Rosie O'Donnell Responds to My Chris Brown Blog
The one in which I quoted her radio remarks saying that Chris Brown may be getting some racist treatment in the media.
For those who didn't see the comment she left on that particular blog, I print it here in full.
"here is what i think michael musto
yes chris brown and rihanna had a violent relationship sadly many children who are raised in violent homes as chris and rihanna were grow up to replicate the pain they have lived. they had a fight in the car both had wounds rihanna's blacked eye swollen sad face was heartbreaking to see for every woman every child that has ever been hit
he hit her chris brown turned himself in he released a statement -
'Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.' Brown released a two-minute video on his official YouTube page apologizing to fans and Rihanna for the domestic altercation, expressing the incident as his 'deepest regret' and saying that he has repeatedly apologized to Rihanna and 'accepts full responsibility'
he did all that was expected of him he was commended by the judge
he spoke to larry king for an hour with his mother spoke of the pain and past the how and the now
he eventually gave robin roberts an in depth 20/20 interview where he spoke all about the entire rhianna abuse incident
is it unreasonable of chris to assume that he could now 2 years later release his cd without having to focus on that day
i assume he trusted robin show biz trust - u think u r on the same side be careful
- having interviewed celebrities for 6 years - that a segment producer told the publicist there would be one mention maybe - but then it was ALL about the cd - FAME
do u think chris was nervous? he looked nervous to me? he looked like a teenager do u think he felt safe live on tv? do u think he was prepared to once again talk in depth about rihanna?
so they roll the tape and there it is in the intro and they r back live first ? out - robin asks a long winded one about the restraining order... and then goes on to bring it up 6 more times.
and he sat hunched over - with new white hair and i wanted to hug him like his mom did - i bet
shame yes chris brown has shame we all do
me - u - chris and robin
he was then able to perform his song - which he did he went back to the dressing room - and cursed and yelled and threw some furniture around a chair hit a window - it broke - no one was hurt he took off his shirt - and walked away from the studio
my point maybe not well said on the radio
yes there r strands of racism running thru here of young black men seen nightly in handcuffs on the local news of the thug/angel paradigm tupac lived
ji never met chiris brown i never knew his music i bought his cd last week i bought rihanna's too
this is reality tv
i have no desire to b right this is only how i feel
maybe angry that robin did not have his back but perhaps expects me to have had hers point is we r all brown
chris or jackson
compassion - understanding - the only goal"
