Chris Brown wants to forget the past.

Chris Brown might have completed anger management classes, but it looks like he needs to revisit his coursework after his morning meltdown on "Good Morning America."

Brown appeared on the show to promote his new album, "F.A.M.E.," out today. Interviewer Robin Roberts grilled Brown on his violent fight with Rihanna in 2009 - and it appears that Brown wasn't too happy about it. He allegedly trashed his dressing room backstage and broke a window in the ABC studios, sending shards of glass flying down to the sidewalk - and onto people on the street.

ABC official's didn't have time to detain Brown - he quickly made an exit sans shirt. Don't worry - he tweeted about it.

"I'm so over people bringing this past s--t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there[sic] bulls--t." Brown wrote before he deleted it.

It appears that Brown is over apologizing for his attack on Rihanna. However, we got to think about other celebs who have begged for forgiveness from fans after they screwed up. Luckily for us, there are plenty.

Kanye West

Kanye West is the poster child for televised freakouts - he famously stole the microphone from Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs. Afterward, he apologized for his actions.

"I'm sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom (Andrea). I spoke to her mother right after and she said the same thing my mother would've said. She is very talented! I like the lyrics about being a cheerleader and she's in the bleachers! I'm in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment!" West wrote on his blog afterward.

That doesn't mean he's not over the controversy now. He lashed out on Twitter after "Today Show" host Matt Lauer grilled him on the VMA incident.

"I don't mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show ... and that's a very nice way for me to put it! HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT. I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don't trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don't do press anymore. I can't be everything to everybody anymore," he wrote.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods was public enemy number one when news of his multiple affairs broke in the media. He later apologized for his actions during a press conference, admitting that he was a sex addict.

"I know I have bitterly disappointed all of you," said the golfer during a February 2010 press conference. "For all that I have done, I am so sorry... I had affairs, I cheated. What I did was not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame."

Woods managed to tackle his sex addiction and rehit the course in summer 2010. He's now even able to joke about his dalliances - he appeared on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" last week and let the comedian poke fun at him.

"So, what have you been up to?" Fallon asked Woods.

"Oh, not much," Woods replied, laughing.

John Galliano

John Galliano was lauded as a genius for his eccentric Dior designs. However, a video showing Galliano trashing Jewish people and praising Hitler got the French designer fired from his post.

Of course, Galliano apologized for his actions.

"I only have myself to blame and I know that I must face up to my own failures and that I must work hard to gain people's understanding and compassion. To start this process I am seeking help and all I can hope for in time is to address the personal failure which led to these circumstances and try and earn people's forgiveness," Gallinao said.

"I have fought my entire life against prejudice, intolerance and discrimination, having been subjected to it myself. In all my work my inspiration has been to unite people of every race, creed, religion and sexuality by celebrating their cultural and ethnic diversity through fashion. That remains my guiding light."

Galliano also vowed to go into rehab. However, can rehab help racist people?
