Chris, when you apologize from the heart, you dont' read from cue cards or an Obama Teleprompter. You read your cue cards way too fast - a sign you just wanted to get it done and get on with the rest of your busy day of shopping for more tacky bling. Not buying it, and you still suck.

How can you admire?    

"I've spent a lot of time trying to understand what happened and why."

Haha! Does that mean skipping around on the water, on a sea-doo, immediately after "the incident."

Sorry Chris Brown, apology not accepted. You say that under the advice of your lawyers you have not been able to apologize until now. Its called advice for a reason, you don't have to do what they say. If you were truly sorry for what you did you would have apologized much sooner, and with something not so scripted. Sounds to me like you were just looking out for your own ass. Very lame. We will NEVER forget what you did. Even if you never do it again. You're still another guy who lost control and beat a woman. I hope you felt like a big man when you struck her in the face.

I would like to see Chris Brown donate some money to charities that help battered woman. Its literally time to pay for your mistakes!

Insert foot in mouth! I cannot believe that he got away with that kind of violence. Before this video I was on his side, now I have no respect for either of them. I will not be purchasing any music from these two!

LET HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE....
STOP JUDGING THE MAN. HE IS EXCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS ACTIONS AND RIHANNA HAS FORGIVEN HIM SO IT IS REALLY TIME TO MOVE ON.
WE ALL HAVE DONE SOMETHING WHEN WE WERE YOUNG THAT WE WILL NOT EVER TELL. IT'S JUST THIS MAN IS IN THE SPOTLIGHT... I THINK IT GOES BOTH WAYS MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD NOT EVER HIT . HITTING HURTS. IF YOU REALLY TRULY LOVE THAT PERSON YOU WOULD NOT EVER WANT TO DO ANYTHING TO HURT THE PERSON YOU LOVE...

Beating a woman like that is not a "mistake". A mistake is taking a glass instead of a cup out of the cupboard. This is far, far over the line. He knew what he was doing and he enjoyed it, the sadistic little creep.

Of course some people on this board have suffered similar treatment from similar idiots, that's why they speak of experience. And who should be judging? The victims and the courts.

Hollywood's a Hazard    

The only thing he is sorry about is the fact that his once promising career is in the crapper.

Who cares. Chris Brown will always have fans because he's majorly talented and Rihanna defended him and wanted him to get away with this. She didn't want charges or a restraining order to be put in place. She wanted to get back with him and it took her a while to get over him and move on. Who knows she might still be in love with him. But if Rihanna can't even stand up for herself and doesn't care that he went on with his life as if this was just something normal that happened I'm not going to hate on Chris Brown. I hope they never get back together again and just move on with their careers.

He has paid his debt, let him move on with his life. Think back at some things you have done plus what about all of the other stars that have had 911 calls for abuse, have they issued apologies. What about RiRI for hitting Chris, same thing, where is her apology?

Better than you    

There was absolutely NOTHING sincere about this apology.

It is solely to try and salvage what's left of his career.

The only thing he is sorry for, is getting busted.
