Chris Brown apologizes in statement

February 15th, 2009 // 157 Comments

One week after allegedly assaulting Rihanna during an argument, Chris Brown has finally issued a statement apologizing for his actions – by downplaying them:

“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds.”

Okay, phew, he said God and his mom are helping him. Because had he just said a licensed therapist with a background in domestic abuse, I’d have to question the sincerity of his statement. But now, I’m pretty much convinced to have a daughter and let her date Chris Brown tonight. Who wants in?

    God’s own is first again!

  2. Brianna

    I can’t wait to hear all the details.

  3. Animal Hunter

    Typical ape never even expressed any sorrow except for his own woes. A coward and disgrace. I hope he dies alone in agony. Sorry worthless typical punk.

  4. Danielle

    That’s fucking bullshit. I doubt he really cares, just trying to cover his ass because no one wants anything to do with him even more now.

    I read about this somewhere else, and apparently Kanye West feels we should all give Chris a break… because you know… beating the shit out of your girlfriend really is such a minor thing. What a douche.

    Also that statement don’t mean shit, it came from a public relations firm hired to do “crisis management”… some guy needs to kick his ass.

  6. God should spenk him in front of his mom!

    Correction: The pencil neck little punk is sorry he got caught; most black males keep this behavior a secret as best they can but in reality it’s prevalent among knuckledragging neanderthal black males.

    Like most black males (refuse to call them men) his brain is located in his penis and he feels like he owns his women. They treat dogs better than they treat their women. Chris Brown should be shot on sight.

    Fish you read my mind. Nothing like having and imaginary figure that lives in the sky counsel you so you know next time that its bad to kick the shit out of a woman. I’m glad God was there for you Chris Brown, crisis averted. Now, go tell Santa Clause you have anger issues.

  9. Chris Brown fights girls, what a man!


    can you prove that you exist?

  10. A

    Yeah, that is right, hide behind God, just like rapist, murderers, child molesters and ruthless terrorists. Karma is a scorn b*tch and soon will be coming after you Chris Brown.

  11. A

    Oh and PS. Chris Brown, IF there is a God then I am pretty sure he has reserved you a one way ticket to HELL.

  12. FDW

    If that skinny little pencil neck weakling were ti hit a man, he would hurt his and and the man would snap his little skinny arms and neck. Chris Brown should have a fair trial and a swift hanging.

    The bible approves of thiat behavior and also approves of slavery. The bible is a guidebook for slavery. It’s extremely ironic to hear blacks, native americans and other oppressed people supporting the same book that was used against them.

    As for Chris Brown, he’s a punk who doesn’t have the guts to fight men.

  14. S

    JSD – shut the fuck up, you ignorant, racist bigot. You make me ashamed to be white.

    Yes, Chris brown deserves the biggest ass-kicking in the world, and he certainly needs some jail time. But his race has nothing to do with the fact that he’s an abuser. Men of ALL races abuse women, INCLUDING white men.

    One in four women is the victim of a sexual assault in her life time. I’m one of those women, and guess what? The guy who did it wasn’t black. He was my abusive white boyfriend.

  15. gawd

    Chris Brown is obviously a man of god; next he’ll be caught molesting children. It’s the X-tian way.

  16. me

    Anyone posting after me sucks on Chris Brown’s violent penis and swallows his negroid juice

  19. Obama Worshippers Suck Penis

    Chris Brown is a typical DemoCrap Obama-voting piece of shit

  20. Just goes to show all the fucking religious retards use their religion as a crutch to do bad shit, then “repent”

    Fucking hypocritical bible humpers.

  21. HaHaHa

    Half-assed apology..
    Now put yo money where yo mouf is..LoL

    REMORSE..must come with positive forward momentum.
    Getting “help” not a 7Day thing.

    {we’ll all be watching Mr. Brown}.

    Let’s wait and see how he (more like his handlers) continues to handle this.

    Can you say..”Damage Control”..?

    Chris Brown – He ain’t outta da woods..yet. an extensive calling.

    See the Forest thru the brotha.

    #5, Kanye said nothing like that….

    From E! Online:

    “But Rihanna’s former tour mate, Kanye West, has a very different response to the situation.
    ‘She has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time and, in that sense, I feel like that’s my baby sis and I would do any and everything to help her in any situation,’ the “Stronger” wordsmith told E! News’ Ryan Seacrest this morning. ‘I don’t want to speak more into the specifics with that situation, but all I’ll say is it’s just so devastating.
    ‘I feel like, just as a person, I don’t care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald’s, that should never happen. It should never come to that place.’ ”

    Get your shit straight.

  23. JSD

    JSD, you ignorant slut, black males feel like they own their women. Just because a white cracker redneck did the same thing to you doesn’t mean it’s not prevalent among blacks.

    Their brain is located in their penis, they own women, they riot and loot when they don’t get their way. They invade homes and rob and terrorize the occupants. They would rather pretend to be gangstas than attend school and they expect something for nothing. Of course there are crackers who behave that way too (rednecks) but it is much more prevalent among black males. If you don’t know that then you must only know a few token blacks to pretend you’re not a racist yourself.

  24. Screw your daughter, I’m going on a date with him. Wait until he finds out about my Vagina dentata.

  25. ishi-san

    @ 13: what a bold statement! Did you ever read the bible??? The bible does not say anything about other races being inferior – that is what the church made out of it.

  26. ishi-san

    Fish, can’t you censor all these racist comments?? It is getting a bit annoying that stupid ignorant people can have freedom of speech! Racists are the dumbest species alive!

  27. elenas

    I saw his profile on millionaire & celebrity dating club____MillionaireLoving. C O M____last week. I am wondering what kind of relationship he is looking for on that site.

    @ #25…

    1 Peter 2:18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

    Colossians 3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God.

    Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ.

    Exodus 21:20-21 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.

    Have you ever read the bible? Or do you just go around claiming it is all good cause your priest sez so?

  29. Ronin

    Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

    1 Corinthians 14:34-36 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

    1 Timothy 2:11-15 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing.

    Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

    Genesis 35:5 The terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them.

    Deuteronomy 4:34… by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors….

  30. Ronin

    Obviously the bible was written by men. Men who loved to rule over their women and their slaves/servants with an iron fist. Some of the same men, of course, who stated in the bible that the earth is a flat disk and the sun revolves around the earth. And don’t forget the Genesis creation fable which is directly opposite of what science has discovered.

    The bible was written by ancient tribesmen who claimed the stars were only a few feet out of reach over their heads and who obviously owned their women, allowing them no voice in anything.

  31. A

    Whoever believes in God and is religious is/ are going straight to HELL.

  32. Ronin

    Chris Brown is simply trying to be a good Christian like his father taught him…

    Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children,and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

    Psalm 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

    Genesis 19:8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes.

  33. not a delusional knucklehead

    #31, you’re a moron. hell only exists in the imaginations of those who believe in it, such as yourself.

  34. Yeah, religion is bullshit, most people with a brain seem to agree.

    Also, throw this fucking dickless shit in jail already and let him grab his ankles nightly for a few years while the other inmates teach him what it means to feel remorse. Maybe then he’ll can the sanctimonious bullshit.

  35. Tom K

    Chris Brown is a sad piece of shit, and white Americans are the biggest hypocrites. They talk all this crap about he needs to be punished and pay blah, blah, blah, but let that stupid, yellow monkey come out with a shitty song you can dance off beat to, and watch how quickly they will forget all about that bitch he beat up. You guys are too forgiving of these monkeys you consider celebrities.

    Examples: Kobe Bryant, R. Kelly, any rapper, athlete, musician, etc…..

  36. billy

    stop the racist posts

  37. Louie

    Chris Brown is a skinny little pencil neck weakling who can’t fight men because they would crush his punk ass.

  38. Karma

    Stop the racist posts

  39. jen

  40. josie

    @33 I think #31 was being ironic, no?

    Religion is for people that think facts are underrated.

  41. g_girl

    yes, stop them please

  42. I agree, if there is one thing I can’t stand it is racism. If you are going to discriminate against this waste of vital organs, do it on the content of his character rather than the color of his skin.

  43. sloane

    Why can’t we move past the racial issues and focus on the DOMESTIC ABUSE issues, people?? 1 in every 4 women will be abused in their lifetime – regardless of their race, religious beliefs or income. Until these offenders start to get truly PUNISHED by our justice system, this violence will only continue. Hopefully the situation with Rihanna will open people’s eyes to how big of an issue domestic violence is, because like Kanye said, it doesn’t matter whether its a celebrity like Rihanna or a girl that works at McDonalds, NO WOMAN/GIRL/CHILD should EVER have to be put in a situation like this

  44. Fisheater

    Heh. What do you expect from a women beater? A sincere apology? Yeah good luck with that.

    Oh btw, fish guy can you at least moderate postings in the future? You lost a lot of funny posters over the past year or so due to non topic “discussions”. By that I mean irrelevant political, racial and misogynist crap.

  45. Fati

    I know some really great black people. That is why I do not have any prejudice against the negroid race, meaning that I do not start out with assumptions. However, there is some truth to what JSD said. I do not like his/her blunt tone either, but there are some unfortunate tendencies among black men (and women too btw). ALL races have their own characters, and some of the traits of those characters are always bad. White people have bad tendencies too. Merely stating that fact is not racism, it is just aknowledgement of a fact.

  46. Fati

    For crying outloud, what do you want from Fish? You really think he’s got all the time in the world to moderate all your posts? The guy has a job and a life too. This site is not his whole life.

  47. Jim

    Typical negro behavior. Keep away, ladies.

  48. Ein

    Just kick him in an arena with some monkey gladiators.

  49. Rorschach

    Chris Brown……..apology not acceptable, must be fed to the dogs, been starving 3 weeks now, reckon they will chew to the bone. Any man, beats up a lady needs a talking to, needs a talking from me. Look over your shoulder Chris!! :+}

  50. sin

    Isn’t it funny, that when a famous black person does something idiotic, AND get caught doing it, they seem to find religion? What a cop out.
    He is just playing up to the public so that he will hopefully get some brain dead religious nut on the jury to aquit him.
    HAs anyone actually listened to him during red carpet event when has beens like Lisa Rinna talk to him? There is no way that guy wrote that statement. He is not smart enough to do it. NOW his people step up to help him. Where were they a week ago? I don’t mean his black people. I mean his staff.
