Podcasters Asked To Stop Interviewing Orlando Brown Until He’s Better: “He Needs Help, Not A Microphone”

Orlando Brown has been back in the headlines for his erratic behavior and insane soundbites. The former Disney Channel star has been a go-to for buzz-worthy content since leaving the television show That’s So Raven. There are many things to blame for his spiral, and it seems like every time he is in a manic state, someone is ready to hand him a platform. It has gotten so bad that people have taken to social media to request that folks stop interviewing him.

watch the video below:

When That’s So Raven ended in 2007, Orlando Brown was a 20-year-old actor who had aged out of child roles. Unfortunately for him, this meant that a lot of work was no longer available to him, and things got really dark. Like many child stars, he turned to substances to cope. Orlando Brown also had the misfortune of being born into the social media era, meaning that many of his problems would become broadcast to the world almost immediately. Run-ins with the law would eventually result with the actor being arrested in a 2016.

Around this time, Orlando started doing interviews that, unfortunately, showcased how poorly he was handling his fall from grace. In a 2016 chat with VladTV, Orlando Brown displayed troubling behavior and “confessed” to some insane interactions with his fellow celebrities. This included a relationship with Raven-Symone, where he alleged that they had been intimate by imitating the song “Mmm Bop” by Hanson. Orlando would go on to do several other viral interviews where he recalled stories about Nick Cannon, Will Smith, Michael Jackson, and Prince that all seemed fabricated. He alleged he was intimate with these people as well.

Orlando found a sparring partner in rapper Soulja Boy. After dissing The Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood star in a freestyle back in 2016, Orlando doubled down in recent weeks accusing him of being an addict and saying that the rapper is possessed by Whitney Houston. Soulja fired back, alleging that Orlando Brown was homeless. This was weeks after Orlando also came for Bow Wow and Snoop Dogg, once again with allegations of intimate relationships in unintentionally funny videos.

At one point, Orlando seemed like he was on the road to recovery briefly. After a sitdown with Dr. Phil, Brown went to rehab and eventually met a woman who got him into church. During the pandemic, he said he was getting clean and had found some new direction. Unfortunately, his latest string of interviews make it clear that things got bad for him again. While some people enjoy watching him spiral, many others are concerned and want to see the Disney alum get help.

“I wish the media would stop interviewing Orlando Brown. He needs help, not a microphone,” tweeted one person. Another said, “Orlando Brown ain’t no different than any other [expletive] that got clean and relapsed. Stop interviewing that man.” One person called out the hypocrisy in media coverage of Brown when he is sober versus when he’s not well. “It’s clear he’s back on [something’. When he was clean and rapping for Jesus, there wasn’t much coverage. Get that man some help and stop asking him questions while he’s high.” Do you think people will take this advice and get him help before it’s too late?
