People often ask me why I spend so much time “hating” on Chris Brown when the Rihanna incident was two years ago. Because apparently that’s an acceptable amount of time to forget brutally beating a woman and leaving her for dead after she peeped your phone. Short answer? He’s still giving interview like this to Page Six Magazine. (Via Us Magazine):
“At the end of the day,” muses the “Forever” singer, “if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool.”
… In the wake of that shocking scandal, Brown says “a handful of people stuck by me,” including fellow musicians Pitbull and producer Pharrell Williams.
Still, he complains that many folks “turn[ed] away. They don’t want to get involved with it because they don’t want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that.”
He doesn’t exactly fault those former friends for walking away after the assault — which he calls a “mishap.”
“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

Webster’s Dictionary defines mishap as “an unfortunate accident” or “bad luck” which somehow doesn’t quite apply to throwing a temper tantrum and biting a chick in the neck and ear after you’re done punching her. That more closely defines, oh I dunno, a crime. But semantics aside, let’s go back to Chris Brown saying he’s done apologizing because he’s in a “positive place” and more importantly doesn’t want to look like “a damn fool.” And he’s right. We all forget Chris Brown was the real victim here and people need to stop making him feel sorry about something he clearly has no remorse over. Can’t a man sell his albums and continue to think he did nothing wrong so that if a similar instance pops up, he’s not burdened by the thought of facing actual consequences? Otherwise, we’re just being racist. I didn’t want to be the one to say it.
