Chris Brown sure can’t catch a break. Ever since he brutally assaulted Rihanna in 2009, it seems like everything he does gets picked apart and criticized, like when he dressed as a terrorist for Halloween, when he got arrested last year, when he called Aziz Ansari “Aladdin,” and when he crushed everyone’s dreams by backing out of that boxing match against Soulja Boy earlier today. Of course, Brown’s most vehement supporters are really the only ones who don’t think the bad press was warranted in those situations, but maybe this latest awful thing will finally convince people to jump off of the Chris Brown ship. (It won’t, but it’s nice to dream.)


According to the Associated Press, Brown has now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran for—get this—allegedly threatening her. The report says that Tran has accused Brown of “punching her in the stomach and pushing her down stairs” and has “repeatedly threatened her since December.” The restraining order was issued on Friday, and Brown has been ordered to surrender any guns he owns until a hearing on March 9.
