Chris Brown took to Twitter for a venomous attack on his critics, which was later erased. Chris Brown has deleted an angry Twitter rant he posted online after he was inundated with mean comments from users claiming he shouldn’t have won a Grammy Award. Your thoughts? Check out the scoop!
Chris Brown won his first-ever Grammy award Sunday night for Best R&B Album for his album F.A.M.E. His achieving one of the highest honors in the world of music is now being marred by his reaction to criticism he received on Twitter.
Coincidentally, Brown won the award on the third anniversary of his assault of now ex-girlfriend and pop star Rihanna. Fellow celebrities such as actor Adam Scott, country singer Miranda Lambert, and Jack Osbourne took to Twitter to speak out against Brown. Osbourne tweeted, “Chris Brown…don’t forget! #chrisbrownbeatswomen.”
Brown responded in a series of tweets calling his treatment a double standard, arguing that society glorifies rappers who used to be drug dealers. The R&B artist also acknowledged that he had learned from his mistake, but that he still has to deal with day-to-day hatred. His final tweet is what has people talking. Brown tweeted, “HATE ALL YOU WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY now! That’s the ultimate *BLEEP* OFF!” The tweets were up only for a few minutes before they were deleted by either Brown or someone in his entourage.
However, that was more than enough time for his almost 8 million followers to re-tweet and screen-grab the tweets. Next came people expressing their outrage over Brown’s bravado. One person tweeted, “Chris Brown should not have performed at the Grammys.” Another person called him “a horrible human being.” The only tweets that appear in Brown’s feed from yesterday now are links to a video on Vimeo and to his new single on iTunes.
