Is Chris Brown the right man for this job? Well, it depends on who you ask. Some scoffed at the announcement that Brown was going to go face-to-face with domestic violence victims, saying that the only thing he wants to do is hit them in the face. But others felt that the move could be good for his soul and his image.
This week, it went down. Chris met with a group of domestic violence victims as the host of a back-to-school event where the proceeds went to charity.
Chris made the appearance on behalf of the Jenesse Center and youth advocacy group, The Change.
“It’s in my heart to show my fans, my friends and family and the families at Jenesse who stood by me they were right to give met another chance. I’m working hard to make them proud,” he said.
Chris got major kudos from Karen Earl, the founder of the organization. She states that Brown and his mother, Joyce Hawkins have done wonderful work for the charity. Chris’ mother was a victim of domestic violence herself, which may have been an influence in the singer’s decision to beat his ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
“Chris and his mom have spent many quiet hours at our facilities, no cameras, no special attention or entourages,” Earl said.
Is Chris changing his ways? We’re not sure. But this probably helps him at least settle the terms of his probation.
