Kanye West’s Plea For Chris Brown Cut From VH1’s “Storytellers” Special

During a recent taping of his VH1’s Storytellers, Chicago rap megastar Kanye West displayed a change of heart, showing support for shamed teen singer Chris Brown. Yet the network has decided to cut it from tomorrow’s (Feb. 28) airing of the special, according to Reuters.

When filming his performance at Sony Studios on February 13 at Los Angeles’ Sony Studios, Ye changed his feelings on Brown’s domestic abuse case with girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna. “Can’t we give Chris a break?” he told the audience. “I know I make mistakes in life.”

It seems as if the opinionated Def Jam artist is seeing the situation in a different light. As XXLmag.com previously reported, during an interview with Ryan Seacrest Ye said he was “completely devastated” when he first heard about Brown’s arrest on Grammy night. “I feel like, just as a person I don’t care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald’s that should never happen, it should never come to that, to that place,” he said.

While West’s supportive Chris Brown statements weren’t included in the upcoming program, his display of compassion for Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson and Michael Phelps will be, with a little cleaning up from the network. “Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing… He’s a real fuckin’ person; he makes mistakes,” he shared. “O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?”

Kanye West’s Storytellers is scheduled to air on VH1 tomorrow night at 9 p.m. EST. The 90-minute special features Ye performing “Touch The Sky, “See You In My Nightmares,” “Amazing,” and “Stronger.” [Watch Below] – Elan Mancini

    I can dig it man. Chris is as human as anyone else. He mos def aint perfect. Its crazy how if he was jus an average cat and not in the spotlight this would have been died out by now. Plus he’s still so young. Didn’t we all make dumb mistakes when were younger?

  • FORTY

    Boo Hoo, Rhianna got her ass whooped so fuckin what! Chris Brown’s career isn’t done. It may take him a while to get going again but the nigga is only 19. This is not a career stopper for him….Shit R. Kelly was caught on tape having sex with under age girls and yall mutha fukkas forgave his ass and he got off when that was clearly him on film!

    The only mutha fukka that caught a raw deal was MIKE VICK!!! They gave that man 2 years over some dumb ass animals…. “FREE MIKE VICK”

  • Prince Caesar

    Kanye needs to just make music..other than that..nigga, shut the fuck up. He’s always bumping his gums like he a messiah. I like his music, but, his attitude sucks. Just shut the hell up, man. Also, what’s up with that Kurtis Blo outfit he has on during the show..he kinda looks like Kurtis Blow in Krush Groove.

    • 2hard2fair

      u said it.but since he did open his mouth,it’s just like a punk to speak up for another punk.rhiannas’ father just need to let the bitch do her thing,and if she wants that ass whooped,so be it,her dad did his job.

  • kashrulz

    Rihanna deserves to get her ass whooped. So does any women who thinks you can do whatever you want to a man and he can’t do shit back. Fuck that! We’re not pussies. There’s only so much we can handle. If we’re not REAL men cuz we hit you, then you’re not acting like a REAL women when you’re disrespecting us and yourself. Rihanna is a hot-head, and she was probably all up in his face. AND she gave him STDs! Fuck that “Oh-it doesn’t matter what she did, if you hit a women it’s wrong!!” Bullshit!

    Lemme ask you this, what if my girl told me she fucked my best friend and said his was bigger than mine, and then gave me a tape with her and my best friend fucking each other and my best friend goes in front of the camera and points out at me and says “I’m fucking yo bitch”, and then after the tape my girl kicked me in the nuts and stomped on me screaming “You bitch ass mutherfucker! You bitch ass mutherfucker, fuck you and yo momma!!!!!” And then she went to my mom’s house and kicked my mom and stomped on her saying ” Fuck yo son! Fuck your son!!” And then she came back to me and spit on me saying” “I just whoop yo momma’s ass! And she has crusty toes!” -If she did all that, you’re telling me I don’t have the right to knock that bitch out?

    Now…don’t get me wrong, i’m not a abuser nor do I encourage it. But don’t make it look as if rihanna was just ‘oh-little-miss-innocent’ and she don’t know why her ‘love of her life’ would do such a thing, and Chris is this big bad criminal. Please cut the bullshit..

  • Omunique

    Who are we to judge someone elses’ mistakes? Or are we all perfect now? We forgot that the only being/person to walk this Earth ever was Jesus Christ. It’s like T.I. said,” We celeberties. We human too though. We make mistakes.” No I’m not excusing Chris Brown from what he did but James Brown did it, Bobby Brown did it, and so did Mike Tyson. I agree with Kanye. It should never get that far, “to that place.” Bottom line : A man should never put his hands on a woman. EVER!!!
