Chris Brown pulled the halloween equivalent of Prince Harry dressing as a Nazi by going to Rihanna’s halloween party as a Taliban terrorist, complete with beard (mandatory for Talibs) and an assault rifle. What was he thinking?
Brown, 23, and some of his hangers-on were spotted wearing Arab robes, turbans and long beards. Brown also carried a realistic looking toy gun to Rihanna’s bash at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood.
The R&B singer posted photos of his entourage on his Twitter account.
The costume was a fright for Arabs and non-Arabs alike. By now, some crazed Imam has probably declared a Fatwa against him.
Chris Brown Disgusts in Taliban Costume
In terms of offensiveness it ranks just below Prince Harry’s Nazi costume, which the royal wore to a 2005 costume party.
The prince apologized after photos of him in a Nazi uniform, complete with a red swastika armband were published in British tabloids, causing a uproar of condemnation.
But Brown was nothing if not defiant: “Ain’t nobody F–king wit my clique!!! #ohb,” he tweeted, linking to an Instagram shot of his posse in terrorist garb.
Brown’s image has been tarnished because of ongoing anger management issues and his infamous assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He and the Barbadian singer have since reunited, and Rihanna is reported to be one of his go-to girls.
The United States and Nato, of course, has been waging a war against the Taliban in Afghanistan for almost a decade and more than 4,000 coalition soldiers have been killed in the fighting.
