go racism! Respect to the Panthers. BTW, are they around anymore? No offense, but I just don’t see them hunkering over a keyboard giving people what they “deserve”. I say send the IP addressess to the Rainbow Coalition. Or ACORN.

    oh, and being Jesus too!
    Them dang uppity Jesus’s.

    Also I hate umbrella’s…ella’s….ella’s.

  34. bootlips

    If it weren’t for whitey the coons would still be talking in clicks and clacks. The boneheads are the only race that didn’t create a written language. That’s why they have no history. The jungle bunnies were too stupid to do the basics. You are more apt to find dinosaur bones in Africa then you are to find anything the negro constructed. Not a tool can be found. They lived like wolves before humans brought civilization to them.

  35. tom

    She is a hottie, but there is something not quite right with the shape of her head. Just not quite right.

  36. RUN DC

    #134 “If it weren’t for whitey the coons would still be talking in clicks and clacks.”

    and if it weren’t for your use of the outdated term “whitey” I wouldn’t think you might be my dead grandpa.

    I love you racist pa-pa!

  37. TJ

    Just two nappy headed pick-a-ninnies scrapping before they mate. What’s new? Yaaaaaawn.

  38. pinky_nip

    Maybe next time she’ll listen.

    #137 “What’s new?”

    well, an interesting article in COUSIN DIDDLER QUARTERLY you might find interesting, also they’re makin’ squeezable baloney in tubes now for easier fryin’! Thems good eats!

  40. William

    Black people are perfect. They never do anything wrong. And if they do, it can be blamed on some systemic bias. Now give me a star. See what a caring liberal I am?

  41. ICWatudidthere

    I hate to agree with ~78, but unless Fish this is a new start of finger wagging at the comments on threads, it really is just a bit hypocritical. Comments are always flooded with racist remarks against, well, every race, not just blacks, comments about the poor, the rich, the retarded, homosexuals, you name it you can find the trash talking comfortably sitting in the comments on The Superficial. I mostly choose to ignore it, but with Fish actually acknowledging it, shouldn’t you point out and reprimand all of it?

  42. Zanna

    @141 – agreed. If the Superficial is going to start with this, the name of the site is going to have to change to Big Brother. Oh, I mean, Big Brothah *puts black power fist in sky*

  43. BEAM

    I like the irony of The Fish coming out against the bigotry here while fully half of his posts include taking stereotypical swipes at rural, southern whites. A personal fave is when he compared a Sarah Palin rally to a KKK meeting.

    Fish you are every bit as guilty of stirring intolerance and hate.

    #136—I never EVER posted on this site before, but I almost shat myself in a fit of laughter…..”I love you racist pa-pa”

    Genius. Fucking GENIUS!!

    Support black women being battered or be a racist. Your choice.

    #112-
    The “quiet Asian” is a myth. Many Asian Americans have historically been forced into silence by being positioned as a “model minority.” Selective groups of Asian Americans (mostly Chinese and Japanese) were used as representations for all Asians. Asian Americans are a very diverse group— religiously, ethnically, economically, and linguistically. Yet white racist thought tends to group them into one homogenous mass, picking and choosing which “leaders” they want to listen to. Typically you hear a lot about Chinese and Japanese leaders and intellectuals, but much less from, say, Vietnamese or Hmong. That’s why you don’t hear much from Asian Americans from Laos or Cambodia, whose voices are routinely ignored.

    The model minority myth pits Asian Americans against other minorities. White racists treated some groups of Asian Americans marginally better than blacks, but did not really give them equal standing with the “real, white” Americans. After slavery ended, Asian American “coolies” (similar to slaves) were used by former slave masters instead of African American freedmen— a cheap method which took many Asian lives, and also kept freedmen from finding the work they needed to support themselves. Many Asian Americans were pitted against African Americans by being forced into such poverty that they needed to work as strikebreakers, or just compete against African Americans for lowly scraps of jobs. Many Asian Americans were fleeing colonialist occupation or dictatorships in their homeland, and could not afford to be sent back. Their very lives depended on “making it” in America. (this continues to be true, and the LA Riots are part of this.)

    Racism pitted and cotinues to pit two marginalized groups against each other, yet neither really benefits. We have a black president, we have successful Japanese doctors, but most Asian- and African-Americans are still paid less on an individual basis than white Americans, and are diminuatively referred to as “minorities” that are part of America, but not REAL Americans. Not all Asian Americans played into the hands of white racism, but again, their voices are ignored. The media hails the model-minority Asian as proof that we don’t need welfare funding or affirmative action, or any measure to correct the ugly scars of racism that still marr our country. The Model Minority myth is used to duck social responsibility, and leave it to underpriviledged communities to pick up the pieces of racism— when racism is a problem ALL American communities need to take responsibility for mending. It’s all of our problem.

    The root of all sexism, racism, ect. is:

    FEAR

    INSECURITY

    LACK OF EDUCATION

    Behind every comment saying ‘she probably asked for it’ is a poor little boy who’s mother didn’t pay him enough attention. Behind every comment like ‘thats just what blacks do’ (a tame example) is a person who is afraid of black people and this fear shames them, so they invent reasons to legitimize their fear and hence lessoning the shame. For all those who point out that this behaviour is more prevalent among black people (which I don’t believe) or that there are more black people in jail and so on, have no knowledge of history and their socio-economic struggle. Slavery was only abolished less than 150 years ago for christs sake! And now they have come so far that a black man can be your president and yet there is statistics detramental to the equality theory, why? Because the inherrant, subliminal racism keeps them from achieving their full potential in many cases as can be showen in the incredibly sad ‘doll experiment’. Google it.

    #114 – BRILLIANT! ZOMG, love it, FINALLY an intelligent comment on this site! The same goes to #147!

    #123, 129, 130 & 137, amongst other notable RACISTS on this thread, are useless fucking trolls. I would love to corral you all up and pull your fingernails out with pliers. Oh yeah, and I’m a college-educated WHITE GIRL. Chew on that, you Alabama redneck sister-humping posters.
