Much to the dismay of her fans and friends, Hip Hop star Rihanna has been dropping hints in her music and tweets that she may be reuniting with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who was arrested for physically abusing her three years ago while the two were romantically involved. He has been on probation ever since.

A good amount of criticism for the two musicians has come from Twitter, where fans can speak out directly to celebrities and popular messages are quickly amplified and then classified as trending subjects on a global or national scale.

On Saturday, March 3, Twitter users took to the social media website to express their opinions on Chris Brown and Rihanna, under the banner If Chris Brown was my teacher.... While the bulk of the posts criticized Brown for his notorious temper and history of domestic abuse, some Twitter users took the opportunity to praise the singer-rapper-dancer, demonstrating that there is still a contingent of mostly female fans who unfortunately choose to look past Brown's unsavory past and instead pledge their love for the artist based on his good looks and dance moves.

Here are some of the best tweets that used the hash-tag #IfChrisBrownWasOurTeacher.

Chris Brown has been accused of stealing a woman's iPhone after she photographed him leaving a Miami club. The case of snatch and grab may land Breezy in jail, as it violates the conditions of his probation. However, the police claim that they are still looking into the matter and have yet to issue a warrant for his arrest. The police department recently stated that they would be interviewing Brown, or possibly his lawyer, in order to clear up the matter.
