Chris Brown had a tearful outburst at Sundayâ€™s BET Awards that had people debating whether his crying was genuine or not. Some said that Brownâ€™s crying during his Michael Jackson tribute was the real thing, worthy of giving Brown a second chance. Others, including myself, felt that Brownâ€™s crying was an insincere PR stunt.
Well, USmagazine.com revealed this morning that a source has come forward claiming that Chris Brown used a special eye drop to create his tears. In other words, Brownâ€™s â€œgenuine show of emotionâ€ may have been total theatrics. The source says Brownâ€™s bodyguard supplied him with â€œtear-inducing eye drops,â€ which he then rubbed in to create the tears. Wow.
Chris Brownâ€™s camp is denying it, of course.
Me? Sadly, I would not be shocked if the allegations are true. I think that the young man saw an opportunity to manipulate viewers into forgiving him so that he could move forward with his career. If he used drops to create the tears, I am even more repulsed by his little â€œshowâ€ on Sunday. Brown faking the emotion is one thing. Using eye drops, in my opinion, makes it even worse.
So, what do you think of the allegations of â€œtear-droppingâ€?
