Anthony Geisler, President of LA Boxing, is dealing with Chris Brown's arrest on criminal threat charges in true eye-for-an-eye fashion. Geisler started a Facebook group earlier this week called, I Want to Fight Chris Brown. (At the time of this post the group had 1,528 members and counting.) He also sent a letter to Brown's manager challenging Brown to step into the ring with him and "see what it's like to face a real opponent."
Is this type of a reaction helpful in any way? Or is it just violence begetting more violence? Share your thoughts after the jump.
By now many of you have probably read about Chris Brown and his arrest Sunday night on criminal threat charges. The latest reports on the matter allege that Brown assaulted his girlfriend, R&B singer Rihanna with a deadly weapon. Rihanna was hospitalized (she has since been released), and Chris Brown faces a potential nine-year prison sentence. This is a tragedy, to be sure, but does it have anything to do with us?
I'm the type of person who likes to think of themselves as flying under the radar. So you can imagine my surprise when I woke up yesterday to find an email from American Apparel in reference to my blog post from Wednesday.
I'll include the email and my thoughts, after the jump.
