Chris Brown’s Girlfriend Makes Jokes About Aaliyah

The price of fame does not cost making a complete a$$ of yourself every time you get the opportunity, that has been proven by class acts, who are at least respectable most of the time.  But for some, it just does; to the extent that they actually have to drag the revered name of deceased R&B Singer Aaliyah into their fiascoes.

Karrueche Tran, who is no stranger to criticism, whether it be with regard to her name or her red carpet appearances with Chris Brown,  is in hot water after reportedly posting the following picture to her Instagram:

For those who may need a little help with this, Aaliyah was an American recording artist, dancer and actress that died tragically and in many people’s opinion, too soon, in a plane crash following her video for “Rock the Boat.”  People were very upset by Tran’s comment to say the least.

Though the video has since been taken down, Tran originally attempted to defend herself, saying the post was “just a joke” before going on to also joke about folks wishing that her plane would crash, as reported by Madam Noire.

Before singers like Ciara, Sevyn Streeter, and the list goes on and on of young solo women performers with a smooth sound, there was Aaliyah.  According to Wikipedia, Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001) was born in Brooklyn.  She made appearances on shows like “Star Search,” as early as the age of 10 and had a record deal by the age of 12.  Though Aaliyah’s life was short-lived, she sold over 30 million records.   According to Billboard, Aaliyah is listed as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years, and 27th most successful R&B artist in history.

Can someone please explain why anyone would think it funny to make fun of Aaliyah’s tragedy?
