Rosie O'Donnell defends Chris "Bobby" Brown
Chris Brown has an unlikely new ally – Rosie O’Donnell is defending the young singer, who has been plagued with bad press since the 2009 beating of his then girlfriend, Rihanna, insisting: “He’s a victim too.”
Rosie, never one to shy away from controversy, made several comments on her Sirius XM show Rosie Radio, before following on with a series of tweets
"I just don't know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else," she said during the broadcast Monday, addressing the Rihanna incident as well as Brown’s recent temper tantrum that resulted in a broken window in his dressing room after he stormed off the set of Good Morning America.
When Rosie's executive producer implied there is a racial aspect at play, she agreed, replying: "I totally think there is, and I also think it's why he felt he was safer with Robin Roberts [who is also African-American and conducted Brown’s ill fated GMA interview]." Rosie added that she felt "mildly angry" at Robin while watching her interview Chris. - Full Read - Via Radar Online
