Kanye West Asks Public To Give Chris Brown ‘A Break’

Kanye West has asked the public to give R&B singer Chris Brown a ‘break’.

According to Reuters, the rapper made his plea during the taping of his VH1 Storytellers episode earlier this month in Los Angeles.


Brown has been heavily scrutinized by the media and the public since he was arrested earlier this month for assaulting his girlfriend Rihanna.

“Can’t we give Chris a break? I know I make mistakes in life,” Kanye said.

The rapper’s plea was reportedly met with applause and he also defended pop star Michael Jackson and Olympian swimmer Michael Phelps who made headlines earlier this year after being photographed smoking marijuana.

“Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing … He’s a real f—in’ person; he makes mistakes,” Kanye said.

“O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not?,” the rapper added. “What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?”

Kanye also took time out to take shots at Thom Yorke, the front man of rock band Radiohead.

Kanye claims that he idolizes the band and that he was hurt that Yorke snubbed him backstage at The Grammy awards earlier this month. So in retaliation, the rapper revealed he ‘sat the fuck down” when the band took the stage.

Bill Flanagan, the executive producer of VH1 Storytellers, said that some of the comments West made wont make the show airs later this month.
