Chris Brown

Violent Outburst

at 'GMA'

3/22/2011 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown exploded in rage behind the scenes at "Good Morning America" this morning ... smashing a window and storming out without a shirt ... sources tell TMZ ... and it was triggered by on-air questions about the Rihanna incident.

ABC sources tell TMZ ... Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident. 

Chris Brown Good Morning America

Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album -- but Roberts continued to ask about Brown's legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident.

We're told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security.

We're told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.  ABC security tells TMZ ... the window was shattered with a chair.

We're told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website.

And sources say ... on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down.   People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to defuse the situation.

Remember -- Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he's required to obey all laws. 

UPDATE 6:49 AM PT:  Brown just tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."

UPDATE 6:59 AM PT: Brown has already deleted the previous tweet ... and added a new one that reads, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"

UPDATE 7:48 AM PT: Glass workers just showed up to fix the window.

There are many idiots on this board. There is nothing that justifies his behavior. Of course he is sick and tired of hearing about it. That's what happens when you disfigure a woman's face with your fists. You don't touch women, unfortunately some cultures don't frown upon it so much and like to affix some of the blame to the victim. Rhianna may be a heinous beatch, but he alone chose to react in a most unacceptable way. He personally chose the narcissist's wet dream profession, that of entertainer/celebrity. With that comes being subjected to our star ffing culture, duh?

well when he said he came to talk about his ABLUM she shouldve been talking about his ABLUM instead of what happened 2 YEARS AGO ! Then she had already talked about what happened 2 YEARS AGO so she didnt need to talk about it again . EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES & THAT'S WHAT THIS WORLD DONT REALIZE . HE REALLY DOESNT NEED ANY OF YA'LL FORGIVENESS FOR NOTHING ONLY GODS. PEOPLE NEED TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT LIKE ... THEMSELVES . IF PEOPLE MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS THEN THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE :)

I would like to know why Chris Brown who is on probation gets off scott free and Lindsay Lohan, also on probation, gets arrested for every little infraction? Double standard - I think so.

Chris has a new C.D. about to drop..."Angry Nee-grow C*ck S*cker"...I'm told it is just O.K. like most of his music. The new single "I Beat Up on Women, Cuz Any Man Can Kick my A$$" is supposed to to be barely average like all his songs...I prob'ly won't get it!!!

At least he directed the anger else where which shows he has learned something! Anger has been a problem for our African American men for years, but I guess it wouldn't be so bad if he went and shot up a school huh? Everyone deals with life and mistakes differently let the young man move on because in his music he shows where he is going! Chris Brown love your haters baby they only make u better!
