Anderson Cooper Slams Chris Brown

This week on Anderson Cooper 360, Anderson took a break from the Somali famine and all that other trivial international news to report on what really matters: Chris Brown's budding Hollywood career. The CNN host spent several minutes railing against the singer*, who was recently cast in Think Like a Man, the film adaptation of a relationship self-help book by actor and comedian Steve Harvey. Cooper added Brown to his "RidicuList" and pondered, with just a hint of sarcasm, why it took so long to finally cast him in a rom-com. "I, for one," Cooper said, "cannot imagine why this did not happen sooner, because if there's one thing you can say about Chris Brown, who's currently on probation for viciously assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, he just oozes romance." Ouch. You can watch the video below.

*Post has been corrected to show Chris Brown usually sings, doesn't rap much
