Kanye West: 'Give Chris Brown a Break!'

Kanye West: 'Give Chris Brown a Break!'-photo

Kanye West doesn't care about Rihanna people. Or, for that matter, Nicole Brown Simpson people.

Reuters reports that the notoriously opinionated 808s & Heartbreak singer taped a segment of VH1's Storytellers on February 13 and—shocker!—made a number of controversial statements.

At some point during the threee-hour taping, which took place at Sony Studios in Los Angeles and included 14 songs, West decided to weigh in on Chris Brown's alleged February assault on his girlfriend Rihanna.

"Can't we give Chris a break?," West asked. "I know I make mistakes in life."

Wow. The good news is, Kanye West has finally admitted that he made a mistake. The bad news is, it's in defense of an alleged abuser.

But West wasn't content to leave bad enough alone. He went on to heap praise on another celebrity who's allegedly been a little rough with the women in his life.

"O.J. Simpson, amazing," West gushed. "Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?"

Wisely, VH1 decided to excise the Chris Brown comment from the episode, which airs tomorrow. Oddly, the O.J. Simpson observation will remain.

There's no telling what kind of smackdown West's latest girlfriend, Amber Rose, will lay on him after catching the segment. Though it's possible that she'll be content to assault his eyes with her fashion sense.

In other Chris Brown-related idiocy, 50 Cent has also added his two bits to the debate.

"It's past what would happen in a traditional dysfunctional relationship, just a little more," the "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" rapper opines in an interview with ABC News. "She was beaten past someone hitting a person out of anger that they couldn't control at the moment."

"It was shocking. It was more than I could do," the rapper added.

Now, now; don't sell yourself short, big guy.

    one other thing... i am a girl and i dont approve if men hitting women. just in case anyone was thinking i thought Chris was right for hitting her. He is wrong for hitting her THAT BAD, especially if he knew she was so defenseless. If that was me.... he would have some bruises too, i wouldn't be the only one bruised NOW I'M REALLY DONE!

    I AGREE WITH KANYE..... LEAVE CHRIS BROWN ALONE!!!!! ITS HIS LIFE, NO ONE ELSES. COME ON, IF YOU WERE MADLY IN LOVE WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? DONT JUDGE PEOPLE, IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT. AND TO THE RIHANNA FANS OUT THERE WHO ARE CALLING HER STUPID FOR GETTING BACK WITH THE PERSON SHE LOVE... IT DOESNT SEEM LIKE YA'LL ARE REALLY FANS. YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SUPPORTIVE PEOPLE, NOT CALLING HER STUPID BECAUSE IF IT WAS YOUR SITUATION, YOU PROBABLY WOULD DO THE SAME. I'M DONE NOW.....!

    Who are we to judge anybody but I mean...Rihanna NEEDS to set an example for ALL women! How can Chris Brown have changed in 3 weeks? How bad could Chris Brown be feeling, how much remorse, and sorrow if he is already jet-skiing??!!!???? THIS f*cking RIDICULOUS, RIHANNA!!!!! I KNOW IT'S HARD TO BE IN YOUR POSITION RIGHT NOW BUT YOU ARE A ROLE MODEL TO SO MANY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF you do the right thing now many women will benefit in the future.

    PDD doesn't care about Rihanna and Chris Brown. He wouldn't allow his own daughter to stay with an abuser and potential murderer. He wants to use them for the music business. Let's see how he does with that. Rihanna needs proper guidance.

    How could Rihanna take Chris Brown back after what he did to her face? She is clearly suffering from Battered Woman's Syndrome. Go to DontDateHimGirl.com to learn more about how to prevent a guy you're dating from abusing you!

    What an unattractive man - both in appearance, and now clearly in his opinions on what is and what isn't acceptable.

    http://www.celebuzz.com/link/kanye-west-offers-words-support-367551/ Kanye West doesn't care about Rihanna? He says to "give Chris a break" just after saying: “I was completely devastated by the concept of what I heard. Rihanna is so important to our culture…to pop music. I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age … she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time. I would do any and everything to help her in any situation.” WTF, Kanye! Make up your mind!

    This is a pretty intense, well-written tale. I haven't heard Nicole Brown's name in years. Well, she's been out of the public eye for a while. I wonder whatever happened to her?
