Chris Brown x Tiger: Give A Black Man A Chance?

Chris Brown knows about public apologies. So it’s no surprise that the singer has pledged support for Tiger Woods, who held a press conference late last week to apologize for his marital indiscretions.

Since the violent incident with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, Brown, too, has been trying to repair his public image and says he empathizes with the famed golfer.

“My hat goes off to him,” Brown told Detroit radio station Mojo in the Morning. “I support him. I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing because he is the best at it.”

Speaking from experience, Brown thinks people should focus on Tiger’s achievements rather than his personal life. Following the release of his latest album, Graffiti, the singer recently dropped a new mixtape and, like Woods, he’s moving past the drama and focusing on his craft.

“I think this goes for me and him—his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them,” said Brown. “He plays golf. That’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talk about. Even with me, I do music, I sing songs, I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer. But people make mistakes.

“I think people always deserve a second chance… I know my fans gave me a second chance,” Brown continued. “People have to realize that everybody’s human. The good thing is, if you learn from your mistakes, then that’s a part of life.” –Clover Hope
