HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- TV One Access caught up with several stars at last night’s NAACP Image Awards pre-show gala and asked them about the Chris Brown/Rihanna incident and the rumors that are running rampant throughout all of Black Hollywood.
Here’s what Columbus Short, Alfonso Ribeiro, Judge Mathis & TV One Access’s own Tatyana Ali had to say:
Columbus Short:“It’s tough, because Chris is like a little brother to me, so it’s like, you know, he’s young and I hope that — we all make mistakes, I hope that they can come back from it and you know, be better from it. But it’s tough, it’s a tough one.”
Alfonso Ribeiro:“I feel bad for both of them for whatever happened, whatever took place that night is a sad situation for both of them and I wish them both well.”
Tatyana Ali:“It’s really sad, because they’re both so young and honestly, as a young woman myself, my sister and I were driving and we’re constantly like, ‘Oh my god, I can not believe that that happened.’”
Judge Greg Mathis:“My advice for him would be to make sure that he demonstrates the remorse that I hope that he has and not be arrogant and assured that he will get away with anything, and to understand that if indeed that he has committed this crime, that he owes a debt to society and a debt to Rihanna.”
