You just read this headline and you think you already know what I’m gonna say. You may but the only way you’ll know is to READ this. I put this first because people see the name Chris Brown and they’re ready to GO TO TOWN.
Yesterday, Chris Brown deleted his Twitter account for the FIDDY-ELEVENTH TIME. And folks (including me) cheered. Someone needs to take his Twitter away for his good and ours too. The dude is a jackass and Twitter just made it that much easier for him to show his jackassery on a daily basis. Plus, he’s a public relations nightmare when trusted to his own devices on a mobile device. The dude doesn’t know how to act.
What prompted the deletion was a series of vulgar tweets that Chris exchanged with comedian Jenny Johnson (@JennyJohnsonHi5). It started because Chris posted a picture of himself and captioned it with “I look old as fuck! I’m only 23…” Jenny replied with “I know! Being a worthless piece of shit can really age a person.” Chris’ reply was “take them teeth out when sucking my dick hoe!” And it all went downhill from there as they exchanged a barrage of insults that’ll make anyone clutch their pearls.
Chris eventually deleted his Twitter account. And here we are.
I haz feelings about this. But before I put them in paragraph form, I will put them in bullets. Take these things away from this if nothing else.
* I don’t like Chris Brown. And it’s not just because of Rihanna-Gate. No. The dude is an insufferable nuisance who takes every opportunity presented to him to show the hell out and act a complete belligerent dummy.
* Jenny Johnson poked a drunk, sleeping bear and wondered how she ended up in its’ mouth. In fact, she’s been poking this bear nonstop for 2 years via Twitter. And he ignored her. Yesterday was the day he decided to respond and he did it TERRIBLY.
* Jenny’s tweet to him was antagonistic but his response to her was so out of line that it’s beyond my comprehension that he thought it was ok.
* Both of them are wrong and need to go have a seat.
Have you read and absorbed those four points? Ok good. Let’s carry on into all the WHYs.
Chris Brown is an insufferable nuisance. People don’t just dislike him because of Rihanna-Gate. He’s a grade A asshole. That’s why. I am not one of the people who feels the need to remind folks about how bad he beat her when talmbout why I don’t like him. Read his antics from the past 2 years OUTSIDE of that situation and you’ll see he doesn’t know how to act. And he has a drug problem and needs therapy but whatevs. Let us unite here in agreeing that Chris Brown is an asshole. Thank you.
Jenny Johnson is a Twitter comedian who spends more time than she should trolling Chris Brown. She’s been tweeting him insults for the past two years, and apparently, he blocked her last year. But she makes sure to tweet him even when he’s talmbout the most random things. Dude could say “I just ate breakfast” and she’ll reply with “DID YOU PUNCH IT IN THE FACE TOO?” O___o Just look:
DOING. THE. MOST. And she’s a douchebag herself for these tweets.
Today, when she sent him the “worthless piece of shit” tweet, it musta gotten RTed to him and I guess he had enough. When you stoke the fire long enough, it might burn.
We know Chris already has no sense but she stooped to a level that he understands, he met her there and took it below that level to the pits of Hell. And folks are crying that she was attacked, as if it was seemingly out of the blue.
If you call me a worthless piece of shit, I will curse you out so gahtdamb proper that your scalp will hurt. I have some sense and SOME couth so I wouldn’t say the GAWD AWFUL things that Chris Brown said nor would I have said what Jenny did. I am actually gifted in the art of cussing folks out without using cuss words or hitting below the belt, but that’s just me.
Chris? Not so much. He isn’t clever enough to do much but hurl misogynistic comments at a woman who hates him as much as he hates humility. And for that, he is wack for it. HOWEVER, Jenny Johnson is not an angel in this. She’s been trolling dude for 2 years, and it’s not a good look on her part at all. I get it, she’s a comedian. I roast folks too ALLATAHM.
In fact, Tyrese has me blocked because I make fun of his bad spelling. But never have I (and never will I) send this man a tweet calling him a “worthless piece of shit” or telling him to “suck a giant ball of dicks.” Well then again, I don’t hate Tyrese. I actually like him. I think he’s prolly a nice guy who just can’t spell. But MOST importantly, I know better. And I have boundaries I don’t cross. Even during roast and wig snatching sessions. Jenny’s boundaries don’t seem clear.
Aawww now I feel bad bout roasting Tyrese for bad spelling.
What is Jenny Johnson’s point in constantly tweeting this dude about the incident? To ME, it’s not as much of her defending Rihanna as much as her relishing the demonizing of Chris Brown. She’s doing this not because she’s some evangelist for battered women. It’s because she’s being a bully and in the worst way. Constantly bringing up someone’s painful event is cruel. And she’s a huge jerk for it.
Is Jenny on a mission to make sure that all men who’ve beaten women are shamed each and everyday? I doubt it because she surely doesn’t sit in Charlie Sheen’s mentions replying to his tweets about when he shot Kelly Preston or beat Brooke Mueller. Or does she yell “WOMAN BEATER” at every mention of Sean Penn (who hit Madonna with a baseball bat)? I don’t think so. Which brings me to my other thought.
HOLY BLANKET STATEMENT, BATMAN! THIS IS A GENERALIZATION! Whatever. You will deal.
I said this on Twitter and started a hailstorm. My mentions were in shambles for a full hour. But I thought about how much backlash Chris Brown has gotten and it does not match what people who’ve done similar (if not worse) have received.
Yes, I get that Chris Brown IS more unlikeable than others because of his arrogance and his lack of humility. But the way he’s attacked pretty regularly, especially by white women, you’d think he was the only celebrity to ever put his hands on a woman. And if they’re mad that he hasn’t suffered real consequences for what he did, they need to be mad about A WHOLE LOT of other men who beat women and walked away unscathed. See: the folks I mentioned already.
At the CORE of this issue is people not giving a damb about these women who are being made punching bags at the hands of men. And a lot of people who attack Chris aren’t doing it from a place of “I stand for battered women.” Most are doing it because they want to use him as THEIR verbal punching bag. Which is fine, as long as you call a spade a spade and recognize that.
The damnation of Black men committing crimes is clearly much higher than their white counterparts and in this situation, that’s what it feels like. Hell, many folks don’t remember that John Lennon was accused of beating Yoko Ono but Ike Turner’s name is synonymous with domestic violence. But I’m not going down the rabbit hole on this point so I’ll move on.
Anyway, Jenny Johnson instigated, Chris Brown reacted. Both of them are wrong in HOW they approached this. Both need to have a seat. There are no heroes here and two villains. Huffington Post’s coverage (and reactions of many) of this is incomplete, shallow and wack because Jenny is no angelic damsel in distress. This is not “Birth of a Nation” and Chris Brown isn’t King Kong. She talked big shit like the eJerk she is (I’m one too sometimes) and he responded like the unbalanced dumbass he is. But if you talk some shit, expect to have shit thrown back at you.
Now I’m mad at the fact that I’m semi-defending Chris Brown. That upsets me greatly. Because I think he needs to go somewhere and STFU and get himself together. I am NO member of TeamBreezy.
The moral of this story: Both Chris Brown and Jenny Johnson need to go have a damb seat somewhere.
