So as many have read, seen,or heard of, 19 year old R&B Singer Chris Brown allgedly hit or otherwise was rough with his girlfriend, Pop Singer Rhianna. Reports are vague and lack any real substantial detail as to what happened, although the couple has broken up and rumours are flying.
In the story “Chris Brown Breaks His Silence About Rihanna Incident” posted on eonline today, Brown issues an apology and says he is seeking help. The apology goes as follows…
“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.”

The statement was a whole lot of nothing. I guess they just put that out to let everyone know that silly facebook and myspace mess was fake, just like the silly herpes thing. Along with spiritual counselling, he also needs mental counselling from a trained professional in anger management. His PR team sucks. Has the label left him out to dry? Surely they could have done better than this. He needs to be in anger management counselling like yesterday.”
you kno wat..all of yall need to shut up b/c u dnt kno wat u r tlkn bout….no one really knows wat they r tlkn bout so they need to just keep their mouth close until they here the real truth they just need to keep quiet. She reallly makes me sick because she lived up to her name good girl gone bad…Everyone who knows chris brown knows that he is not that type of guy… i love him and always will…”
The comments show that there is a clear taking of sides, with the majority opposing Brown and his less than convincing apology. Most comments were better than those posted to YouTube which leads me to believe there is at least some moderation to comments on the eonline website. But Whatever the reason, the story has generated a lot of views and a lot of comments and probably will continue to do so until more information is made available.
