Poor Chris Brown. It’s been two years since the incident in which Brown assaulted Rihanna before the 2009 Grammy Awards, yet, the R&B singer is still being reminded of his dastardly act.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper recently got on his soapbox to criticize Brown and the idea to cast him in ‘Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,’ which is a film adaptation of Steve Harvey’s self-help relationship book of the same name.

“Ladies and gentlemen, particularly ladies, Chris Brown has been cast in a movie. And not just any movie, it’s a romantic comedy based on a self-help book about relationships,” Cooper told viewers on his nightly show, ‘Anderson Cooper 360.’ “And I, for one, can not 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.”

Cooper then went on to point out Brown’s other past transgressions including trashing the offices of ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ and what he deemed was Brown’s insincere apology after the incident.

As for the movie role, Cooper thinks it pure comedy that Brown would star in a film about relationships since he’s been unsuccessful in own relationships. “The movie is scheduled to come out in April with Chris Brown’s halfheartedly apology coming sometime thereafter I assume,” he says. “We don’t know what role he’s going to play, but I know one thing is for sure that with Chris Brown attached to the project, the movie sure to be an unforgettable hit on the Ridiculist.”

For his part, Brown responded to Copper’s rants like a true gentlemen via his Twitter account. “I guess people need ratings!!! Lol!!! It’s cool. Much love!” he tweeted.
