Naturally, the immediate reaction of every Chris Brown fan is that Good Morning America ambushed, or “baited,” him with questions surrounding the night he bit Rihanna in the face and neck after viciously beating her for peeping his cellphone. Turns out, like any talk show interview, GMA approved the questions beforehand with the celebrity so they could sit there and toss him softballs preventing any sort of violent outburst where, I dunno, let’s say window gets broken and shirts suddenly disappear. TMZ reports:
Sources tell TMZ … Roberts insists both she and other “GMA” staff members spoke with Chris before the interview and asked if it would be OK to fire off “a few questions” about the Rihanna incident … and Chris approved.
As TMZ first reported, Brown flipped out after the interview — and apparently smashed a window in his dressing room.
Robin is telling people at the show she did NOT try to set him up … and insists, “I’m pulling for the guy.”
For a media that’s “trying to bring him down,” Robin Roberts really was pulling for him if you watch the interview. Christ, she fucking laughs with him when he keeps trying to change the subject back to the album. Because – Haha! – isn’t the life of a celebrity so deliciously comical? “Look, he’s trying to make millions of dollars by not showing remorse for beating the living hell out of a woman. My what a hilarious rogue. I hope he pulls through this alright.”
