Frank Ocean Forgives Chris Brown

Alberto E. Rodriguez

It's probably safe to say Frank Ocean is the bigger man in this situation. Despite earlier reports that the singer would be pressing charges after Chris Brown allegedly punched him in a recording studio, Ocean said Saturday he will not be pursuing a case against the famously aggressive Brown. “As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man,” Ocean wrote in a post on his Tumblr page. “But as a man I am not a killer. I’m an artist and a modern person. I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”
