Russell Simmons Thinks Chris Brown Deserves a Break

Hip Hop giant Russell Simmons says the public is being unfair to Chris Brown.

On his website, Simmons wrote, “Chris is suffering from the same thing as almost every young star has gone through, including the Disney kids… what's not fair is artists paying the price of the sins in their young lives for the rest of their lives. Again, and again, and again."

Well, when those artists keep flipping out on people, it makes it kind of difficult. Simmons continued that Brown's assault against Rihanna and his outburst on GMA were two separate incidents and have nothing to do with who Brown is as a person.

So basically, Simmons is saying his actions don’t reflect who he is, which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve heard since I read about Brown’s mom’s reaction.

"He's having the same type of struggles that all those other Disney kids have and all the other people who have instant fame... Because of that one regretful incident, no one will give him a break,” Simmons said.

What is this dude’s fixation with the Disney kids? I could be wrong, but I don’t think the twins from the Suite Life of Zach and Cody have ever been convicted of domestic assault.
