Chris Brown Beats Out Adam Lambert for 'Good Morning America' Appearance

Chris Brown Beats Out Adam Lambert for 'Good Morning America' Appearance-photo

Hey, you know how Good Morning America canceled a scheduled performance by American Idol favorite Adam Lambert because they deemed his crotch-thrusting American Music Awards performance to be inappropriate?

Yeah, well it seems that they've found a much more suitable role model to grace their wholesome airwaves: "I Can Transform Ya" singer and convicted assailant Chris Brown.

The New York Post reports that GMA has booked Brown to tape an interview and bust out a song for the show next week.

Predictably, the decision to give the spotlight to a known abuser, after condemning Lambert's gay-but-perfectly-legal stage shenanigans, has caused some to question ABC's logic. A source for the network admits to the paper:

"The network is giving a mixed message—that it doesn't trust someone who shocked with an unpredictable show and a gay kiss, but then it is happy to go ahead with Chris Brown, who was convicted of felony assault."

Yes, but, to be fair, Brown has apologized for beating the hell out of Rihanna. Kind of.  Sorta. When he hasn't been busy suggesting that she should have kept her big mouth shut about the whole thing.

Tell us in the comments section: Are Good Morning America's priorities way off base?

    Chris paid his dues for his felony. This was Adam's "punishment". He shouldn't be allowed to have the HONOR of being on Good Morning America after replulsive act that he put on. Stop being such a dirtball.

    Chris Brown doing an interview isn't inappropriate to anyone! To men kissing may not be inappropriate to some people, but it is to others. Therefore it is more inappropriate then Chris Brown giving an interview! Not once has Chris Brown said what he did to Rihanna was ok so it’s not like ANYONE is promoting it! i think its a good thing they did this!! There just looking out for the shows best interest!!! I say everyone gets off Chris Brown’s back... let him live his life!

    If Adam Lambert were black, ABC would not have cancelled him. Chris Brown proved that.

    Complete double standard. Won't watch ABC's GMA interview of Brown or ANY interview going forward.. WOULD have watched Adam Lambert Their reason for canceling is total BS. Adam's performance on a morning show unpredictable? Puhleeeeez. What rubbish since he had already perfromed beautifully in August. ABC loses. CBS won.

    Which is more acceptable behavior, brutal violence against a woman or gay high jinks? Yep, totally predictable and obviously a decision made by men.

    Look at how people are making a joke out of Tiger Wood's wife... We really have give the wrong message about domestic violence being a man's crime. Someone needs to use that as a teachable opportunity as well and let's address violence in relationships from men and women! I'm sure you will watch GMA again stop being a hypocrite!

    I was disgusted with GMA for canceling Adam Lambert and am even more disgusted to hear that they have booked Chris Brown! UNBELIEVABLE!!! Maybe Chris can dedicate his song to his mentor OJ Simpson... Doesn't matter... I will NEVER watch GMA again...

    Please explain to me how a Chris Brown interview that speaks about the wrongs of domestic violence, consequences of such acts and helpful advice to young men and women in that situation relates to Adam Lambert gyrating and alluding sexual acts on stage? Chris Brown is NOT performing his interview will actually help young men and women in domestic abuse situations. Chris Brown's situation should have never happened and neither should Tiger Wood's. So if you want to vent about ABC discriminating against Adam do that, but to use Chris Brown's interview as your scapegoat is disgusting and plain STUPID!!

    I have to thank both ABC and CBS for proving Lambert's point about the double standards and the homophobia. ABC proves that it IS all about homophobia when they find it more acceptable to have a man convicted of felony assault getting an interview and free pr for his song, than to have Lambert sing. Then CBS proves the double standard when they censor the m/m kiss and instantly follow it with a f/f kiss. I have to laugh when I hear conservatives complaining that the media has a liberal bias -- because apparently it's okay if women get beaten and it's best if gay men just stand there and sing with no apparent sexuality. (Reminds me of the Rat Pack's acceptance of Sammy Davis Jr as long as he didn't act Black.)

    Hypocrites! and quite disturbing. Maybe all the moms who were were in an uproar about their little kiddies seeing Adam at night on the AMA's can have them watch Chris Brown instead and let them know "gay man bad" "woman beater good". Right ABC?

    I think it is so wrong. Adam didn't break any laws, all he did was kiss a guy and expressed his gay side. And no one expected him to do that. Chris Brown on the other hand, did something really bad. He is a wife beater, he treated poor little Rihanna like his own punching bag. And they let him perform on GMA and not Adam? This is so wrong in so many ways!!!

    ABC is a loser. There reason is so lame and their message is horrifying. I think the decision makers ought to have their performances reviewed for just being plain stupid and hypocritical.

    It's my understanding that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be in New York soon, maybe GMA can book him on there to belt out a couple of tunes.

    GMA is totally wrong in having Chris Brown on their show and not having Adam. The majority of their viewers are women and I'm sure many have been abused in the same way. I am sorry Chris Brown has no story that anyone should care to here. He physically abused Rihanna and should not have a forum to air his "side". Gma should reschedule Adam and apologize to him.

    GMA is completely hypocritical... It won't be long before they get canceled. NO ONE CARES! I guess GMA believes it's ok to beat the CRAP out of a woman, but not ok to put on a racy performance. OH WELL!

    ABC REPULSES ME PROFOUNDLY There is no double standard with ABC booking a convicted man to perform, a man who has unpredictable behavior, due to the fact that he brutally beat a woman on the way to an awards show, compared to a gay man having his performance canceled, due to ONE risqué performance depicting male-male sexuality. ABC had previously featured Adam Lambert on GMA and he proved there was nothing unpredictable about his performance then or on any of the shows he's appeared on after the AMA's. Yes, ABC gladly and willingly shows gratuitous violence and female-female sexual depictions, which is most definitely a double standard, but the reason why I say there is no double standard in ABC canceling a gentle, caring man like Adam Lambert, in favor of a sorry excuse for a human being, like Chris Brown, a horrific role model for our children, is because ABC has NO STANDARDS AT ALL! You've got to have standards in the 1st place, and ABC clearly has none. They owe the gay community an apology. They owe a straight mom like me, who supports the LGBT community, an apology for glorifying a man who brutalizes women versus the admonishment of a well-respected gay man who expressed his sexuality and hurt no one. This is NOT the lesson I want to teach my sons, and thus, ABC is no longer a network suitable for viewing in my house. After all, how can I trust ABC, when they have proven themselves to be so "unpredictable?"
