Are we cool with this now?

I don’t want to be a stickler for political correctness or social decency or anything (what am I, some kind of nerd?) but NBC putting money in Chris Brown’s pocket to use his song during the Emmys last night seems at the very least, insensitive.

But what do I know, I can’t keep up with the kids these days.  Are we cool with dudes beating up their girlfriends now?  Someone has to tell me these things, I’m not on Twitter.  Can I get some sort of newsletter or something?  Good thing this Emmy producer is more on top of things than I am.  (His wife tried to tell him that it might be nice to pay a musician who doesn’t bash their girlfriend’s head in, but it’s really hard to understand someone with a fat lip.)
