Is He Really THAT Stupid? : Chris Brown gets tattoo of battered woman

I mean really? I don't even know if it's true but he had to know what people were going to think..Maybe that doesn't matter but yikes and a half does it feel wrong! It has me wondering if I'm a hypocrite for liking Chris Brown's music while condemning is vile / moronic acts. Chris Brown just needs to stop...

How do you guys feel? I'm admittedly vexed.
