Boo hoo. Chris Brown is upset that, soon after the night when he pummeled Rihanna, Oprah did an episode of her show on domestic violence and dedicated it “to all the Rihannas of the world.” During the episode, Oprah said, “I’ve said before love doesn’t hurt, and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again.”
Chris thinks this was harsh. “I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This is a problem,’ but it was a slap in my face,” he told People. “I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.’”He thinks what Oprah said was a “slap in the face”? Interesting choice of words, Chris, because you actually physically slapped your girlfriend in the face, before biting and punching her. I actually think Oprah let you off kind of easy, using the incident as a stepping-off point for a dialogue with women. It wasn’t harsh. Um, did you see the episode where she tore James Frey a new one?
After Chris’ statement, Oprah responded. “Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school, but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs.”
I say “amen” to that. [People via Chicago Sun Times]
