I got into an argument about the Chris Brown incident with a friend of mine last night. It was a friendly argument, of course. It was more like a disagreement, really. I had no idea Chris Brown was going to be on Larry King (Wednesday night) last night before our dispute.
Anyway, my friend was telling me how much of a monster Chris Brown was after what he'd done to then-girlfriend Rihanna (last February). During the Larry King interview, Brown admitted guilt and apologized for assaulting Rihanna (Robyn Fenty). He also said that he didn't remember hitting ole girl.
That's one of the things I told my friend last night. I was like, "He was drunk," I said. "Chris Brown had no idea what he was doing. Some people do unbelievable things when they drink too much." I also asked if everyone that made a mistake after being under the influenced should be crucified. Chris Brown wasn't the first, and unfortunately won't be the last person to physically abuse his or her significant other after losing control during a heated argument... while under the influence.
"I'm in shock, because, first of all, that's not who I am as a person, and that's not who I promise I want to be," Chris Brown told Larry King in an exclusive interview that aired Wednesday night. I just don't know what to think. I'm just like, wow. It's crazy to me."
I also said that I didn't condone what Chris Breezy did on that night in February. I don't agree with hitting females at all. Just walk away... I also don't want to say Chris Brown's career should be over because of his mistake.
Could've done more for his cause
I thought that Chris definitely could've said more to defend his side. I don't know if we wasn't allowed to talk about that night. But I do know that he repeatedly told Larry that he respected Rihanna's privacy, as well as his own, too much not to discuss that night at all.
According to a sworn statement by Los Angeles Police detective DeShon Andrews, the incident began when Rihanna found a text message on Brown's cell phone from "a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with." The pair argued while in a sports car driven by Brown, the police statement said. It went on to describe the assault in great detail, saying Brown punched Rihanna -- identified in the statement as Robyn F. -- numerous times and put her in a head lock, restricting her breathing and causing her to start to lose consciousness.
Larry even asked Brown what caused him to threatento beat her and kill her. He also asked him about at least two other domestic violence incidents before the February attack for which Brown was sentenced. Breezy didn't want to talk about that either.
I just thought he could've made things a little better by telling more. He didn't have to discuss everything. Just something... beside apologies. I don't know. I just know that he made a mistake. He will probably never make that mistake again.
I'm just wondering if this would be as big of a deal if it were Rhi-Rhi from Michigan that got beat up that night, and not superstar Rihanna.
