Anderson Cooper Takes Swipe at Chris Brown, Rom-Com Role

by at . Comments

Deservedly or not, Chris Brown continues to bear the brunt of media scrutiny over an event that took place almost 2.5 years ago now. Case in point:

He got a role in a romantic comedy. Good for him, right? Sure, but Anderson Cooper still took a shot at him and referenced the Rihanna incident.

"Ladies and gentlemen, particularly ladies, Chris Brown has been cast in a movie. And not just any movie, it's a romantic comedy based on a self-help book about relationships," Cooper said recently on CNN's AC 360.

  • That Silver Fox
  • Team Breezy

"And I, for one, can not imagine why this did not happen sooner because if there's one thing you can say about Chris Brown, who's currently on probation for viciously assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, he just oozes romance."

Ouch.

Cooper went on to point out one of Brown's early YouTube apologies to Rihanna and fans as another point of conflict. To Chris' credit, he responded to the CNN anchor's comments on Twitter in the best possible way.

"I guess people need ratings!" Brown wrote. "Lol! It's cool. Much Love."

Wow. If he acts like that more often, people really will leave him alone! He can be taught! A ratings joke back at AC is harmless enough, right?

Hey, at least he brushed it off and didn't play the victim, didn't complain and didn't blow up. It's a step in the right direction if nothing else.

As for the new movie, it is called Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, a film adaptation of Steve Harvey's bestselling book of the same name.

Production is already underway in Los Angeles and the film is slated to hit theaters in April 2012. BET first reported Chris getting the role.

@ Stacey on Sept 1, Amen girl. While Chris was an idiot for allowing his temper to get the best of him,he as paid over and over again by "The Media". While he was dead wrong for hitting a woman who is no wall flower and possibly pushed him tooooo far, he has not done worse than soooo many other artist out there. We have alot of criminals in the entertainment industry who/some have got away with even murder/petafilia (no spell check) and more. They have been allowed by "The Media" to move forward with their lives and they where not as young as Brown when they committed their crimes. Why can't we just let a brotha get on with it? Is it because it's "Miss Rhianna", please people. Anderson Cooper, I used be a fan, think you are beautiful to look at, but please stick to reporting real news, stay away from "Entertainment News". This fan, you've just lost.

@Stacey..if you don't want responses to your post, then don't post.
Do you know Rihanna? Do you know Chris Brown? We can only draw our conclusions from the media reports. Chris Brown was wrong on every level. Hitting a woman the way he did - come on now!! Yeah, he is young but he isn't stupid! He knew it was wrong. Was he not on some talk show discussing how he saw his Mom being hit and how he knew it was wrong? I have a daughter and God help the fool, who think he can hit/beat her up! From the tone of your post, you appear to be a fan of Chris Brown. Don't let that cloud your judgement to what you know is wrong.

Love Anderson Copper; just didn't know he could jerk up the jerks that cruelly.

I was never convinced he was truly remorseful and probably will not for quite a while. If I had to guess, AC was merely pointing out the irony of Brown's involvement of a romantic comedy when less than 3 years ago had that incident with Rhianna. And don't play the race card here ( "it's 'cause he's black?!") because any person respecting others do not change in just less than 3 years.

Hitting a women or any human being is compeltely wrong. But When Some One let there Anger get the best of them they can become very dangerous. As we can see chris brown is still muturing and is trying his best he has looked to religion and even took therapy for what he has done. If rihanna can forgive him then so can we its not us he need acceptence from because for every hater there are ten lovers but he need acceptence from his self he is the one who has to live his life. I don't think he would hurt anyone else nd rude comments don't help the situation.
