Chris Brown Had The Utterly Wrong Reaction To Rihanna’s Tearful Oprah Interview (In Other News, Water Is Wet)

Earlier today, Jenni wrote a great post clarifying the reasons why we hate Chris Brown: not because he made a terrible mistake, but because he refuses to take any real responsibility for that mistake, and insists that anyone who thinks he should is just a sad, jealous hater. (But don’t worry, he forgives you!)

Since then, Chris Brown has gone on to prove the “haters” right once again by responding to Rihanna’s tearful Oprah interview with a statement that everyone needs to leave him alone. (The response came from “a source close to Chris Brown,” but it seems like it definitely came on his orders.)

“Watching [Rihanna's interview with Oprah] made him realize he made a big mistake and he’s been paying for it ever since. He’s working hard, in the studio, dancing, doing everything he can to rebuild his name and career and I think he been successful in doing all that. Y’all should be talking about his road to recovery and how he’s been a man and made s–t right. He and Ri are cool, more cool than anyone will know. She forgave the [boy] the minute that s–t went down, so what that say about their relationship?”

How could we not forgive Chris Brown when he’s been dancing? And working hard to rebuild his career? And not, you know, going to therapy, or volunteering at women’s shelters, or doing anything that actually relates to taking responsibility for what he did?

Once again: just because a woman who is in love with her abuser and has a history of violence in her family forgives her abuser as soon as he’s done beating her up, does not mean he is not morally culpable. If anything, it shows just how deep the manipulation has gone, because people in their right minds don’t instantly forgive someone for putting them in the hospital.

Like I said, we don’t hate Chris Brown for his original crime at this point, but for how he’s been behaving ever since. He’ll never be penalized by the mainstream music industry when there’s money to be made off of him, so I’m going to do what I can to call him out on his bullshit, and I’m not going to stop until he stops spewing it. He can “forgive” me all he wants.

    Chris Brown’s “road to recovery”? What is he recovering from, douchery? In which case he’s doing a horrible job. I wonder if that was anywhere near as painful as Rihanna’s road to recovery when she had to let her face heal after he beat the crap out of her.

    • Jenni

      I’m sure his hands hurt! You know, pummeling someone doesn’t come naturally to everyone.

    OMG who cares ? Sorry but we don’t care about what are you thinking ! Rihanna forgive Chris Brown … He apologizes to everybody ! You don’t know about them why are you talking about something you don’t know ? People like you make me laugh ! Stop talking about Chris Brown’s PRIVATE life ! Enjoy his music and shut up !
    Just don’t judge people start to looking at what you’v done !

    • Jenni

      Let me clear up your question. We care.

    • bebop

      I never attacked anyone…guess maybe I can judge this one? Enjoy his music? There is nothing I could enjoy about this prick. Forgiveness and apologies are fine, but that doesn’t change what he did. Abuse will NEVER be forgotten…Chances are very great he will do it again (recidivism rates here are second only to child molesting) !

  • Alex

    Please..STFU! half of US should be in jail for the things that we have done, but weren’t caught for doing it! So back up off this man! You ALL lie, still, Have a abortions, have pre-marital sex, *ck, F*uck, are homo’s etc..and you are judging him?! Get off this man’s D*ck or suck it!..God bless you Chris and RiRi..he has no respect a person, what he’ll do for one he’ll do for another..Get YOUR house in order before you judge! HOLLA!

    • Jenni

      So you’re comparing abusing a woman to pre-marital sex?

    • Alex

      A sin is a sin..wrong is wrong is what I’m saying..get it?

    • Jenni

      No, I disagree. There are different levels of sin. I think most people would agree with me that murder’s worse than stealing. Stealing is worse than envy.

    • Alex

      Honey..it’s clear you don’t know the word, because if you did, you would know no sin is greater than the other..You keep agreeing with PEOPLE..those same people will have you in a place you wish you weren’t.

    • Jenni

      Oh I don’t know the word sin in the biblical sense. I’m Jewish so we don’t believe in everything in the bible, or Hell. Which works out well!

    • Alex

      It all makes perfect sense then! lol..smh

    • Jenni

      I know, us Jews are sneaky. Just sittin’ and bloggin’ the devil’s word.

    • Alex

      ..the “word” I’m referring to is called the B.I.B.L.E,heard of it? You may want to invest in a copy.

    • Varsico

      hah! the ignorance!

      Oh well, it’s not like we could expect anything else from someone who’s defending Chris Brown.

    • bebop

      I am not now, nor would I ever, be atop Chris Brown”s penis…

  • Alex

    *steal

    Team Breezy and RiRi! Owww!

    This is why America jails are filled more than aby Country, because wr don’t believe in or support redemption. We support condemnation not reconcilliation. It is really sad. Your article is full of lies as Chris did take responsibility for his actions, and did not reflect it on to Rihanna although he could have to save face. You don’t know the whole story of whateas happening in their relationship. There is a reason why she has forgave him. Let this go or we will teach or children that in life if they make a mistake they can’t make up for it. When that hopelessness is there thay is when we get consyant repeat offenders. Stop praying for his downfall instead pray he has changed. He has went through counseling andhas publically said he was wrong. Remember one day it could be your child you want to be forgiven.
