In related news, you can add one more celebrity who won’t be turning their back on Chris, despite all of the negative attention he’s been getting since he layed the smack down on ex girlfriend Rihanna. Rapper Yung Joc, who featured Brown on his new song, “Choose Me,” told MTV:

“I think the record is a great record. Why are we still ridiculing this man? He had a problem with his girl. I’m not condoning abuse. But they both got into it and they both got over it. Why can’t the world?”
