Man, the public is harsh.


Despite three years passing and Rihanna forgiving her former flame, Chris Brown remains a constant target for media, blogosphere criticism.


He performed in February on the Grammy Awards stage, receiving scathing remarks for his long past actions. Three years isn’t enough to forget.


Since releasing his latest album, “Fortune,” the pop star couldn’t escape the iron fist of certain critics. Chad Taylor was simple:


“Chris Brown hits women. Enough said.”


Music critic and journalist Chloe Papas went all out on the new project, but gained quite the headlines for writing what is being called the best album review.


“Chris Brown has released his fifth studio album – a 19-track repugnant record that we can only hope will be his last,” she wrote.


She called Brown’s song “Till I Die” “a catastrophic misogynistic sh-t of a song,” and added that the entire album is “skitzy” with only two themes: “Unprotected sex is cool and partying is fun.”


But she made it abundantly clear where she was coming from. She concluded her review by saying it doesn’t matter how much talent the boy has, he’s a lady beater and shouldn’t be supported.


Papas added, “Regardless of whether Chris Brown has any musical talent (he doesn’t) or whether this album is any good (it isn’t), the man recently brutally assaulted a woman, and is still regularly invited back to award shows and worshipped by ‘Breezy’ fans worldwide. Which is, frankly, disgusting. And for those of you out there saying you need to separate the music and the man: screw you, don’t encourage his actions. Final words: don’t buy this album.”
