Jenny Johnson vs. Chris Brown: What the…?

If y’all aren’t following comedy writer and overall badass Jenny Johnson on Twitter (@JennyJohnsonHi5), you’re missing out on one of the Twitterverse’s greatest and most prolific Tweeters. The Houston writer is willing to say what she’s thinking, and she has more than 300,000 followers who can’t get enough of her.

Unfortunately, this Thanksgiving break, Johnson got into a nasty Twitter feud with hip hop artist Chris Brown that ended with terrifying death threats from Brown’s followers and Brown eventually shutting off his Twitter account for a day.

“I mean, he DOES look pretty rough for a 23 year old…”

While it’s true that Johnson prompted the dispute when she called him a “worthless piece of $%!#,” it’s amazing that her commentary elicited a response from Brown, who one might easily assume is immune to such attacks by now.

After an ample bit of name-calling, some proposed fecophilia and a well-placed spelling lesson, Johnson called it a day. But Brown’s fans (better known as “Breezys”) continued the offensive in Brown’s place.

Luckily, Johnson collected the best (and worst spelled) Tweets for us to enjoy, and those have been retweeted more than 1,500 times. Fortunately, everyone except for Brown’s fans took Johnson’s side on the matter

It was touch and go there for a little while, but fortunately things seem to have simmered by down.

However, Brown’s reign of terror against women continues in full effect on every medium, and nobody — not even the comedians — are safe. But, like, seriously.
