Twitter Attacks: Should Chris Brown Have Taken The High Road?

Chris Brown

Chris Brown, 24 is at it again: treating a woman poorly. This time, he was provoked through Twitter.

Happy Cyber Monday! We're celebrating on Twitter, now that Chris Brown's account is no longer active. But he (of course) got in some verbal abuse before deleting his account. However, was he justified in defending himself when he got attacked on Twitter, or should he have taken the high road?

On Sunday night, the "Don't Wake Me Up" singer took to Twitter to say, "I look old as f--k! I'm only 23." So, writer and comedian Jenny Johnson couldn't help but respond with, "I know! Being a worthless piece of s--t can really age a person."

Burn! We couldn't agree more with Johnson that negativity really can age a person. Brown, who was seen celebrating Thanksgiving in Europe with on-again-off-again girlfriend Rihanna, must be a great multitasker; while out with his girlfriend he tweeted, "Take them teeth out when u sucking my d--- H-E." So, it leads us to wonder if Johnson had that coming for attacking him in the first place? Or should he have taken the high road?

His vile insults didn't stop there and included sexist bashing and name calling—saying Johnson was "worthless" and a "thirsty b-tch." Johnson replied to more tweets with,  "I have zero respect for a person who seems unapologetic for the terrible crime he committed and shows no signs of changing." How can you have respect for someone when he's still trashing women and seemingly violent? The point is if Brown didn't want to have to delete his Twitter account and show people he's changed, he could have just not engaged and left Johnson to her devices.

Oh, and to make matters worse, right before deleting his account he tweeted "Just ask Rihanna if she mad????"

Not only does that last tweet prove that he's not remorseful or regretful of the 2007 incident, but it also shows his lack of respect for Rihanna, who claims she is still in love with the woman-abuser.

Tell us: Should celebrities take the high road when being Twitter-attacked? Or do they have the right to argue back?
