The fallout from singer Chris Brown‘s violent outburst after an interview on GMA continues. First Robin Roberts explained what happened and even invited Brown to appear on the show again “because we’d love to have another chat with him.” Now it’s Brown’s turn to speak out about his behavior.
Brown appeared on BET‘s 106 & Park and according to a transcript of his appearance said:
“First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions . . . because I’m disappointed in the way I acted.”
Brown apologized for getting emotional and for releasing “the anger that I had inside of me” as a result of the repeated questions regarding his domestic abuse incident with singer Rihanna. Addressing his fans, Brown said “Robin Roberts, do not send any threats (to her) . . . we need to be more positive and focus on the real issues in life.”
One of the real issues though is whether ABC News should be so forgiving of Brown’s behavior simply because of his celebrity status. In a convincing open letter to the producers of GMA, one furious critic wonders “what kind of pandering, pro-violence, egomania-enabling, f*cked up world without consequences (for a chosen few) do you live in, you assholes?” Although maybe the critic is just hopeful that such violent language can land him a guest spot on GMA too?
