“I found this one eating at a Panera. A Panera. It’s a travesty how we treat these people.”
Taking time off from touting MTV’s Teen Mom as a “positive message” for young girls, Rosie O’Donnell is now coming to the aid of Chris Brown who she thinks is being unfairly criticized for beating the living shit out of Rihanna because he’s black. You just read that. Via Popeater:
“I just don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else,” O’Donnell said on her Sirius XM show ‘Rosie Radio.’
When Rosie’s executive producer implied there is a racial aspect at play, Rosie replied: “I totally think there is, and I also think it’s why he felt he was safer with Robin Roberts [who is also African-American].” Rosie added that she felt “mildly angry” at Robin while watching her interview Chris.
Granted, Rosie O’Donnell has gone her entire life without ever being a small, defenseless woman, she does have a daughter so you’d assume some sort of perspective would’ve come into play here. Instead, Rosie decided to apply her ultra-liberal viewpoints that make Rachel Maddow look like Dick Cheney and consider any criticism of a black person to be racist in nature. Which is even more disturbing because in a sense she’s equating Chris Brown with Obama. But I guess they all look a like to you, don’t they, Rosie? RACIST!
