Chris Brown won the Grammy for Best R&B Album on Sunday. For the most part, everyone was pretty quiet about his return to the Grammy stage. (Other than Miranda Lambert, who slammed the singer.)
Considering Whitney Houston had just passed, maybe he got off a little easy in the media criticism department. His stage return also was the three-year anniversary of Brown’s horrific assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna.
I, for one, wasn’t happy to see him back on the stage. I know a lot of you jumped on me for not being able to “get over it” – which fine, you’re entitled to your own opinion. But so am I – and I wasn’t ready to see him back on the stage.
According to the Huffington Post, celebrities like Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Eric Stonestreet expressed their dismay at seeing Brown honored.
Actor Wil Wheaton tweeted, “Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rhianna should read the police report on exactly what he did.”
Those comments didn’t sit well with Brown, who responded by tweeting, “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF.”
Brown later deleted the tweet, but not before Mashable editor Christina Warren took a screen shot of the offending tweet.
There’s that cocky a**hole you’ve missed for the last three years!
