Chris Brown apologizes for his behavior and Robin Roberts invites him back

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Chris Brown is now, reportedly, apologizing for the shocking and unacceptable behavior that he displayed at the ABC studios is New York a couple of days ago and Robin Roberts has reportedly invited him back.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if Chris Brown was genuinely upset and that was how he displayed his emotions, then he needs help. We are all responsible for our emotions-period. No amount of blaming, criticizing and judging of others as an excuse for our behavior makes them responsible for it.

I watched the video clip of some of Chris Brown’s interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts. It is my opinion that Robin persisted on staying on the topic of Rihanna a little longer than was necessary, to the extent that it was uncomfortable for both her and Chris. That being said though, I still maintain that Chris Brown’s alleged temper tantrum which led to him smashing a window and storming out onto the street topless is not even close to acceptable.

We are all responsible for how we choose to express our emotions and if we do so in a destructive manner, that is an indication that we need to make different choices. If Chris Brown was so frustrated by Robin Roberts’ questions, he could have gone and written her a strongly worded letter to let her know or he could have gone and released some of that energy by exercising or maybe even writing a song, but throwing a temper tantrum and destroying other people’s property just doesn’t “cut it”.

I feel compelled to note though, that the last time a woman (Rihanna) irritated Chris, he physically assaulted her but this time he decided to take his frustrations out on a window. This may be a step in the right direction. In my desperate attempt to look at the bright side, I’m applauding Chris for not attacking Robin and instead, punching a window. Although this is the lesser of the two evils, Chris is still a long way from being the role model that he could be.
