I generally have had very little comment about this situation but I have a few now.
1. Overall I think Chris actually handled the interview well. It was the rage afterward and the fact that noone seemed to be there (meaning none of his handlers) to calm him down is pretty troubling.
2. There is never any time that it's okay to hit a woman. That being said unfortunately the incident happened - 2 YEARS AGO -Once he answers the first question about it in a manner tthat says " I really want to talk about the album" and you say "okay thanks for answering that" there's no need to go back to that subject. Now it begins to look like this kid is being baited and I'm inclined to also say he's paid his price as defined by the courts as well as in the court of public opinion so let him get past it a little. He is going to have to deal with it in his own way for the rest of his life.
3. The fact that Chris Brown is labeled a thug and a woman beater, etc. is interesting in this age of Charlie Sheen and the attention he's getting for being a drug addict and having "accidentally" shot his then fiancee Kelly Preston and having numerous reports of abuse with his ex-wife Denise Richards and other porn star girlfriends or prostitutes. Charlie Sheen has sold out a national tour in 18 minutes and is appearing on the Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. with little negative backlash and Chris Brown is on the verge of being demonized again.
Again, It is never right to hit a woman. Just saying it seems like Chris Brown has paid his price, apologized and maybe his real problem is he's not a white actor.
What do you think?
