On Saturday afternoon (August 16), Chris Brown and a gang of his celebrity friends gathered in a charity game of flag football. The event took place in Los Angeles at Occidental College’s Jack Kemp Stadium, where the crooner went against his opponents in a fun-filled game.
Brown (who was spotted canoodling with on-and-off again girlfriend Karrueche) summoned participants for a brief moment of solidarity. The star-studded crowd –– including Nelly, Wale, Lil Mama, Trey Songz and Game –– protested the recent police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mississippi, while throwing up their hands in support of the slain teen’s family and the city of Ferguson.
