On Sunday night, the source of the polarization of America was not any suit in DC but one letterman jacket in LA.
Chris Brown’s performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards — his first Grammy appearance since the 2009 incident with then girlfriend Rihanna that led to a felony assault charge — caused quite the uproar in the Twitter-verse, with supporters and non-fans showing equal passion. But how did his fellow stars feel about the “comeback”?
