Lately I have been seeing all these disgusting signs of Chris Brown plastering the highways of Beirut. He's coming to Lebanon soon but I don't really give an F because I have been over Chris Brown since 2009. Also, I never really cared too much for his music anyway.

I just want to make it very clear why I will not be attending Brown's concert and discourage you from buying tickets as well. Here is why:

1. He beat Rihanna

If you have been living under a rock, or maybe an ISIS-controlled part of the world, you may not have heard but back in 2009, Brown beat the shit out of his girlfriend Rihanna. He got arrested, did some celebrity-slap-on-the-wrist-time and went on making his millions. Yeah sure, Rihanna took him back in the end, but some of us have a hard time leaving abusive relationships. That doesn't mean that Brown changed.

2. He got a tattoo of Rihanna's beaten face

Ok, so you're willing to forgive brown for beating his girlfriend's face black and blue. Cool, you have a big heart. You think he changed? Well explain the tattoo of her beaten face that he proudly brandished on his neck! Sure, he denied that it was Rihanna. His friends pointed out, "It's a random woman." So I guess tattooing the face of a random woman's beaten face that looks eerily similar to the ex that you infamously beat isn't so bad?

3. He's a cheater

After things went further south with Rihanna a few years later, Brown moved on to another victim. Karrueche Tran dated Brown for a hot second, and then she found out that not only was he cheating on her but he had a child with another woman! After she pointed out aptly on social media that cheaters are likely to cheat again and that his new boo shouldn't have any unrealistic fantasies about a happy home, Brown made sure to respond by calling her a THOT (That Hoe Over There) on some sexy selfies she posted to Instagram. Sure brown, she's the hoe.

4. He's a player

While he supposedly gave some inspiring tribute at some award ceremony to his new daughter, Brown got all snuggly with Rihanna once again (this girl seriously needs to move on!) Rumors have even started circulating that the troubled couple may resume their "hopeless place" romance. Looks like Tran may have been right.

5. I'm jealous and I want Rihanna to love me

Look, I'll be straight-up. I have been in love with Rihanna since her track, "Umbrella". Sure, I'll come stand under there. I just want to scream Vertical Horizon lyrics in Rihanna's face: "I say all the right things, at exactly the right time, but I mean nothing to you and I don't know why, and I don't know why!" This post is actually a desperate hope that she'll stumble across it and realize that there are actually men out there who would treat her with respect.

6. Violence against women is a problem in Lebanon

But on a serious note, with all the domestic violence problems in Lebanon, don't we all agree that attending Chris Brown's concert would be another slap in the face to all the woman who have suffered at the hands of husbands, boyfriends and fathers in this country? Wouldn't it be a slap in the face to all the hard work that KAFA has been doing to combat these societal problems? I just hope nobody who found it trendy to dawn heels and walk a mile a couple months ago in support of women's rights will also be dancing with Brown in BIEL.

I'm calling for a boycott of Brown's concert. Let's make this disgusting guy "khalas" in Lebanon "Forever."
