Chris Brown's Grammy appearance draw criticism on social media

Washington, Thu, 16 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 16 (ANI): After Chris Brown's big win and two performances at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, celebrities and music fans have taken to social networking sites to criticise him for his history of domestic violence against ex-girlfriend and fellow singer, Rihanna.


Country singer Miranda Lambert is the most recent celebrity to publicly declare her ire for the 22-year-old musician.


"Twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl ... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys," Fox News quoted her as tweeting.


'Gun Powder and Lead' is one of Lambert's songs about a woman preparing to confront her abusive husband.


In 2009, Brown and Rihanna got into a physical altercation before the Grammys. Brown was charged with two felonies and sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service.


Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Eric Stonestreet from 'Modern Family' also weighed in on Twitter.


"People don't forget! #chrisbrownbeatswomen," Jack Osbourne tweeted.


"If Chris Brown had worn a wife beater, the irony would eclipse the whole show #chrisbrownbeatswomen," he said.


Michelle Branch also expressed her anger on Twitter.


"Trying not to go off on a rant but...Chris Brown...*bites tongue* have we forgiven him? #Grammys," Branch said.


Actor Wil Wheaton got right to the point.


However, Brown responded back this week with his own vitriolic tweet.


"HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate F--- OFF," Brown tweeted.


Either Brown or his handlers decided that tweet was maybe too much, because they soon deleted it.


"Chris Brown still has both an unchecked anger management problem and a massive ego," Amelia McDonell Parry, the Editor-in-Chief of the women's website The, said.


"Despite all of this, his public comeback was essentially arranged for and celebrated by the Grammy Awards! Honestly, those who 'hate' on Chris Brown are only responding to and critiquing the person he has actively and unapologetically declared himself to be," she said.


In the past twenty-four hours, bloggers have also begun a scathing attack on Brown.


A headline on the women's website The declared "please continue hating on Chris Brown".


"He is actually the worst person in the entire universe. Chris Brown, people don't hate you because you're some sort of scrappy up-and-comer in a world of people who demand the crusts be cut off their tea sandwiches. You're not being wrongly persecuted and beating the odds, here. People hate you because you beat your girlfriend until she had to go to the hospital," the writer, Jennifer Wright, said.


The website The A.V. Club penned an article under the title "Chris Brown generously just gave humankind another reason to hate him."


However, that reaction wasn't universal. A disturbing number of young women have been tweeting in support of Brown.


"I would let Chris Brown beat on me," one tweet said.


"Chris Brown can punch me in the face any day," another tweet said. (ANI)
