A Low Down Shirty Shame: Chris Brown was sentenced this week for his brutal February attack on Rihanna, receiving five years' probation and six months' community labor, along with a stern warning to keep away from his ex-girlfriend. The lack of jail time has some wondering whether his punishment was sufficiently harsh, but our question is whether public humiliation was part of his penalty. If so, props to whoever put together this head-to-toe sartorial shaming. From the tip of the singer's dorkily perched hat to the visual assault of his crazily patterned, Bill Cosby-ish cardigan and the "Revenge of the Nerds: The Preschool Years" coordinating aqua sneakers, big boy short pants and hoisted, just-out-of-the-tube socks, it's a mortification-palooza, one that with any luck will continue until he's served every last, character-building day of his sentence.
