It figures that Chris – NOT the world’s leading expert on public image, FYI – is telling you to stop hating on adulterous golf pro Tiger Woods

Chris Brown has had his fair share of public scrutiny after getting served with five years of probation for his 2009 domestic assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna, so of course he’s siding with another wrong-doing public figure. The 20-year-old rapper told a radio show Feb. 24, he sympathizes with Tiger Woods‘ struggle to rebuild his reputation and thinks the world should leave the golf pro alone.

“I think, even with me, I do music, I sing songs, I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes,” Chris said in an interview on the radio show ‘Mojo in the Morning‘ Feb. 24. “So my hat is off to him — I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.”

Even though their scandals vary drastically in severity — Chris pleaded guilty to felony assault, while Tiger, 34, can’t be legally charged for cheating on his wife with an alleged 15 women — the abusive boyfriend compared his plight in the public eye to the pro-golfer’s.

“Whatever his personal life is – and I think this goes for me and him — his personal life is his personal life,” Chris explained.
