Frank Ocean will not be pressing charges against Chris Brown following a parking lot altercation that took place earlier this week in Los Angeles, because Frank Ocean is not a killer; he’s an artist and a modern person whose preferred MO for making grand heartfelt statements that will make you feel small and human is Tumblr, apparently.
#artist #modernperson #killer #allcaps
In a statement posted a short time ago on his Tumblr blog, Ocean has seen fit to elucidate his stance on the now legendary quarrel, sir, which arose between himself and the super rich kid with nothing but fake friends outside a shared recording studio where the two reportedly exchanged blows over what one assumes must be a particularly excellent parking space; a hard to come by commodity in a city where everyone has a car but one too few spaces in which to park it. They should really do something about that.
Writes Ocean of his rumoured desire to press charges, as reported by a number of outlets this week, against the litigious Brown:
AS A CHILD I THOUGHT IF SOMEONE JUMPED ME IT WOULD RESULT IN ME MURDERING OR MUTILATING A MAN. BUT AS A MAN I AM NOT A KILLER. I’M AN ARTIST AND A MODERN PERSON. I’LL CHOOSE SANITY. NO CRIMINAL CHARGES. NO CIVIL LAWSUIT. FORGIVENESS, ALBEIT DIFFICULT, IS WISDOM. PEACE, ALBEIT TRITE, IS WHAT I WANT IN MY SHORT LIFE. PEACE.
So there you have it. Frank Ocean will not be pressing charges against Bad Hat Brown because of reasons that will only make you fall deeper in love with Frank Ocean: man of few words, man of peace, of forgiveness and of your #dreams.
