Chris Brown shouldn't expect an invite to the neighborhood barbeque this year.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the images of "grimacing, sharp-toothed, red-eyed goblins" painted on his retaining wall are scaring children and upsetting their parents.
"There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall - big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to," Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, told the Times.
The city of Los Angeles has fined Brown $376 for violating city code and demanded that he take down the offensive artwork within 30 days. However, his lawyer is appealing that ruling.
Brown's public artwork is more a nuisance than anything, but he's done plenty of questionable - and downright disturbing - things since his infamous incident with on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009.
Chris Brown's Vulgar Twitter Fight With Jenny Johnson
Twitter comedian Jenny Johnson had no idea what she was getting herself into when she replied to a tweet Brown sent in November 2012.
"I look old as f**k! I'm only 23..." Brown tweeted, prompting Johnson to reply with "I know! Being a worthless piece of s**t can really age a person."
Brown noticed the tweet and responded with a whole series of vulgar and sexually explicit tweets directed at the Texas woman.
"Take them teeth out when u S*cking my d**k H*e," he tweeted back.
He wasn't done there.
"I should fart while you're giving me top," he added, referring to oral sex.
He even brought his mom into it.
"Mom says hello," replied Brown. "She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to s--t right on the retina."
"She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to s**t right on the retina."
Johnson shrugged off his insults, but then his fans got in on the action and sent her death threats via the social media site.
"It's alarming how many death threats I'm receiving via @ replies," she tweeted afterward. "I encourage everyone, including @Twitter to look through them. Not cool."
Not cool at all.
Chris Brown 'Jumps' Frank Ocean Over a Parking Space
File this one under: "Dumbest reasons to get into a fist fight."
Brown reportedly jumped singer Frank Ocean over a recording studio parking spot in January 2013.
"Got jumped by chris and a couple guys. Lol," Ocean tweeted on Jan. 28. "Cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys."
Ultimately, Ocean decided against pressing charges.
"I'll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit," he wrote in a Tumblr post in early February. "Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace."
Chris Brown's Neck Tattoo That Looks Like a Bloodied Rihanna
Brown has repeatedly said that he's a different man than the one who beat up then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009. However, some people questioned that when he showed off a new tattoo in September 2012.
The tattoo - on his neck - looked eerily similar to the photo of a bruised and bloodied Rihanna.
He denied it, though.
"I'm an artist and this is art. Dia de los Muertos," he tweeted amid the furor. His rep said it was a sugar skull inspired by "a MAC cosmetics design he saw."
The tattoo does look like the MAC image, but we hope he really thinks about it before getting another "inspired" tattoo. Either that, or get one of something innocent, like puppies and kittens.
Tell us: Should Chris Brown be forced to paint over his artwork?
