If Chris Brown ever wants to be remembered for something besides beating Rihanna, flying into a rage because people ask him about it won’t help.
We’ve tried to temper our criticism of the guy, given that it’s been two years since the assault took place. But his own actions make it impossible here.
Upset by on-air questions about Rihanna on Good Morning America, Brown lost it behind the scenes, smashing a window and storming off shirtless.
Just a few hours ago, Chris performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she asked about the Rihanna incident.
Brown tried to redirect questions to focus on his new album, F.A.M.E., but Roberts continued to ask about Chris’ legal issues stemming from the attack.
After the interview, Brown absolutely freaked, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup called security.
Brown was so out of control, he smashed a window with a chair in his dressing room, shattering the glass. Some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.
By the time security rushed in, Brown ripped off his shirt and peaced out, blowing off a second performance he was supposed to do for ABC’s website.
Brown’s probation for felony assault requires him to obey all laws. It remains to be seen if charges will be pressed after this debacle, but … wow. Just wow.
An hour ago, after the fact, Brown Tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.”
He promptly deleted it, Tweeting instead: “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”
While one can understand Chris’ frustration in being asked to relive the events of February 2009 so often, get a freaking grip dude. Maybe then they’d stop.
Seriously, way to turn your image around. Impressive display today. Maybe there’s more to it than we know now, but it doesn’t look good for Chris.
There’s a portion of the interview that preceded the meltdown …
What do you think? Are you on Chris Brown’s side?
