Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

The performer was in the city for an appearance at an event in connection with the Howard University homecoming.

Court documents outline two differing versions of the incident, with the 20-year-old victim, saying Mr. Brown and then Mr. Hollosy punched him in the face after he tried to get in a picture with Mr. Brown.

But Mr. Brown and Mr. Hollosy told police that the man had tried to get on the singer’s tour bus, and that was why the bodyguard punched him, breaking his nose, court documents state.

Mr. Brown denied hitting the man or being part of the confrontation. A woman who asked the singer for a photo with him and her friend told police that Mr. Brown threw the first punch at Mr. Parker after he tried to get into the picture with the group.
