After Chris Brown caused controversy backstage on Good Morning America last week, Chris Brown appeared and performed on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night, much to the chagrin of many of the celebrities, according to sources close to the show.

As source notes that when celebrities appear on the show, many of the celebrity dancers look forward to spending the day with the celebrity performer in past seasons. With Chris Brown, however, this wasn’t the case… and not because of the new group of celebrities this season, but because of his actions on GMA just seven days before where he allegedly threw a chair at a window, potentially hurting people walking on the sidewalk.

Cheryl Burke and Kirstie Alley were especially critics of the move by ABC to have him appear on the show. Burke, who herself was a victim of domestic violence actually spoke out to a media source saying she was against him appearing, but she had no control over the situation. Alley also was against it. A source noted, “Kirstie wanted to spend as little time as possible around him. It was hard enough for he to be in the same building as him.”

Brown is again in the news recently as Rihanna recently spoke out to Rolling Stone, talking about why she recently took down her restraining order against Brown because of how he was getting snubbed professionally due to not be allowed at awards shows and such to perform when she was there because of her 100 feet restraining order she has against Brown. “What he did was a personal thing — it had nothing to do with his career,” she said. “Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can’t perform at awards shows — that definitely made it difficult for him.”
