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.

he should not have done what he did and robin roberts should not have been bringing that up. the guy has paid for what he did and all he's trying to do is move on. she knew who he is, yet she kept harping on something that is in the past. i wouldn't have blamed him if he had busted that lesbo up beside the head. you all can't let anything go. just look at the michael vick saga. every other race has moved on. but white people can't just harm you. they have to go for the jugular, every single time. and i know roberts is black but she lives in a white world. she's engrained with their thoughts and behavior. i just don't get why you all can't move on. i don't get why you all love seeing others suffer until they take their last breath. is it something in your dna that makes you all so mean, nasty and victious? robin roberts was wrong. just plain and simple, she was wrong.

Does he really think he will ever escape the story? His album sales are nothing to talk about. So what else is there...oh yeah his lanky ween ween... ironic that it looks like an umbrella on top.

You can see in the very beginning of the interview, how angry he was getting..It wasn't like she was interrogating him. He obviously still has huge anger issues and needs lots of help!

Same thing that happened to kanye west.
i dont support such actions but the joke with rihanna needs to over at some point.
thats ridiculous.
there are soo many awful things those celebrities do from time to time . why journalist dont ask about them everytime those celebrities go to interviews?
theres a purpose for everything

and in any case as a public person he has to expect to be asked about it a million times. Its up to him if the makes it a boring topic or reacts like a little punk and blows it out of proportion again. hes a child.

CB is scheduled to appear on DWTS the this season. They better go ahead and cancel that appearance. I would like to see David Hassellhoff or Michael Bolton instead.

So many great entertainers out there why should GMA scrape the bottom on the barrel? Chris Brown is an idiot a mental midget,a lost cause. His no talent ass should be pushing a broom in a warehouse.

If this is true I see that he has not learned a damned thing from his past. Yes, unfortunately for him, he will always be asked about what occurred between him an Rihanna. It's news and it will always be on his resume. If he wants to continue with his career, which clearly he doesn't, he had better learn to deal with the matter in a more mature fashion. There are consequences for one's actions and Chris Brown is no exception to this rule.

.....and I fault his "people" for not getting this straight up front. And someone should have stepped in and cut the interview short....

Who am I     

That just shows ignorance on his part. There was no need for the outburst. He needs to man up and own up to his mistakes and deal with the consequences. So many celebrities go on air doing interviews and are asked questions they don't like, but you don't see them acting like a total ass.....grow up Chris Brown!
