(Newser) – Chris Brown was miffed that Oprah said a recent show on domestic abuse was “inspired by Rihanna.” The singer told People it was “a slap in my face. I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school." When TMZ asked Oprah how she felt about Brown's reaction, a rep sent this reply: "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."
