'GMA' reports on Chris Brown's tantrum, and its invitation for him to return
Good Morning America gave a play-by-play of what happened backstage after Chris Brown, who the show says had agreed to talk about his past, became angry with Robin Roberts’ line of questioning Tuesday. Per this morning’s report, Brown “stormed backstage with his team” after his performance and, “at one point, a cooler was thrown and this window was broken in his dressing room.” He then left the building with his shirt off. He tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bulls**t.” It’s a point that The View debated when Sherri Shepherd wondered why someone had called Chris Brown a “thug” and not Sheen. Brown also tweeted more positive messages yesterday, thanking his fans for their support.
Roberts reiterated that the show had informed Brown that they would be discussing his past, and she even mentioned it to him again right before the interview. She was “shocked like everybody else” at his behavior — which the on-air talent didn’t find out about until the show ended — because they’ve had a good relationship in the past. (That’s why she laughed when he said he wanted to be talking about his new album and not something that happened two years ago.) He had welcomed her into his home to do one of his first interviews following his 2009 arrest for assaulting Rihanna. Roberts said GMA has extended an invitation for Brown to return to the show, which he is “seriously considering.” Watch GMA‘s report below.
