Chris Brown

I Killed My Graffiti

Monsters ... NOT the City

Exclusive Details

0711-chris-brown-graffiti-tmz-wm-3-subChris Brown is kissing his precious graffiti monsters goodbye, and while it looks like he lost the war to keep the"art" on his Hollywood Hills home -- Chris is saying it's coming down by his choice ... TMZ has learned.

As we previously reported ... Chris has been fighting the city of L.A. since May over the graffiti he plastered on an exterior wall of the house -- even claiming it's protected by the 1st Amendment.
 
After neighbors complained the images were a blight on the block ... the city threatened to slap Chris with a heavy fine -- but today workers slapped a fresh layer of paint on the concrete wall.

0712-CHRIS-BROWN-x17-graffitiBut sources close to Chris tell TMZ he remains defiant ... and only covered up the painted creatures because he wanted to -- NOT because of the city's threats.

Whatever the reason, the L.A. Building Department of Safety says if its inspectors are satisfied the graffiti is covered tomorrow ... Chris will not be fined.

It's unclear if Chris plans to put up something new. So ... case closed?

Too many of these low class thugs around in the news these days; Smashing cars, public restaurant urination, speeding + terrorizing neighbors, nasty faces, etc., etc.
They all have real bad karma which does catch up with you.
Waiting for the day they are behind bars.

They can't let him set a precedence. They have to treat all graffiti the same whether it was done by a tagger, a gang member or a self entitled can't-be-a-has-been-cuz-he's-a-never-was.

He's talented but that doesn't give him carte blanche to do it wherever he wants. Him thinking he is above the law was just stupid. No one wants to turn their neighborhood into the ghetto. He wants to be around graffiti go back - take it to Compton. Where I'm sure his pansy ass would get rocked within an hour of setting foot in.

Too bad the neighbors still have to put up with the party's, excess cars, talking, laughing all hours of the night. A hole belongs in jail and will be there soon enough.

Meanwhile all the people that complained are in their houses doing cocaine, talking racist, employing illegal immigrants and paying them nothing all while their husbands are sleeping with mistresses and paying for prostitutes.

Long Live Chris Brown!

Wall is still RUINED . . . Now it just has dark gray rectangles on it.
`
Re-plastering the 'entire' wall is the only solution to restoring it to new-like conditions.

I hope this isn't the finished product because it looks worse than the original!
