“I just don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else,” Rosie O’Donnell says of the media’s treatment of Chris Brown, where said treatment includes reporting on his Good Morning America temper tantrum and not, it seems, his very public beating of onetime girlfriend Rihanna. Watching him get interviewed by Chick-fil-A lover Robin Roberts, Rosie says she felt “mildly angry” at the way the GMA host, uh, brought up his sordid past? “I totally think there is” a racial bias toward Brown, she continues. “I just don’t know why this kid gets held to a different standard than anyone else.” Um, maybe because he’s clearly a rageaholic with a violence problem?
Rosie is teetering on the edge of becoming the next Jodie Foster, who continues to defend the racist and anti-Semitic Mel Gibson. It was Roberts, a fellow lesbian, who performed her journalistic duty (how novel!) and repeatedly queried Brown about how his scandalized past could effect his career. But that, apparently, is racially targeting the singer according to Rosie.
How about Roberts re-interview Brown, and ask him about those gay sex rumors?
