There’s never a dull moment with R&B singer Chris Brown (pictured below) who this go-round is in trouble with the city of Los Angeles for having a mural painted on a wall outside of his Hollywood Hills home (pictured above) that is terrifying the neighborhood kids, reports the L.A. Times.

Neighbors have reportedly complained in vain to Brown about the very prominent mural, which depicts giant blob-like monsters with bloodshot bulging eyes and huge fangs. So they reportedly took their gripes to local authorities.

The fine is for unpermitted and excessive signage, and the agency ordered him to remove the art within 30 days.

If Brown fails to comply with the agency’s order, the fine will go north of where it presently stands.

According to the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, Patti Negri and many of the area’s residents have found the images on Brown’s wall to be distressing and feel that the neighborhood children should not be subjected to such a ghoulish sight.  “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,” Negri told the L.A. Times.

Brown took his feelings about the campaign to Twitter and posted the following tweet on Sunday:

Keep em inside then! It’s art. There are scarier creatures on Harry potter. Get a fucking life!

Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, told the L.A. Times that his client is not backing off from this fight and that his client is being harassed. “I’m scared of neighborhood busybodies like this,” Geragos said. “They’ve called animal control. They have sicced parking [enforcement] on him, and now they reached the heights of ridiculousness here. Shame on them.”

Negri, on the other hand, is keeping hope alive that Brown will try to take on a more kumbaya attitude toward his neighbors and perhaps soften the artwork.  “I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change, but hopefully and maybe, he’ll just see the light and decide to be a good neighbor,” she said. “We’re happy to have him — if he just tones it down,” says Negri.
