Heads up: Top comment and controversy

Chris Brown attends Rihanna's Halloween party dressed as an Islamic terrorist

E! Online

Chris Brown cannot catch a break, can he? First his pop career is derailed for all of two minutes by a domestic violence charge and now his taste in bad-taste Halloween costumes is being questioned by the media. That media!

E! online, for one, would have preferred that Chris Brown attended his girlfriend-friend-victim-whatever Rihanna's Halloween bash in a more traditional vampire get up. Or perhaps mummy bandages*? Instead he opted for a turban, a fake beard, long khaki robes and a bullet belt. "Given his history, you wouldn't think Chris Brown would want to associate himself with violence and destruction," commented Rebecca Macatee at E!

Brown seems to have been oblivious to potential criticisms. He tweeted a picture of his outfit along with the comment "Ain't nobody F**king wit my clique!!! #ohb"

He does have one loyal fan though: his mother. Mrs Brown, whose unflagging loyalty to her son has been commented on before, leapt to his defence on Twitter "HALLOWEEN IS FOR FUN NOTHING MORE THAN JUST FUN. GET A LIFE PLEASE." (Caps are the tweeter's own.)

*Now we think about it, is there any Halloween costume Chris Brown could wear that wouldn't bring up uncomfortable associations in the minds of the public?
