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.

I think this is a great thing that Mr. Brown is doing. He has always done things like this but does not publicize it. His road to redemption has been long and hard, but he has withstood the test of time despite all the things the media has said about it. I commend this young man for all he has done to rehabilitate himself. Keep up the good work, Mr. Brown!

FInally chris is being recognised for his good work. He deserves a second chance just like everyone does and he sure has redeemed himself. Look beyond the past and give him some recognition for his persistence in trying to change. Well done chris!

Unlike you people, I am not going to sit here and judge people that I don't PERSONALLY know, all I am going to say is, if she forgave him, i don't see why the rest of the public can't? It had nothing to do with any of you, none of you had any part in it whatsoever, you can all say what you want, but in the end of the day, you claim to "hate" people like chris, why don't you give him a chance to change? how do you expect him to change if you keep judging him by his past? He is doing everything he can to show the world that he is becoming more mature than he already was, and to show you all how nice he can really be. No he is not "Changing" he was always the nice person that he is, you people just chose to look at the worst in him. AND THEN, when he has enough and sticks up for himself, you all decide to jump down his throat. Stop judging him by a mistake he made as a teenager that he has apologized for, a COUNTLESS amount of times, this matter happened 3 years ago, whatever happened, happened. I am sure if he could, he would take every second of it back, but that is not the point. What happened to artists being judged by their talent and music? What happened to judgements being made by their songs? If you don't like his music, don't listen to it, but i suggest you do, because it's brilliant. 'Fortune' is available in stores now, and debuted at #1 in over 5 countries on it's first day of release. Stop looking at the worst of every situation and stop living your lives in the past, move on and leave what happened in the past, IN THE PAST and look into the future, Chris is trying to show you all the nice person that he is, so if you have nothing nice to say, shut your mouth and go buy his album. I don't care if you hate this comment or it "wasn't worth the read" because nobody asked anyone to read this, so stop judging him by his personal life, it's called PERSONAL for a reason, so if you want to make any judgements or comments about him at least have the decency and respect to base it upon his incredible music, i hope some people actually took the time to realise what I am trying to say, if you disagree with me, i don't give a flaming ****, go buy his latest album 'Fortune' because i am sure, after you listen to it, you will regret any negative thing you have ever said about him.
