According to The Huffington Post writer Ross Luippold, R&B singer (and convicted woman-beater) Chris Brown engaged in a Twitter battle with comedy writer Jenny Johnson after she tweeted the following snarky message in reply to Brown’s complaint about looking old:
The two duked it out for a number of tweets and retweets, including Brown calling Johnson a “hoe”:
And while we all know that engaging in a Twitter battle isn’t exactly high-society discourse, particularly with someone who has as excitable followers as the so-called Team Breezy, Brown’s Twitter attacks seem to have resulted in his Twitter account being deactivated. It can’t be determined as of now whether he pulled it himself, or if his account was suspended by Twitter, but as of 10:30pm EST, @ChrisBrown is currently unavailable.
Chris Brown has gotten into Twitter trouble before, as Luippold points out, attacking other critics and then attempting to delete the tweets.
What do you think of Brown’s Twitter activities? Should his account be suspended for these tweets? Does he have a right to defend himself when critiqued by comedians or critics such as Johnson?
How far is too far?
