Well, as soon as I heard the news I knew there would be some smoke in the city.
ABC has booked Chris Brown perform on GMA and to talk about the abuse to Rihanna. However, fans of Adam Lambert are furious.
I can understand the anger, he attacked Rihanna more than once and that incident is not easy to forgive. Plus, the message that sends to the public very mixed. I'm curious to see how this plays out.
ABC has booked Rihanna-beater Chris Brown for an interview and a performance on "Good Morning America" -- right after the network canceled guy-kisser Adam Lambert.
Brown will do a taped tell-all with Robin Roberts, followed by a performance of songs from his new album. But TV insiders say the appearance, slated to air the week after next, has outraged feminists and gay activists who wonder why a convicted girlfriend abuser is more palatable to the network than an openly gay man who broke no laws with his raunchy performance on the "American Music Awards."
Was ABC thinking at all about this format? How could they not see this coming? And although folks deserve a second chance, is this too soon?
I think this is too soon. Chris needs counseling and time away from everything. He needs to truly understand the impact of his actions. And ABC needs to understand theirs as well.
P.S. the source is from Fox News. Love how they describe this.
