Chris Rock cracked a joke about Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna on Sunday, two days after Brown’s probation finally ended more than six years after the infamous violence. The comedian tweeted a picture from Brown’s court appearance on Friday, captioning it, “Now he’s clear to fight the winner of mayweather Pacquaio.” That, of course, is a reference to the highly anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Most people found Rock’s joke to be funny, although some commenters took issue with the quip, given the brutal realities of what Brown did to Rihanna back in 2009.

As Gossip Cop reported, the Brown-Rihanna case was finally closed on Friday when Judge James R. Brandlin decided to take Brown off probation, determining that he’d properly completed his community service requirements and that questions about his compliance with other rules had been answered.

Brown was obviously thrilled, tweeting, “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!” After the court appearance, his lawyer, Mark Geragos, told reporters, “I couldn’t be more delighted… He is in a spot right now and a place right now that I couldn’t be prouder of him.” See Chris Rock’s joke about the situation below, and tell us what you think.
