During an appearance on BET's 106 & Park, Chris Brown publicly apologized for his behavior backstage after his GMA appearance.

According to transcripts from the BET show, 106 & Park, Chris Brown apologized for freaking out during a recent appearance on Good Morning America.

"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions," Chris Brown said. "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."

During his appearance on Good Morning America, Brown was questioned about contact with his former girlfriend Rihanna now that the restraining order against him has been relaxed. Unfortunately Robin Roberts' question left the rapper a bit miffed. After a performance of his new single Yeah 3X, Chris Brown became enraged backstage. Reports say he took his anger out on his dressing room and a nearby window.

On 106 & Park, Brown continued, "Yes, I got very emotional. And I apologize for acting like that."

The singer admitted he got flustered when the line of questioning shifted from his professional life to his personal life. He assured fans it wasn't his intention to put anyone in danger at Good Morning America but he had to get out "the anger that I had inside of me."

Chris Brown has been asked back to Good Morning America and Roberts said, "We wish him the absolute best and... we've extended the invitation to him and I sure hope that he takes us up on it, because we'd love to have another chat with him."

Do you think Chris Brown was sincere in his apology to the fans and GMA? Should GMA have moved on with a different line of questioning? Tell us, we want to know.

He is a no good talentless women beater...Chris Brown needs to find a rock and climb under and stay there or go back to where he came from the bottom of the pond... POND SCUM!!

Good Morning America should have better standards than to have asked Chris Brown on in the first place, let him get away with unacceptable behavior, and then ask him to come back! Why weren't charges filed? This animal has anger problem and needs help. Robin and the GMA staff - what are you thinking!

“…I had to get out that anger I had inside of me” What??? Oh, you mean like the violent way you did that night with Rihanna - by beating her up? That’s exactly what you did in the GMA offices this week. His behavior is absolutely disgusting. All he proves is that he truly cannot control himself. He took America back to the incident with Rihanna and showed he has not changed at all. He needs therapy. He needs to find a healthier way to “…get out that anger.” It is ludicrous to expect the interviewer not to ask about it. That is part of his penance to the public - and particularly any young man who looks up to him. No apologies necessary from GMA. Even if he was upset, he showed he doesn't know how to handle his anger. There are tactful ways to move past the questions without acting out in such a way as he did. We cannot afford another deviant role model. You have a responsibility to your fans Mr. Brown. Today, we as a society let people out of that responsibility by not holding them accountable far too often. The buck stops here.

Clearly a young man with a lot of talent, Meltdown Brown has demonstrated a pattern of losing control when his narcissistic sense of superiority feels threatened. After immersing himself in self-pity and plaintive appeals to be allowed to get on with his life, Mr. Brown showed that he could not keep his cool, even when his career was on the line. Worse still, by revealing that he is, in all likelihood, a violent psychopath, he has shown that probably he is dangerous and that there are compelling reasons why his past misbehavior cannot simply be made to go away

What a freakin' DOUCHEBAG!

Tom March 24, 2011 | 1:19 PM

I think it wasn't sincere but on the other hand I think they know he has a temper and were trying to get him to act out. That's sux for him haha Dueces... at the end of the day everyones got something ed up about the no ones perfect... except some of you in these comments some of you sound to good to be true!

He is scary and ugly (inside AND out)

Julie March 24, 2011 | 1:05 PM

I dont believe him! You did not fully see what he did to Rihanna. He has an anger problem. He needs to go to classes and focus his life and on how to deal with anger and emotion. Put the music career on hold and find God and take that nervous, natural aggravation and do something constructive with it. Maybe a construction or building or maybe he could paint or something, but not near any children, not until he deals with his emotions. If this keeps up, he is going back to jail.

No ones perfect, get over it. I'm sorry to bring it up but no one knows what really happened in the car that night but those two and god. Stop judging someone else's life when it has no effect on you.

Kimbo March 24, 2011 | 1:03 PM

He is scary and extremely UGLY (inside AND out)

Tom March 24, 2011 | 1:01 PM

Hey, he can beat his girlfriend and bust up an ABC newsroom as much as he likes and he'll be welcome back to the network any time. I just hope his agent has told him to never kiss another dude, cuz, you know, that would be bad and have to result in some SERIOUS disciplining. Good thing ABC has such high moral standards.

Keith March 24, 2011 | 12:57 PM

This is a joke, right? I mean, he didn't apologize at all! Someone said some words which upset him. So what?, that happens to everyone. But it is YOUR anger, not the person who said whatever. You have to be man (or woman) enough to own your feelings and resolve your feelings in a non-violent way. Period. No excuses. Chris didn't apologize for using violence to express his anger, he doesn't even see a problem with it. He feels it was justified as he had to get out "the anger that I had inside of me." Can you spell "sociopath"? Plain and simple.

sandy March 24, 2011 | 12:50 PM

He is a no-talent pig. Only idiots will watch or buy the crap he is trying to pass off as music.

Kevin March 24, 2011 | 12:46 PM

He said he was sorry, nobody got hurt, charges were not pressed. Time to move on folks.

phyllisbrown March 24, 2011 | 12:41 PM

The guys a thug and hopefully he will fade and wind up in jail where he should have been already. He will be in jail,he can't help himself. You can't fix stupid.

Amy March 24, 2011 | 12:25 PM

I absolutely agree with Alex S.

joenamherst March 24, 2011 | 12:21 PM

Sorry Chris, I don't buy your apology. You are a very violent person. You should be in jail. So should your fans, if you have any left!

Apology? Hah! Actions speak louder than words. If anything this was a huge slap in the face (again) to Rihanna and women in general. What? He thinks he can just resort to violent outbursts whenever he wants and then "apologize"? It's obvious he's not sorry at all about abusing women or others around him. If he had truly been sorry about the way he acted, he wouldn't have acted out in the same way AGAIN. It's obvious he's made no effort to change his behavior, but again blaming it on "the anger that I had inside of me." You don't think next time a woman "pisses him off", he's not going to do the same thing, when he can't even control himself in public? Shame on GMA for welcoming him back.
