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.

I worried for Robin's safety. He still hasn't taken responsibility for what he did.

Is it summer in NYC? Why was dude wearing a tanktop in the first place, and who gets mad any takes their shirt off anyway?

Did he think he was in a bar fight on a college campus?

Oh, and nobody is praising Charlie Sheen. People are just enjoying the show (while secretly cheering for a violent end)!

douche... mind your own business and leave Charlie out of it. Take care of your behaviour first before looking and pointing fingers.

He's going to crash & burn - more so than he already has. You can WANT for people to forget the awful things you've done, but you can't EXPECT them to. What a douche. He's looking like a bootleg Dennis Rodman - only less classy.

This idiot needs to be sent to prison. Better yet, people should stop supporting him and his BS by NOT buying his latest album. Of course, a lot of people glorify his behavior, so he'll get away with it, get no time for violating his parole (which he just did), and if he does get in trouble, he'll have to go to rehab again. And he'll whine and moan about it, even though it is HIS reprehensible behavior that is getting him in trouble (after all, it is NEVER the celebs fault when they do something wrong). He is pathetic.

Nice tattoo. Is 'Symphonic Love' the kind of love that you beat into someone's face with your hand?
