Ja Rule, Styles P, N.O.R.E. and more have shared their shocked and surprised Twitter reactions to Chris Brown's first public television interview on "Larry King Live" since his domestic dispute with Rihanna earlier this year.
Ja Rule, who has been known to collaborate with various R&B singers including Lloyd and Ashanti, commented on Brown's appearance.
"Why is this n*gga chris brown wearing a powder blue bow tie...," he wrote Wednesday (September 2) night. "I like that his moms is there... Shout to all my strong women!!!" (Ja Rule's Twitter)
D-Block's Styles P took aim at the questions Larry King presented Brown.
"Yall took r.kelly back and that was a million times worst!!," he wrote during the broadcast. "As matter of fact a lot of yall motherf***ers wasn't even mad at him let cb live F*ck larry king I never seen him go this hard on anyone!

Fellow Virginia-based emcee Skillz also weighed in on the interview.
"wow count is high," he wrote. "Breezy seems like he's still tryin 2 protect her 2 sum degree. Like yall no wht I did, but I'm not gon say wht she did. It wasn't right to hit her. We no that.

Lil Mo also took Brown's side against the questions presented by King.
"So now that the LK/CB intvw is over is everyone ready 2 move on w/ their lives?," she asked. "I didn't see it but I cood get blood out of a turnip Larry KING is WACK. He's overrated and he's OLD! @cthegod wooda asked EVERYTHING and GOT ANSWERS! I live for Charlemagne on the low 4real!! pls he's old! He can retire and pass the torch! No1 feels comfortable talkin 2 an old man. It just seems weird! I didn't see it, I'm not into wack politically correct questions and rehearsed answers! They tryna ruin chirs and that's wack he's never gonna tell wut happened! I wish erbody wood see his damage control team are the TOP OF THE LINE" (Lil Mo's Twitter)
CNN, the network which aired the special, have released excerpts from the interview.
"We have to be like 10 yards away from each other," he says. "When I look at it now, it's just like, wow, like, I can't -- I can't believe that -- that actually happened. On his sentencing, Brown says that "everything comes with consequences. They want me to pick up trash remove graffiti...I'm a hard worker. It's something I'm willing to do." Chris also talks about his life with his abusive father. "I used to be scared to go to bed," he recalls. "Nobody taught us how to love one another. Nobody taught us a book on how to how to control our emotions or our anger...I wish I could have changed that night." "I just need to prove to people I can be a role model," Brown says. "That's not who I am as a person, and that's not who I promise I want to be." Chris says he misses Rihanna and admits he's not sure how to deal with her dating other guys. "I definitely would be affected by it, but, at the end of the day, I mean, we're not together, so, if she's happy, I'm cool...We'll always be friends." (CNN)
