ABC appears willing to forgive and forget when it comes to Chris Brown.
Despite Brown’s meltdown on Good Morning America this week, the network said it will not be filing a criminal complaint against the singer, who is still set to perform on the popular Dancing With the Stars next Tuesday night.
Both are huge breaks for a guy whose career needs all he can get.
Should DWTS pull the plug on this dude?
Although he kept it together on-air, Brown stormed off the GMA set after anchor Robin Roberts asked him questions about his 2009 assault against Rihanna.
Despite okaying this beforehand, he then reportedly retreated to his dressing room where he broke a window with a chair, tore his shirt off and peaced out.
While he escaped without any legal or direct career ramifications, some fans and rival network execs are not happy with ABC’s decision to let him do DWTS.
“Dancing With the Stars is one of the biggest shows on TV, and if they allow him to promote his music on it, he should definitely be asked to apologize.”
Some fans are even contacting ABC directly via email to thwart his performance, but for now, it looks like he’ll perform on the results show as planned.
Whether he does or not, this can’t be the press Chris hoped for when his new album, F.A.M.E., dropped this week. Guy really needs to pull it together.
As we said earlier, if Chris really wants to turn things around, he should look no further for inspiration than another fallen, recovering star: Michael Vick.
