Apart from the actual news, what has been making news and covering limelight is 50 Cent’s tweet and post which read, “CB better than MJ to me now”. He also went on to add, “I can’t believe mike wanted to touch the little boy’s booty.”
This last tweet was made in reference to the history that, Michael Jackson had been accused, long back by two men, who were then just kids. Although MJ always refuted the news and proudly walked out innocent and not guilty after the trials.
This tweet was an irony, because, The accusation was made on a rockstar, MJ, who had been proved innocent, whereas, Chris Brown has all his crime history wide open in the limelight. The biggest and most notable of all times being, his brutal assault on Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.
