Chris Brown is under heat for smoking what may have been marijuana on stage in Ghana last week. Known for it’s no-public-smoking laws, some Ghanaians have become so outraged they are ready to prosecute the singer for his behavior on stage.
“He promoted an illegality,” said Jonathan Osei-Owusu to Radio.com, who is the executive director of Perfector of Sentiments, a youth advocacy organization, who is leading the petition against Brown for promoting weed smoking and promoting civil unrest. “You can see from the video and yet he was let go free.”
The petition calls for major Ghanaian figures – from Parliament to the U.S. Ambassador in Ghana – to support the petition and to hold Brown accountable.
“He is on video to have encouraged the audience to take up arms against people who stand in their way to smoking weed,” the statement reads. “In our prisons, many are incarcerated for same.”
A video has surfaced online of Brown’s performance for Ghana’s 56th anniversary of their independence at the Accra Sports Stadium. The “Don’t Judge Me” singer can be heard asking the crowd, “How many of y’all smoke weed?” and continues, “If anybody is tripping of y’all smoking weed, f*** them. S***, I got my blunt right here.” SOURCE
