Chris Brown got a case of the angries and went all HULK SMASH, HULK ANGRY on a cooler and a window at the Good Morning America studios after Robin Roberts asked him questions that Brown and his team approved. ABC confirmed that not only did they get the questions approved, but Brown’s team did not offer talking point sheet. Chris told BET “106 and Park” that they did submit a talking points that focused only on the album. (Click HERE for the original reported including a photo of the damage and a video of interview…)
He started with a respectable apology that sounded like he was going to man-up and take responsibility.
“First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions because I was disappointed in the way I acted.”
Then he began to try and justify his actions…
“A lot of people don’t know what went down,” he continued. “When I do shows or when I do interviews, we send out like a talking point sheet. And if the network or whoever isn’t compliant with what we want to do so that we can equally accomplish a goal, we usually kind of back out. Everything that was sent to me was about the album. That’s what we were talking about,” he said of the interview. “So when the interview proceeded, I was thrown off. I felt like, ‘OK, they told us this to get us on the show and exploit me.’ I took it very, very hard. I kept my composure throughout the whole interview … And when I got back I just let off steam in the back. I didn’t physically hurt anyone. I just wanted to release the anger inside me. I got very emotional.”
Ok, Imma gonna go all Oprah… Again, I get that the topic is old news and I am sure he is tired of being persecuted for his past actions. However, there is a difference between “blowing off steam” and acting like a child throwing a tantrum. He has no one to blame for his choices and actions. Even if ABC failed to mention their line of questioning (which I doubt) or treated you unjustly…there is a way to handle things with class and maturity.
