Specifically, Brown says he’s upset by the episode of the Chicago-based talk show that Oprah devoted to domestic violence, based on Brown’s assault on Rihanna in a car following the Grammys in February. While Brown says the topic is an important one to address, he feels Oprah could have shown him more compassion on the show.
“I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This is a problem,’ but it was a slap in my face,” Brown says of the show. “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.’”
Oprah’s spokesperson replied Thursday to the Sun-Times, saying, “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.”
