Great Success? Drake Was The Borat To Chris Brown’s Terrorist For Halloween

by (@zaragolden)

Last night, Chris Brown wore what must be the year’s most mistaken Halloween costume out trick-or-treating, earning himself near-unanimous disgust from across the internet. Headscarves on, beards “grown” long and guns held up and a blazin’ over their heads, Breezy and friends dressed to match as terrorists, posting the above picture to Instagram with a caption that read, “Ain’t nobody F—ing wit my clique!!!!#ohb.” No matter how you cut it, the costume bares little resemblance to “a sugar skull,” and was not likely inspired by some “MAC cosmetic design he saw;” rather, it’s culturally insensitive and boasting of violence, something a guy his history should be weary of. And that’s all to say nothing of the fact that he wore the “terrorizing” costume to Rihanna‘s party. Really, was CVS all out of Honey Boo Boo costumes by the time you got there?

Drake, meanwhile, took almost the exact opposite approach by dressing up as Borat Sagdiyev, the fictitious Kazahk journalist character Sacha Baron Cohen used to expose racism in America in his 2006 movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. So maybe Drake’s a little late to the Borat party, but at least he’s fashionably respectful. Can you imagine what might have happened if these two had bumped into each other last night? Brown might have learned a lesson in cross cultural compassion that he could use next year when he’s picking out his Halloween costume…
