Wow...I would hate to be in any of you guys position should you do something. No mercy? Rihanna has obviously gotten over it and had to be coerced to appear for the prosecution. Abuse is a two way street and any woman who lays her hands on a man should prepare herself for backlash. This boy was wrong, but should he be pursecuted for the rest of his life, no. If it is meant for him to prosper he will, despite all you HATERS.

So it was an incident? And he walked around wearing that tacky "OOPS" necklace recently?

If remorseful=my career's in the toilet if I don't do this, and I still don't get the gravity of what I did to a human being I was supposed to love, then he's remorseful.

He'll do it again, they always do. No girl should touch him with a ten foot pole. His sort always claim they "lose it" and blame the victim, and then a little later they're sooo sorry. Not impressed.

Thank your lucky stars you aren't getting beaten down in jail, Mr. Brown. This is such a BS statement and months way too late, although it's totally void of empathy. Say goodbye to your career. You nearly killed a woman and are sorry that your career has suffered. We all know it wasn't the first time. Seriously, who beats up a woman, chokes her and threatens to kill her, then goes jet skiing days later??? I guess you needed a vacation as beating a woman near death is veryyyyyyyyyyy exhausting.

Chris Brown is the new OJ. WOMEN BEWARE!!!!!

I really feel like this took a lot for him to do. Even though people are calling him names, and many people won't forgive him for what he has done, this was a big step. This just shows that he is trying to move forward, and who are we to try and hold him back. I respect the fact that Chris Brown stepped up, took full responsibility, and put this out for people to see. Even the people who can't seem to move on from this even though the people who were involved clearly have. This was very important for him to do and i sincerely respect that. It's true that the situation should have happened without him putting his hands on Rihanna, but we can't change what has already happened. THANKS CHRIS! I'm still a TRUE FAN.

It is amazing how cheap the word EXCLUSIVE has become with tabiods. A exclusive means no one else had or has access to the information your reporting.

A public apology is not a exclusive as this vedeo would be released to all the media outlets.

Besides Chris Brown is a nobody a has been, his 2 minutes of fame ended in a 5 minute beating

Would he be so apologetic were he never busted? I don't think so. He would have credibility if he apologized for being caught because his career has taken a hit.
