The attack on Hip Hop artist Chris Brown over his abuse of R&B Rihanna and his defiance in the face of public criticism continued when comedian Kevin Seccia published a blog post on Feb 20, offering $1000 dollars to the first person who pummels [Brown].
The post appeared on Seccia's website, www.howtobeatupanything.com, a promotional site for his book Punching Tom Hanks, where the TV writer generally sticks to comedic posts about how to beat up various things (Santa Claus, Batman or the legendary Greek Warrior Achilles). But Seccia took a serious tone in his most recent post, writing, In the past I've written a lot of comedic, not-to-be-taken-seriously stories regarding how to beat up people and things for fun. This isn't that.
Seccia proceeded to list the numerous reasons why he was offering a bounty of one thousand dollars to the first person who beats up Chris Brown.
Later in the post, Seccia offers a specific definition for what constitutes beating up Brown, writing, To be clear, beating him up means at least two solid punches, and adding, This is NOT MURDER, it's an ass-kicking. Just hit him.
Before making the offer online Seccia actually consulted a lawyer regarding his culpability in court if someone actually takes him up on his offer, which surprisingly no one has in the four days since he made the offer. After a lawyer told the comedian that he might be tried in court if it could be proven that his offer was earnest, Seccia was forced to note that for legal reasons I will say this is partially a joke.
That doesn't mean he won't make good on his offer though: HOWEVER, if you were to hit him and then email me video proof of that beating, I would absolutely, one hundred percent guaranteed send you a thousand dollars. You know, that money I already owed you, or something.
Seccia added, I like our chances with a sane jury, suggesting that most juries would not side with Brown considering his history as a woman abuser.
In the long blog post Seccia also attacks the Grammys and society in general for giving Brown a second chance that he did not deserve.
Seccia writes, Around that time an antiquated awards show actually GAVE HIM AN AWARD and let him perform on a stage in front of millions of people, TWICE, sending a clear message to society, abused women and young girls everywhere that, 'Hey, this kind of thing happens, sorry ladies. There is money to be made by a shitty organization. You understand, right?' He concludes, Grammy Awards, there is blood on your hands.
Chris Brown has taken criticism from singer Amanda Lambert and WWE wrester CM Punk, who challenged him to a fight in the ring, stating in a video he posted online, I will choke you out, and I will make you feel as weak and as powerless and scared and alone as any woman who has had the misfortune of knowing a sad, cowardly little boy such as yourself.
Brown was convicted of physically assaulting his then-girlfriend, Hip Hop star Rihanna, in 2009 after he punched her repeatedly with one hand while driving his car with the other, according to a recently leaked police report detailing the event. Rumors began to fly about a possible reconciliation between the two after they collaborated on each other's new songs, and have since gotten back together despite the best efforts of their friends.
