Chris Brown has had enough of the president’s agenda.
When Donald Trump addressed a crowd of Long Island law enforcement officials on Friday, the POTUS encouraged them to be tougher on arrested individuals.
“When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon — you just see them thrown in rough — I said, ‘Please don’t be too nice,'” the POTUS demanded.
Shortly after, Brown posted a video of Trump’s address to his Instagram with the caption: “WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F-CK?????! HE GIVING POLICE MORE RIGHT TO F-CK UP YOUNG BLACK MEN!! SH-T IS CRAZZY!!! this is not how u make peace or any kind of help. Please wake up people!”
While many of the comments on Brown’s post echoed the singer’s sentiments, others were quick to point out that Trump never mentioned race in his speech.
“He said THUGS….why are you automatically assuming they are young black men?” one user wrote.
Another responded, “We know he didn’t say black people… he said ‘thugs’ but normally when you hear the word ‘thugs’ and think of a race you think of the black race more than any other race. That’s all, Chris was basically simplifying it. But tbh we are ALL TARGETS.”
Trump elaborated on his demands, adding that he wants officers to quit putting their hands over thugs’ heads while they escort them into police vehicles.
“Like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody,” he said. “You can take the hand away, OK?”
Trump’s address was met with loud cheers from the crowd. The Suffolk County Police Department later tweeted the following message on Twitter :
As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners.
