Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino Says Chris Brown’s ‘Back to Sleep’ ‘Perpetuates Rape Culture’

Chris Brown, despite being a profitable pop tour de force, is not exactly known for his equal-minded views regarding men and women. To that end, Best Coast‘s Bethany Cosentino called out the singer’s single “Back to Sleep” today on Twitter, reciting its questionable lyrics (“just let me rock, f**k you back to sleep girl, don’t say a word no, girl don’t you talk”) and observing the way they “perpetuate rape culture.” She continued: “This isn’t just about that idiot tho- the fact that’s a song in popular culture that some A&R person was like ‘this is great’ saddens me.” See Cosentino’s full discussion below:
