“Might?” said everyone who is looking at that picture of a stoned Chris Brown and wondering just how many invisible cartoon squirrels he thinks he’s winking at. However, if you were to ask Chris Brown, he’s not stoned at all, and he definitely wasn’t so stoned that he was escorted off a plane.
TMZ reported that Chris Brown and his friends were thrown off a private jet bound for Cannes yesterday in Miami after the pilot complained that the cabin stunk of weed. According to a police report, the pilot warned all of them not to smoke on the plane. Clearly that pilot isn’t aware that Chris Brown is a proud graduate of I Don’t Give A Fuck Academy, because they went ahead and allegedly hotboxed the cabin. Police were called, and they smelled weed too, so they told everyone to get off the plane. As you can see by this collection of Snapchats from Chris Brown’s friends, they’re not exactly denying that they ignored the plane’s No Smoking sign.
But Chris Brown says that TMZ’s story is nothing but an airplane barf bag filled with wet lies. Chris finally got to Cannes (sorry, France), and the first thing he did was record an Instagram video slapping at TMZ. How dare TMZ attempt to tarnish his flawless reputation by spreading such a preposterous rumor!
If you don’t want to press play on that video, here’s what he said:
“Cannes, we are here. We’re gonna party up. Turn up tonight, I can’t wait. Seen something on TMZ talking about we got escorted off a plane? How the hell we in Cannes if we got escorted off a plane? One. Marijuana smoke on the plane? I think we kinda learned that lesson. I don’t think we really need drugs on the plane. But you probably should check with the pilot, because he definitely kept asking my homies for an 8-ball. And we definitely don’t sell drugs. So, Imma be rich, stay rich, and happy.”
Okay, so according to Chris Brown, they never got kicked off a plane (despite there being a police report claiming they were), and the person on the plane who wanted to get higher than the aircraft’s cruising altitude was the pilot. Uh huh. Unless the pilot’s name was “Captain Lindsay Lohan“, I’m having a hard time believing that story. After all, Miami to Cannes is a 10 hour flight. Who wouldn’t do that high out of their mind?
In the event you want to see what Chris Brown looks like when his head isn’t bobbing around like a cracked-out woodpecker, here he is at his birthday party last week.
