Crazy Chris Brown claims his new battered woman tat is a Mexican sugar skull!
Chris Brown is back at it again! His latest douche-y move? Tattooing his neck with what looks like a picture of a battered woman, who the public quickly identified as ex-girlfriend Rihanna. But now, Breezy's rep is denying this claim, saying the tattoo is not of his former love, but the image of a sugar skull, the symbol associated with the Mexican celebration of el Día de los Muertos.
Oh hell no, he did not just go there!
"His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw," the rep told TMZ. "It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported."

Um, okay, besides the fact that the tattoo looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like a sugar skull, this ridiculous explanation is super fishy because, oh yeah, Chris Brown is not Mexican….or Latino at all for that matter. So why in the world would he get a cultural symbol that is not even from his culture permanently inked on his body?
The whole thing just infuriates me to no end--not only because it makes zero sense, but because as a Latina, I do not want to be associated with this idiot in any way, shape or form…and I'm pretty sure most people in the community would agree with me!
Do us a favor, Chris Brown: next time you decide to get a tatto or say or do anything that is remotely related to our culture, please just don't.
What do you think the tattoo looks like? Could it really be a Día de los Muertos skull?
