Fox News Slams Chris Brown And Ke$ha

Jul 18th, 2011 // 18 Comments

It’s no secret that Chris Brown has a temper — it wouldn’t surprise us if Fox soon found their windows smashed a la Good Morning America. But this time around, the famous planker opted for a more peaceful display of his emotions, responding to a recent thrashing by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham by merely tweeting. The segment went outside of Chris Brown’s jam-packed Today concert asking fans if they think supporting Breezy is “rewarding bad behavior,” going so far as to show pictures of a battered Rihanna to remind fans what the “Real Hip Hop #3″ rapper is capable of. (They were also harsh on Ke$ha.) Watch the segment below, then see Chris’ response.

The segment is definitely worth watching for Laura Ingraham’s disgusted (hilarious) reading of Ke$ha and Chris Brown lyrics:

In our opinion, the clip does raise some valid and interesting points, even if we don’t agree with everything that’s said. Certainly it is true that many fans go into denial when they hear something they don’t like about the celeb they worship. Many of the immodest star’s fans shown here are quick to lay the blame on Rihanna rather than admit to Breezy’s wrongdoing.

The Ke$ha connection was only mildly relevant, however — the $leazy chanteuse may sing about some naughty activities, but she’s never actually hurt anyone the way the segment’s other star did.

Needless to say, Chris Brown wasn’t too happy with the piece, tweeting:

“People really should grow up sometimes! I guess the next story they make up will say “chris brown paid the fans to come! #stopit5 hahaha.. I get it though! They are upset at the fact that the today show actually focuses on talent instead of an almost 3 year old incident! Running bogus and pointless stories don’t matter! My fans prove that everyday and the haters just look old as F**k ! I keep my head high and my middle finger higher! I love team breezy. Let’s just laugh it off cuz they mad. Ahahahahaha.. Fame + Platinum= Fortune! Nobody can take my joy. I have some of the most incredible fans in the world. Goodnight y’all!”

Luckily for Chris, he has at least one fan who fully agrees with him — 50 Cent. The rapper tweeted: “I just saw a clip on FOX news Hating on NBC for having chris brown on unbelievable. I’m never watching that again.” (We never figured 50 Cent was much of a Fox news fan in the first place, but okay.)

So where do you stand? Are Breezy’s fans too quick to dismiss his bad behavior? Or is Fox News out of line and beating a dead horse?

    Beating a dead horse much! Three years ago and counting. No one condones Chris’s behavior, as a fan I don’t. But something has got to give. Get the heck over it. Do I hear the same outcry for Woody Allen marrying his daughter and being promoted on eonline, entertainment tonight, etc? I think not. Can you say hypocrite? Team Breezy all the way!

    Just to clarify: I did watch the video. But I wouldn’t have had to watch even one second of it to know that it’s out of line. It is FOX. “FOX” stands synonymous to “dangerously closeminded, bigoted and aggressive”.

    I think that’s all there is to say about it, and I hope that some people here can agree on this. Do the world a favor and don’t support FOX by watching it.

    LOL Fox News still concerned about the abuse incident. There is such thing as forgiving someone for their mistakes. Rihanna’s forgiven Chris and Fox should do the same.
    The Today Show did a Chris Brown concert because they knew it would be popular and have popular ratings. (As shown by the fact that 18000 fans camping out.) I’m pretty sure the Today show wasn’t like “LOL CHRIS BROWN CUSSES LET’S GIVE HIM A CONCERT”
    Also, in general, Fox News is just a bit late, HAHA. Ke$ha and Chris Brown have both been around for a long enough time and now Fox News is just complaining.

    I do agree with FOX somewhat, but they have to move on… The Rihanna thing is over and Ke$ha is Ke$ha. What are you going to do?

  5. They act as if he didn’t go to court and was sentenced. If RIhanna, the victim in all of this, has forgiven him and moved on, everyone else needs to as well.

    I hope they don’t think they were doing rihanna a favor? let these 2 people move on. fox new going after chris. wow chris brown is bigger than I thought. fox is going down anyway . just a matter of time they will start probing in the US…murdock… #teambreezy

  7. Misty Jean

    Move on

  8. shell517nj

    I guess it was a slow day at fox. she’s talking about the majority of the entertainment industry. lol. parents have the most power from the ground up. set boundaries. period. great performance breezy!

  9. RYK101

    move on!!

    i mean i don’t a give of chris to be honest, never was a fan but i’m happy he has his career back i mean he paid for what he did so what’s the point on hating on him?

    oh and just one point, chris please don’t talk about talent, you are a great dancer but singer … well let’s not give any details keep it cool man

  10. I’m not a fan of chris brown himself, but i do love some of his music….i get what theyre saying, but Ke$ha? lol leave the girl alone, blow has nothing to do with what she said, and she clearly didn’t listen to the lyrics to sleazy at all… fox news is done!

    Do we recall the celebrity actor /director that married his stepdaughter? Many actors continued to want to be in his films. This is not an uncommon celebrity scenario. Can anyone guess who the celebrity is ???.

  12. I’ve listened to K$’s Blow many times – I can’t I say I recall the part about taking photos as pinning them up in a trailer. WTF? Anyway. I wouldn’t put it past her. She’s a party girl.

    I think the prob with Chris Brown is that he was never apologetic and refused to own up to what happened from the start of the incident that’s why people are still labeling him as a bad immature guy. A bit of transparency on his part will do him good.

    On Ke$ha, she is a “bad” girl on the surface but her message is more about being real to who u are, not to get drunk, do drugs and be nasty all the time. Like make choices based on what u really want inside rather than just follow the norm bec of fear of being different.

    I think they should focus more on the Jersey Shore. The show may be disguised as entertainingly stupid but the lifestyle it represents is the one that is a “hazard” to the society.

  14. K$’s message about not-to-get-drunk? WTF? She just recorded “Shots on the Hood of My Car” which is about chilling with friends while gulping great scotch. And while Laura was off base about the song Blow (Blow is about glitter and enjoying a concert) – she should have cited “Princes Ke$ha”. Even I was shocked by that! K$ knows how to bring it to the next level when she wants to. On par with ICP.

    True – K$’s message is about being true to yourself – but watch out if that translates into telling everyone you know about the details of your sex life. Sometimes it’s better NOT to follow K$’s lead and to keep some of that to partner.

    Still. I consider K$ my role model.

  15. I for one really enjoy Ke$ha’s music! Ke$ha’s songs are carefree and are about having fun. At least Ke$ha is being herself and not pretending to be something she’s not. If you actually listen to the artists music, and look at her lyrics, you’ll realize you all are completely wrong! Wow, I can’t believe how some of you politic people can be so dense!

  16. Emily

    Well I personally think that they should have left Ke$ha out of it because if you listen to her interviews or actually take a time to read her lyrics they actually have meaning. I think it was out of place to even talk about Ke$ha and Cris Brown together. They should know that if they keep trashing K$ then there is going to be a lot of pissed off loyal K$ fans. And its really simple, even Ke$ha herself has been quoted to say this. If you dont like her music then turn it off. But if u dont turn it off then you have no right to complain about it.

    This is completely one sided!!! They are really focusing on one side of the issue. Chris Brown was held accounted for the accident and he was hated for years because of it. His first album after the event was a FLOP…stores wouldn’t even sell it because he was Chris Brown. He is finally getting his act back together and so what if he’s grown up. Ke$ha should be completely out of this, music is music, it can be interpreted in infinite ways and no ones opinion is completely right. Bad behavior does NOT come from the music that you listen to; these dumbasses have to get off their “high horses” and realize that you just pissed off alot of people (and those stars only pissed off you!). STFU!

    They should’ve included Not Madonna este Lady Gaga on the cult thing.
