Chris Brown claimed officials with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office were racist on Thursday in an angry Twitter rant after he was given 1,000 hours of community service as part of his assault conviction for his Feb. 2009 beating of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
“(I) done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist ass crying to the judge that I didn’t do it. F— the SYSTEM!” Brown tweeted Thursday to more than 13 million followers.
The 24-year-old Forever singer, calling Los Angeles a “really f—– up” city, implored local officials to focus their efforts toward “all the homeless kids and families on skid row,” adding “Family first! The LAW…last.”
The mercurial Grammy-winner agreed to the 1,000 hours during an Aug. 16 court date, not saying anything during the actual hearing. His community service could consist of cleaning up trash off the freeway or painting over graffiti from public places.
The brouhaha began when officials with the D.A.’s office suspected Brown had not actually served the initial 180 hours he was sentenced to as part of his plea deal in the conviction, and pushed to revoke his probation.
