Sherri Shepherd Defends Chris Brown on The View, Calls Singer a "Role Model"

by at . Comments

Sherri Shepherd is on Team Breezy.

The View host has been vocal in defense of Chris Brown before, so it's no surprise that she stood up for the star in the wake of this week's Grammy lovefest backlash.

All Brown did was show up at the award show, perform and win. No controversy at all. Yet his mere presence at the event after his 2009 attack on Rihanna upset many.

While Shepherd criticized female fans who Tweet about how they'd let Chris beat them all night (among other things), Shepherd defended Brown from criticism.

He may even be a role model, she says. Why?

"There may be a child in a situation of going through abuse that Chris Brown has gone through. His mother was abused right in front of his very eyes six years before this happened to Rihanna. He used to wet his pants from the fear," Shepherd says.

"He was a victim! He became an offender. He did what the courts told him to do. He went to 52 weeks, a year of domestic prevention counseling."

That's all true, and she makes a strong case. But on the flip side, critics will point to the (perceived) utter lack of responsibility Brown has taken for his actions.

Behind-the-scenes blowups, arrogance and a lack of remorse (real or otherwise) contribute to the lack of forgiveness in people's eyes. Not heartlessness.

What do you think? Is Chris Brown a role model?


The definition of role model must be very different in Sherri Shepherd's world. Maybe because Chris Brown didn't actually kill Rihanna he should be called a role model?...


@d947- Tell me about it- I hate to even think of the mess Jones made.


what have you done wrong in life and needed a second chance. Begged God for a second chance.OH maybe you never got caught or convicted. We can always see others mistakes while we overlook our own.


Brown is a loser and T-JONES has Crabs!


Sherry is an effing idiot! To defend that moron is one thing,but to have the audacity to call him a "role model" is just unacceptable. Being a role model would be a person who did the OPPOSITE of what the situation he grew up with, not fall right into. She needs to go racist idiot.


Calling a women a Black stupid b@#h is outragous..


he needs time to live down his previous actions before he gets to 'role model' status; and yet he should obey the law.if he has been, then people should let him be.


Ok then @piss what ever your name is, please give me all details. Please teach me, thats if you know the whole bible. I see that you are judgemental person that who seems to not give out truthful information very well. Sap, you want me to drop my computer in the tube. Please brighten my brain, that if you can!


worry about yourselves


All these comments all full a BULL,just a bunch of hateful,judgemental,jealous white folks who have nothing going on in there sad pathetic wonder bread lives.anytime you see a successful black all of you try to tear him down simply because your awkward no rhythm having asses can't accomplish what we can.A brotha can't even walk down the street without you accusing him of something,but yet you have White actors sleeping with prostitutes using drugs like its candy and beating and killing there wives,then go on talk shows looking stupid or doing whack crappy one man shows that bomb in every city but that's OK.all of you need to seriously wake up and look in your on backyards before you talk about some one Else's.
