Chris Brown

Caught Being a

Nice Guy

0911_chris_brown_ice_cream_man_compositeWho screams for ice cream? Chris Brown screams for ice cream ... and so did the 60 plus kids he bought it for last week in a random act of kindness ... yup, we said kindness ... and Chris Brown. 

The singer was in L.A. last week, volunteering with the Jenesse Center -- a non-profit domestic violence and prevention organization -- to host their "Back To School Festival" ... where youngsters (involved in domestic violence households) were outfitted with school supplies.

Sources tell TMZ ... while working the festival, Brown saw an ice cream truck outside the event ... and decided to buy all the little tykes and adults in attendance some of the creamy goodness.

We're told Brown -- who has been involved with the organization since 2009 (yeah that year) -- wasn't asked to shell out for the treat ... he did it totally on his own.

All in all he dropped a few hundred bucks ... but made a lot of kids smile.

The TMZ crowd is always going to have something negative to say. Chris just needs to keep doing what he's doing for himself and the current and future women in his life. He gets an A for effort from me.

Are you kidding me! What the matter with the jenesse center letting Chris volunteer at a domestic violence and prevention organization. People don't want an ex porn star to read books to kindergartens but it's ok for Chris to do this. You guys are sending out be wrong message.

Most people in America have such hatred for Chris Brown because he's black. PERIOD. What he did in 2009 was wrong (obviously) but he was 19 and hasn't put his hands on a woman since then. Why do old azz actors who should know better, like Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson get a pass? Because they are WHITE. They are also repeat offenders but they get titles like "bad boy" etc. Chris is labeled a " thug" and "ghetto" all names reserved mostly for men of color. I read an article about how race plays a role in how and why Chris continues to be vilianized--that was written by a white man. I believe every bit of it now...people are in serious denial about race relations in this country. We all get that he did something terrible but it was years ago. Let him live his life like Mel and Charlie are allowed to do.

Dang, all you people hating on Chris are WACK. YOUR WAY WORST than the people throwing stones at people's heads. I'm happy we're no in roman empire era cause you people would be hard to please in the arena. Just forget the point of the story, you know GOOD HEROISM AND STUFF. Naw, these haters and quite frankly (closet racist) love to get the
chance to barbecue a black man. Well, I be got damn.

"See, I can be a nice guy when someone is filming me" What a douche bag! Oh yeah, great looking neck tattoo. Only classy, respectable people get tattoos on their neck.

Random acts of kindness are what you do when no one's looking. When you have "sources" inform the media about it it's called a publicity stunt. He's still a piece of ****.

All of you have just convicted this boy, what about Rhianna, she is the bitch that I don't trust and would do anything to get publicity. Iwish you guys would look at both sides of the story before condemming this boy. She made him who you people think he is today. Take a closer look at Rhianna.

This is all about publicity for Rhianna and Chris, he is getting a lot of press because of this, but he is also getting richer each time the press takes his picture.
