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.

oh please. by asking those questions, the were LOOKING for a story. they didn't give a crap about his album or career. all they wanted were ratings and something juicy. well, "juicy" is what they got. obviously, it's not the way to behave, but it was provoked. it was like shoving a recovering alcoholic vodka down his throat. people should give him a chance.

First of all, I am not saying what he did to RiRI is right but for a young man he deserved to get another chance. It’s a double standard here look at Charlie Sheen situation he threatened his wife and he is selling out “Radio City” what is up with that BS. AND we have Robert Downey Jr. he went to hell and back and now no ever bring up his past. He should be able to move on and continue with his career.

Every time this young man tried I don’t think the media is letting him, especially main stream media.

Who praises Charlie Sheen? I don't know anyone personally who has. That was a comment to deflect attention away from himself because he can't take responsibility for his own actions.

He wants to change public interest back to his music but a lot people like myself never heard of this dude till he was in the news for beating up a women. So the only news I'm interested in about him is follow ups to the beating story.

I with Chris on this one. Let the guy move forward and live his life. Stop questioning him relentlessly on old news. He paid his dues and made his apologies.

Oh Chris, don't beat up skinny women and expect people not to ask you why you're such a douche. Hope somebody kicks his ass sometime.

TMZ dont like me    

Man, Brezzy. You can dye your hair blond and look like Dennis Rodman. You can get all kinds of crazy tattoos, all up your ass, but the fact still remains that Rihanna blew the hell up and left your sorry ass in the dust. She's doing Colin Ferrell. You stroking a basic chick named Karruche. The night you whooped her ass was the night you gave her the gift of superstardom and gave yourself career suicide...

Wow what a ass any body that beats up women has a anger issue and obviously he hasn't learned how to control himself, once you become as violent as him in a public, god knows what he would do in private if he was pissed off at you,his career is over.
I thought maybe he had a chance not anymore what a pathetic man he is, reactions have consequences Chris you need help.
