Chris Brown follows violent breakdown on ‘Good Morning America’ with game of basketball in NYC

March 23rd, 2011 by Staff — Chris Brown blew off some steam on Tuesday after his violent outburst at “Good Morning America” by jumping into a pick-up basketball game in Manhattan’s West Village.

The volatile rapper hit the typically crowded West 4th street courts just hours after throwing a tantrum at ABC’s studios following his interview with Robin Roberts, who asked him about his infamous attack on former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

But Brown couldn’t escape the fallout from his outrageous behavior and was heckled by bystanders, ruining his relaxation.

“Chris Brown getting trash-talked by the crowd. Missing every shot,” Huffington Post contributing editor David Weiner posted on his Plixi page, along with photos of Brown on the court. “At least he’s wearing a shirt now. No sign of broken glass, either.”

Earlier in the day, Brown had stormed out of ABC’s Times Square studios shirtless after breaking a window.

“He looked like he wanted to kill somebody,” said a “GMA” insider. “He went completely nuts. He just walked off the set, ripped off his shirt and went into the room and threw a chair and broke the window.”

Brown’s antics may have also gotten him nixed from a planned performance on “Dancing with the Stars,” previously slated for next week.

“Chris was so dangerous backstage that we called 911,” a network staffer told “Now ABC has to decide if they are willing to let this man promote his music on a family show on its network or walk away from this obviously troubled young man.”
