So despite the fact that he trashed the fresh hell out of their Good Morning America set, ABC decided to have Chris Brown perform on Dancing With The Stars, because really, who wouldn’t want to invite a violent abuser onto a family TV show? Anyway, host Tom Bergeron is reacting the way any sane, rational human being would react to this by being terrified of enraging Chris to the point where he’s afraid to say anything.
DWTS host Tom Bergeron sat down for an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Monday and told his fellow reality talent competition host that there might be trouble if he gets an opportunity to interview Brown on the air. “I did say to the producers that it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something,” Bergeron revealed (via Entertainment Weekly). “So don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me not to say something, because I won’t really do that.” SOURCE
All of this begs the question: Why continue to promote Chris Brown? I think it’s been well established that the only people who like him at this point are his die-hard fans who will buy his albums anyway regardless of where the hell he shows up on TV, and it’s not like an appearance is going to help either side. “My word, look at that Chris fellow. What a talented person who would never beat a woman. I’m going to go out and buy his albums now, as long as I don’t find out he savagely beat his girlfriend!”
