So word is Chris Brown was offended that Oprah did a show last March about domestic violence, based on Brown's public assault on his lover, the singer Rihanna. The incident took place in a car after they had both been to the Grammys. Brown was found guilty, ordered to stay away from Rihanna, sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, and six months of community service.

When Oprah did the show about domestic violence, Brown says he was hurt that she made him the poster boy for the issue. Brown felt Oprah had been too hard on him, and expected her to show more allegiance to him because he had sung at Oprah's school. He actually told People, "I commend Oprah on being like, 'This is a problem,' but it was a slap in my face."

Yes, he used that turn of phrase -- "slap in my face." Excuse me, Chris, but you just don't get it.

Today, Oprah responded to his comment through her press rep. "Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school, but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs."


One source, who has direct connections to Brown's endorsement opportunities said, "He's done."

"Whatever goodwill he had, he's totally ruined it by saying that. What was he thinking? And who the hell goes up against Oprah? It just shows he doesn't think. No one is going to want him as the face of their brand," the source added.

Brown argues that he, "did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could have been more helpful, like, 'OK, I'm going to help both of these people out,'" he added.
