Members of the Fruit Town Piru set say they've given Chris Brown a pass due to what he's done for their gang and the community.
An anonymous member or members of the Compton-based Fruit Town Piru set recently spoke with TMZ to clear up any questions about crooner Chris Brown’s gang ties. According to them, Brown was never officially initiated into their gang.
Additionally, they revealed that although Brown isn’t an official member of the Fruit Town Piru set, they have no issue with the Virginia songster throwing up gang signs and shouting out the Pirus due to what he’s done for that particular gang and the community.
According to TMZ, Breezy has hired several Fruit Town Piru members to work for him, he’s hung out with them, and also donated thousands of shoes to kids in Compton.
Over the past year, Brown has been pictured throwing up various gang signs and has also made possible Bloods references via his Instagram page.
In addition to various pictures and comments on Instagram, Brown was recently videotaped shouting out the Fruit Town Piru set during an afterparty for the BET Awards last month.
Video of the incident, which was posted by TMZ, can be found below.
Additionally, a lawsuit filed against Brown earlier this year due to a brawl at a basketball game states that the singer and those in his entourage are members of the Bloods.
