Chris Brown--the R&B singer once arrested for an alleged assault against pop star and former girlfriend, Rihanna--has struck back against those that were angered about his involvement in the 2012 Grammy Award show.
HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate FUCK OFF! tweeted Brown, among many other snippets of text in a Twitter rant. The remarks were eventually deleted, but social media news website Mashable preserved a screenshot of one of the tweets.
Brown was upset because many criticized his performance as well as the fact that he won an award. So many criticisms flooded Twitter during the show's airtime that wife beater became a trending topic.
Here's what Brown reportedly said in his Twitter rant:
Strange how we pick and choose who to hate! Brown reportedly wrote. Let me ask u this. Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do. Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???
Miranda Lambert, popular country music singer-songwriter, didn't hold any punches when she tweeted, how dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl.
Rachel Sklar, the New York-based media blogger, was one of many reporters live blogging the event to complain while Brown was on camera. During Chris Brown's performance, Sklar tweeted a photo of a young Barbara Streisand from the movie Funny Girl. Her tweet said, 'Funny Girl' is on TCM (h/t @GlynnMacN) - switched here to boycott Chris Brown. #ChrisBrownGrammyProtestBath....
Others on the web have also been vocal about the Brown's inclusion in the Grammy's, too. Twitter user @doctorpcircus tweeted a photo a bruised and battered Rihanna. His caption simply read, Chris brown is a really inspiring person, an obvious criticism of the lack of acknowledgment of his crime from the Grammy Awards.
Brown has not taken responsibility for his Twitter rant.
Brown didn't Tweet that, someone does his posting to Twitter and when he saw that he ordered it taken down immediately, Brown's camp said in a statement sent to RadarOnline.com.
