Whether you’re reading Chris Brown twitter quotes, following Chris Brown on Instagram or jamming to the Chris Brown Twitter song, it’s impossible to deny that Chris Brown can be entertaining. However, Chris Brown’s twitter account can turn ugly fast.
Don’t believe us? Here are five Chris Brown twitter posts we wish we could forget!
In 2016, R&B singer Kehlani shocked fans by posting an Instagram picture from a hospital bed. In the caption, she wrote that she had tried to commit suicide. Some fans sent her support. Others critiqued her for posting about her suicide attempt online. The one critique no one can forget?
Chris Brown’s tweet: “There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram Doing sh*t for sympathy so them comments under your pics don’t look bad.”
First off, people pointed out that Chris Brown’s comments exemplify a major issue with suicide today: people are often shamed into silence, and expected to pretend that depression or suicide doesn’t happen. Secondly, as Twitter users quickly posted:
Johnson has been making fun of Brown online ever since his 2009 arrest for beating then-girlfriend Rhianna. Brown seemed to have reached his breaking point, though, when Johnson made this doozy of a tweet:
Johnson’s tweet might have been a bit brutal. However, many pointed out that Brown’s sexually graphic, disturbing replies were in no way an appropriate response. (We won’t include the entire tweets, but one tweet involved her “taking her teeth out” before giving a blowjob). The Twitter war triggered such big backlash, Chris Brown ended up deleting his Twitter account…for a few years, anyway.
Besides calling Kehlani’s 2016 suicide attempt a cry for attention, Brown also gave dating advice during his Twitter rant: “Girls be made at a *** for *** around wit **** but her DMs got more names then the Declaration of Independence. #YEAHIMTHROWINGSHADE.”
Although he didn’t use her name, Brown also accused Kehlani of cheating on her ex-boyfriend and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kyrie Irving. Kyrie Irving later took to Twitter to clarify that no cheating happened and to send his “love and compassion…for [Kehlani] and her family.” Brown’s response?
Brown’s Twitter history also shows that he’s no stranger to homophobic slurs. In 2010, he called rapper Raz-B a “d*ck in da booty a** lil boy” after Raz-B made a comment on Brown’s treatment of women. He later defended himself to his fans, tweeting: “I’m not homophobic! He’s just disrespectful!”
Brown went back to his old ways, though, in 2014 by calling a 17-year-old twitter user a “f*g.” He quickly deleted the tweet but, like usual, it had already been snapshotted plenty of times.
As The Berry explains, Brown doesn’t have the best track record with women. He was arrested for beating Rhianna in 2009; another woman filed charges for third-degree assault in 2015; and a woman claimed Brown pointed a gun at her in 2016. So, it makes sense that, when Chris Brown tweeted that “Summer ’17 has to be about the women,” some people tweeted responses like this one:
Sure, this isn’t one of the worst tweets Chris Brown has made – in a long shot. However, saying you value women and showing true respect are two very different things. Hopefully, Chris Brown’s twitter post will be correct and this summer will be about women…including women’s right to safe relationships and freedom from sexist attacks.
Until Chris Brown proves that he really has changed, though, we’ll keep this tweet on our list of Chris Brown twitter posts we’d like to forget.
