**Update at bottom: original audio of interview added.
Pictured below is Rihanna, a successful young woman who has made herself a career in pop music. In 2009, when she was just 20 years old, her boyfriend, rapper Chris Brown, violently beat her during an argument and left her bruised and bloody on the side of the road.

The couple broke up amid a very public court drama. Rihanna secured a restraining order. Chris Brown was disinvited from singing gigs and lost endorsement deals. So bad was the abuse that Brown was forced to plead guilty to felony assault.
But two years later, Brown has suffered virtually no further consequence. He still has a record deal, still considers himself a rock star, and still gets cushy interviews on network morning shows.
Last week, Brown was invited on Good Morning America to promote his new album. During the interview, host Robin Roberts – to her credit – couldn’t get past how a guy with a felony assault conviction was singing on her stage. She pressed Brown to talk about Rihanna.
Like the spoiled brat he is, Brown grew visibly annoyed, and after the segment he destroyed his dressing room backstage. ABC producers walked in the room to find a window smashed. They decided not to press charges because…wait for it… that would get him in trouble with his probation officer.
You cannot make this stuff up. Several news outlets reported the episode with a certain amount of disgust at Brown’s behavior.
But wait, it gets worse. Liberal Feminist Extraordinaire Rosie O’Donnell decided complain about this injustice on her radio show. Because prime time exposure on a network morning show to promote a record label project is apparently far too great a punishment.
Observe the true face of progressive feminism:
I can name twenty-five stars who trash dressing rooms, who trash hotel rooms. I just don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else.
This is just a shot in the dark, but maybe people are more concerned about Rihanna than the dressing room incident.
O’Donnell and Barber went on to theorize that the only reason women hate Brown so much is because of racism. Don’t you see the logic? Let’s go over it again.
Mick Jagger trashes a hotel room and gets away with it. Chris Brown punches his girlfriend in the face – and then trashes a dressing room – and does not get away with it. Racism is obviously the deciding factor.
Young ladies reading this, observe what progressives really think about you. This is who they are. Agenda comes before everything to them, so when you get in the way they will push you aside.
People like Rosie O’Donnell do not see Rihanna as a beautiful young woman. They see her as a piece of furniture only useful when she’s not in the way.
If you have a strong stomach, the rest of the audio is below (hat/tip Radio Equalizer).
Update – Good Morning America, probably in an effort to show their side of the story, released footage of the offending interview. Watch and judge for yourself if Robin Roberts actually treated him like a thug.
