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.

Chris, all that ink.. not attractive. But like everything obsessive with CB, he had to go over the top and like the ink, his gross obsessiveness will follow him for the rest of his life. The guy is an idiot and I blame his worthless mother. They're about cashing in by any means necessary and living in the moment. He has not surrounded himself with sound people and it shows.
Chris, sorry, but you've been punked... and frankly at this point, you deserve it.

I'm not a chris fan, but I was to read here that he is trying to do better. I see a lot of people don't believe his act of kindness, personally I think people can change, but only if they want to. Hope to see more kind acts from chris, he has a lot of bad karma to make up for. WTG Chris!!!

Chris has always been a nice guy, Rihanna's the abusive personality.
But don't expect the general public to discern that, they're quite typically fickle and willfully ignorant.

Regardless of his past, that was a nice gesture. Some people can't even see that or take it for what its worth.

that was sweet, everyone makes mistakes some bigger than others, everyone needs to get over it, you are no better, being so hateful. You are no one to judge, that is for his maker, and I am sure he is already forgiven, so get over it. Chris Brown that was sweet, don't let no one bring u down with their ugly comments.

Seeing that Chris Brown witnessed domestic abuse growing up, I understand this gesture. He just has a soft spot for these kinds of kids.

WOW people have been asking when he was going to help out domestic abuse victims and he does and people are still giving him crap. Just shows you can never win.

Too little too late, loser. BTW - I looked up some day of the dead tatts online - Chris's new tat has a vague influence but looks nothing much like a traditional sugar skull. If it was a sugar skull tat he wanted he could have gotten any other design that did not at all resemble the Rihanna beatdown pic. Sure, maybe it's "not Rihanna" or whatever, but she's the first thing we all thought of when seeing the tattoo, and I'm positive that's intentional. Attention seeking, abusive *******.

"sources tell TMZ" eh? As in his press people? Personally, I'm sick of seeing the same people over and over who have armies of press agents. TMZ just laps it all up like the good little money grubbing dog they are.

The ice cream was for reducing the swelling bruises that mysteriously appeared on the kids.
