Da Brat -- Rum and Soap

8/22/2008 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Da Brat will go where a lot of rich white criminals don't -- prison...over rum.

She was just sentenced to three years for hitting a woman with a rum bottle last October. She'll get an additional seven years probation.

The victim -- a former Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader -- was hospitalized after the attack and permanently scarred.

Ms. Brat was convicted back in 2001 for misdemeanor reckless conduct.

while it may not be racist, three years is absurd! when idiots like khloe kardashian or nicole richie get a matter of minutes for possibly killing someone and Da Brat gets THREE YEARS!! for almost killing someone just isn't right.

i am not a fan of Da Brat. I am a conservative white girl. Yet, something is not right about this punishment.

Brat is caught up in some Hollywood/fame kind of thing and its destroying her. She has a good heart. This is so sad.

You are the ones bringing the race card. Yes, you fegs at TMZ. Why does it have to be about race? I bet she just couldn't keep her mouth shut and kept explaining why she did it. The judge had no choice.

Leave TMZ alone. They always do stories like this to strike DEBATE, not cause race wars.
Good point, she gets 3 years for drunken assualt but the rich white girls that drink and
drive get a slap on the wrist. Just sad.

I think the sentence is fair... This is a major assualt in that the girl has been permantly scarred- granted she might be able to hide the scar depends where it is-- plastic surgery may help who knows... SO Da Brat got what she earned Have fun in prison it will help with ur street credit. And anyone who watched the Surreal life knows that Da Brat deosnt use fists she likes to use bottles- remmeber the episode with Chynas boyfriend-

"The Brat " is exactly that...A BRAT, "an ill-mannered immature person"...she thought that she could attack this lady and walk away like nothing...she probably made an advance at the girl and it was unrequited...not everyone is a butch lesbian, some woman really are strictly d*ck...but you'll have a lot of muffin to chew on now "The Brat"...ENJOY!

Racist NO!! she deserved more. She messed up someone's face for life. You can't go around doing stuff like this and thinking you can get away with it because you "used" to sell some records. I am black and i think this sentence is not racist.

Bianca is a stupid bitch    

I think the sentence served the cause of justice instead of the cause of racism. TMZ has to stop being so sensitive about issues pertaining to race or sexual orientation because every other article by you guys is either about a "racist" or "homophobe." Stop being so damn politically correct because it's ignorant and childish.

People don't hear what is said.... people do not read what is written. The vote did not ask if this was a just sentence, it asked if it was a racist sentence. PLEASE THINK WHEN YOU RESPOND TO THIS STUFF!!! The question was not "Did she deserve the sentence?" The question was, "Is it a racist sentence?" Two entirely different things.
I personally think she deserved the sentence. I also think it is a racist sentence. White people.... even D List celebrities, tend to get more lenient punishments in this country. White people are getting away with all kinds of crimes they get caught for, more often than blacks and other minorities. So fair yes..... racist yes as well.
