According to TMZ, Brown was so angry about being questioned about his 2009 conviction for assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna, he stormed off the set, broke a window in his dressing room and tore off his shirt.

I have deleted ABC from my channel selector. A network that supports misogynists and bigots is not getting my viewership.

Chris Brown is the man if he can make an idiot like you delete a channel and stop watching a TV show.
Hey 1centsally what skeletons roam in your closet? The media wants to know. I don't think you want that ou there, grow up and stop being so judgemental, that's God's job not yours.

I'm sad ABC & DWTS has decided to keep Chris Brown on the results show. I guess I'm just sick and tired of these celebrities being rewarded for their bad behavior. This is a man who has beaten a woman and really only got probation. It's a shame our court system doesn't punish more for assault against women, rape, child molestation and hate crimes but it is what it is. So we have Chris Brown who knew he would be asked a question about the assault but got upset. He was on a news show - there to promote an album but just cause that's his agenda doesn't mean he can't be asked other questions. He showed up, he took that risk. Then he gets violent and could of harmed people on the street. What happens - people defend him, more people buy his cd. I mean really. But it happens all the time. Look at Charlie Sheen and how he's rewarded by his "alleged" violence against women, his drug use, his just plain old craziness. He had his kids taken away for a bit but hmmmm let's spend time promoting stuff on twitter and acting crazy in interviews. Really is that being worried for his kids. It's just so much going on in the worried that is more important (and I know I'm writing about Chris Brown) but celeb after celeb these days are acting out, behaving badly and nothing happens
I'm not perfect, I've made mistakes but I've also paid for them --- just don't think Chris Brown deserves this spotlight to make more money off of his violent behavior.
Just my thoughts

Here's the thing. He wants people to move past his incident of violence and concentrate on his music - but then he plows that point home by being violent. That's insane. He had to know that nobody was going to talk about the album after he broke a window. Idiot!

I am sick and tired of the public on a witch hunt for certain celebs (African Americans) really! When the news publicize meltdowns of other races (One specific) all the time, and it never have the negative back lash the way the public attacks an African American artist. Their dirt is just swept under the rug. Just stop being so judgemental people, NOBODY IS PERFECT SCREAMING: JUST STOP IT REALLY!!! If the few people who can't find anything else better to do than Hate others for their short comings because their lives are sooo perfect (Not), don't tune in to DWTS...SO WHAT, WHO REALLY CARES, this show is so amazing and successful a GROUP of HATERS will not stop the majority from watching!!! Artist have feelings too, and they do deserve the same respect as everyone else when it comes to their personal life, the public loves the Artist for their MUSIC these people don't owe the public anything (BUT GREAT MUSIC), move on it's so much going on in our world to be still stuck on what happen to Chris Brown and Rhianna in the past...that is over, so can the haters in the public let it go!!! Then the nerve of some people who think he should go to jail or he will hurt someone, I truly believe some of these comments come from people who racist or heavy drug abusers, because really it's not that serious. If you know a person who is dealing with a sensative situation and trying to move forward why in the Hell would you throw salt in the womb...it's really unecessary their were many other question the Lady could've have asked him...like about his MUSIC that was the purpose he came on the DAM show to promote his new CD, and what does SATAN PEOPLE do just keep Jabbing at you none stop hoping and praying that you snap for a rating, now that's disgusting if you ask me! The people wanted to hear about his new music coming out, not about his past...the media did enough bashing two years ago...and their are real DANGEROUS criminals free and serious events effecting our nation right now....go out and get real news, STOP THE WITCH HUNT ON AFRICAN AMERICAN ARTIST!!! Chris Brown is very talented and His Real Fans should be very proud of the NEW MUSIC he is putting out here he has done an OUTSTANDING JOB once again :-) Chris if you read this, please don't let these evil witches prepare a PUBLIC TRAP for you young man, and you give them just what they want and fall into the trap...keep it moving, your NEW look is OH SO SEXY, so keep your head up! These people who have so much to say need their DIRTY laundry AIRED on the media so everybody can make weight less comments about them...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, can we move on PLEASE!!! ~ Spread the Love, Stop Hating ~

This comment, besides being barely intelligible and sounding like it was written by someone to whom English is a 4th language, is pretty disturbing. The only one throwing around the race card is you.Trust me, if Justin Bieber beat the crap out of Selena Gomez, people would definitely still be talking about it two years later. Whether it's Mel Gibson or Chris Brown, appallingly violent incidents sometimes catch the attention of the nation and don't go away because a childish celebrity and his blind followers will it to happen. At the end of this ridiculously inane rant, you say "Spread the Love, Stop Hating," which of course was preceded by obviously contradictory phrases such as "these comments come from people who racist or heavy drug abusers" and the amusing "Chris if you read this, please don't let these evil witches prepare a PUBLIC TRAP for you." Also, I am scratching my head trying to understand "what does SATAN PEOPLE do just keep Jabbing at you." LOL! What a funny comment, this has made my day!

DWTS fan

I have been a loyal DWTS fan every season, but I am disappointed and angry that ABC would reward the actions of an obviously angry performer for his childish tirade. How about showing some strength and belief in what is right by punishing this spoiled brat and give the message to the other "wannabes" to not follow his stupid, dangerous example. Is ABC going to forgive him and beg him to perform again if the steps up the aggression, as he appears to be heading. How about forgiving him when he kills someone in another angry episode, but then after all, it is entertainment and that makes money. The hell with showing what is proper. The bottom line is all that matters.

I really enjoyed Monday night DWTS and think the line-up is great, but will change stations for his performance.
