“We Are Humans”: Kelly Rowland Doubles Down On Siding With Chris Brown
The past is creeping back again for the ‘No Guidance’ artist. But, some people are advocating on his behalf. One of the names is Kelly Rowland. During the AMAs 2022 night, Rowland was infuriated at the audience members when she announced the winner for the ‘Favorite R&B Artist’ at the awards show. As soon as she said Chris Brown, the audience was making audible booing noises.
The ‘Say My Name’ artist was amused at the audience’s reaction. She said, “Now Chris Brown is not here tonight so I’m accepting this award on his behalf”. The booing continued and she said, “Excuse me…chill out”.
On November 21st, TMZ approached the artist to get her reaction to the whole fiasco. Kelly reacted saying, “I believe that grace is very real. And we all need a dose of it. And before we point fingers at anybody, we should realize how grateful we are for every moment that we get. Even our own things that we have. I just think it’s important to remember to be human. We are humans.”

In 2009, Chris Brown came under a lot of fire when he assaulted Rihanna and was accused of domestic violence. Nonetheless, the actress and singer want people to forgive him for his past including the assault.
She continued, “We all need to be forgiven for anything that we could be doing. Anything that we’re thinking. We all come up short in some kind of way. And grace is real. We are humans. And everybody deserves grace.”
