Remember when Rosie was a lovable tv show flinging toys at her audience? Remember her subsequent morph into lesbian rage filled wildebeest? Yeah, that is still going on. This time she is basically calling Chris Brown haters racist.
During her Sirius XM show, ‘Rosie Radio,’ the former funny lady tackled the topic of Chris Brown. O’Donnell felt that Good Morning America was responsible for Chris’ breakdown and abuse of chair/window/cooler (despite his camp pre-approving the questions and Robin Roberts attempt at being delicate).
“I felt mildly angry at Robin Roberts. I felt like writing her and going: ‘Can you take a look at this again and see if maybe you find — in any way — your responsibility in this?’”
She furthers her support for Chris by justifying his violent behavior after the interview didn’t go the way he wanted it to.
“Part of me wanted to take a chair and throw it through the window at The View after all that happened. But, you know, there are no windows down there in that rat-infested cellar. Remember that cellar we were in?” O’Donnell said to her radio producer. There were no windows. It was like a prison.”
As if that weren’t enough, she prefaced all of her notions with the race card and the inevitable comparison to Charlie Sheen.
“I don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anybody else.” When Rosie’s executive producer implied there is a racial aspect at play, Rosie replied: “I totally think there is, and I also think it’s why he felt he was safer with Robin Roberts.”
I am all about intelligent arguments and different points of view. I get that her point is that Chris is still being dragged out for his past actions. Understood. But, once again, his violent behavior surfaces and we are expected to just ignore that? It’s obvious I am not a Chris Brown fan, but it has nothing to do with race/gender/religion or any other reason other than the fact that he is an egotistical, self centered, lady beater who will fake tears for a Michael Jackson tribute to regain popularity and only seems “sorry” that his violent behavior affected his career. The fact the he launched into a Twitter tirade/feud with Raz-B using gay references to attack him is the icing on the hate cake.
As for the comparisons to Charlie Sheen…I don’t get it. Charlie is getting boo-ed out of shows because people are finally getting that this is just a sad, troubled man high on his ego and whatever he found under the kitchen sink suffering from delusions of grandeur. People are laughing at him. Not with him. Chris beat up a green room and made himself look like a janky Hulk with a case of daddy issues and he has the #1 album. Really…who is “winning” here?
Either way, I am sure Chris is stamping a “no, thanks” on Rosie’s support while backing away slowly and forcing a smile.
