; it’s the mental labor,” Brown told BET 106 & Park co-host Rocsi during an episode airing Thursday, November 12. “It’s things that a 19-year-old or a 20-year-old has to deal with. It’s not just the room saying, ‘We don’t like you’; it’s the world. It kind of messes with a real person. I’m a real guy. I’m not a mannequin or a robot. I’m a real dude, so that hurts.” Just this week Brown was verbally attacked by a passerby who yelled the words “You f***ing beater….I hope someone beats the f***ing crap out of you”. While smiling and addressing fans, Brown appeared to ignore the woman, who had been captured on TMZ camera uttering the insults. Addressing situations similar to the one earlier this week, Brown went on to tell 106 & Park viewers that he tried to hide for quite some time after the ‘incident’ with Rihanna. “I didn’t want people to really see me,” he said. “I was nervous and embarrassed — just really standoffish. I don’t think I would be human if I didn’t feel sorry for myself. I do feel like it was a mistake I made, and I’m embarrassed with a mistake I made. It’s something I have to live with, but it’s something that I’m gonna change.”
