Celebs Aren’t Buying Chris Brown’s Apology – Including Rihanna

|

Chris Brown finally released a statement on Sunday about kicking Rihanna‘s ass – he probably hoped we’d be too busy celebrating President’s Day to notice. Nice try, pal. Here’s the official word from the shamed singer, who has apparently hired Paris Hilton‘s former flack to help him through this image crisis:

“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”

Rihanna is reportedly “appalled” by her ex’s groveling, but the real sass is coming from some of the older ladies lurking around Hollywood. Oprah Winfrey‘s best friend Gayle King told Extra, “I can’t think of anything that makes me support anything that Chris Brown is saying at this time. And my heart just aches for Rihanna.”

Roseanne Barr didn’t even try to be polite on her blog in this rant about the scandal. Says the former sitcom star:

“chris brown’s lies and excuses make me want to beat the crap out of him…he uses the language of the perpetrator just like every sleazy bastard who ever smacked his wife, kid mother or girlfriend around uses. you dirty bastard, I hope you go to prison for ten years. IT’S YOUR FAULT, ASSHOLE! as for all the mealy mouthed hollywood and music scene chicks that can’t bring themselves to condemn a misogynistic bully, let me say this: your time as whores for propaganda is ending, bitches.”  [Photo: WireImage]
