After Chris Brown appeared to lipsync his way through some of his performance last night at the Billboard Awards, Twitter lit up with caustic critiques.
Chrissy Teigen, who maintains a lively and often snarky (but in a good way) Twitter feed, weighed in, and then was seemingly attacked by #TeemBreezy fans. In a tweet, she questioned, "Why sing when you can dance?"
Which got Chris Brown's fans in a mood. Because they started just sending her all sorts of hate, which she calmly retweeted to her 100k+ followers, to display just how mean and Brown's fans could come off. After a few hours, she finally offered some thoughts. In a series of 140-character missives, she wrote (ed. note: Tweets have been lightly edited for punctuation and clarity):
"You guys are too young for this shit. Too fucking young. How you can even form these sentences at someone you don’t know makes me so sad. Don’t throw around the term ho, cunt, slut. You’re women. WE ARE WOMEN. and don’t ever think a man can fucking control you. Seriously. this isn’t your fucking job. Stop being psychotic. Be strong women. Listen to opinions without spewing pure maliciousness. I’ve had comments ranging from 'kill yourself you stupid HO' to 'gold digging cunt' [to] 'get a fucking job,' etc. Because I don’t like [Chris Brown]? I like some of his music too. YOU can like it. You CAN. But WHY the insane hate and 'team'?? Why can’t you just CHILL THE FUCK OUT? In all seriousness, and this has been entertaining, I’m so disturbed. What are you even doing this for? Some good music and dancing? Good god. DO BETTER."
