Rosie O'Donnell Defends Chris Brown's Chair-Throwing GMA Incident, Says She Wanted To Do The Same At The View!

Chris Brown has found an unlikely defender for his GMA outburst in former View co-host Rosie O'Donnell.
On her Sirius radio show, Rosie revealed that she understood Brown's chair-throwing antics after GMA host Robin Roberts brought up the Rihanna incident ... because she often felt like doing the same on The View.
"Part of me wanted to take a chair and throw it through the window at The View after all that happened," Rosie said, referencing her infamous fight with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck which eventually led her to quit the chat show.
"I don't know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anybody else," O'Donnell said, forgetting that celebrities are routinely questioned about regrettable things they may have done in the past whether their publicist forbids it or not.
"I felt mildly angry at Robin Roberts," she continued. "I felt like writing her and going: 'Can you take a look at this again and see if maybe you find -- in any way -- your responsibility in this?'"
Read what else Rosie had to say about her ex-employers ... after the jump.
She called The View office a "rat-infested cellar" and a prison!
