Chris Brown apology video for Rihanna assault back in February. (Click to play)
Chris Brown has apologized for his assault of ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.
The 20-year-old singer took to his official YouTube page to reach out to the media and his fans.
Brown can be seen in the clip talking about how he is sowwy about the “incident” and how he didn’t apologize before, in fear of getting smacked by his attorney. Late for whatever reason, I guess credit where it’s due. This incident was in February, and most of the media has forgotten about it and seemed happy never to mention this again. It takes a big person or a big need for PR to dig up these ghosts and start airing this issue in public again.
Not sure what to make of this, really. Brown appears quite managed and staged, but rather sincere. As such, I advise you to go on about your lives as if the video had never been made. Let’s face it, sorry or no, there were never any real consequences and the dangerous precedent has been set. That’s the only thing I’m taking away from this whole mess.
Some quotes from the Chris Brown apology video can be found here.
“Since February, my attorney has advised me not to speak out, even though, ever since the incident, I wanted to publicly express my deepest regret and accept full responsibility,” he says in a video posted on his YouTube page. “I felt it was time that you heard directly from me that I am sorry.”
“I wish I had a chance to live those few moments again, but unfortunately I can’t,” a remorseful Brown said. “I’m not going to sit here and make any excuses.”
“I have sought and I continue to seek help to ensure that what occurred in February can never happen again. What I did was unacceptable, 100%. I can only ask and pray that you forgive me, please. I intend to live my life so that I’m truly worthy of the term role model.”
