Chris Brown, Jenny Johnson Twitter Feud Spurs Death Threats From Fans
Chris Brown may be done with Twitter -- for now -- but where he left off, his army of fans has picked up.
Following the 24-year-old "Don't Wake Me Up" singer's vulgar feud with comedienne Jenny Johnson over the weekend, Brown's fans (a.k.a. "Team Breezy") took to the micro-blogging social-media site to hurl their own vile insults and threats at Johnson.
"Super mad right now if I see that Jenny Johnson I'll stab her to death," Twitter user @_Haineko_ posted on Monday, Nov. 26.
"Stfu b---h honestly, I wanna sit on your face and stab 1235 needles in your eyeball, you son of a motherless goat," Brown fan @Trigga_breezy wrote.
Johnson, for her part, called out the haters in a tweet and asked site administrators to look into the blood-thirsty messages.
"We are doing a bit of investigating...to see who are writing them and if they should be taken seriously -- or [if they're] just something we need to ignore," the writer told Celebuzz on Tuesday, Nov. 27. "We are trying to discover if it's just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else."
Either way, she boasted, "I was proud that after six months of harassing the guy, all my hard work paid off."
Johnson wasn't the only one to take aim at Brown this week. After their feud -- which began when she replied to the singer's comment about looking older than his years with "I know! Being a worthless piece of s--t can really age a person" -- several other celebs jumped on the Brown-hating bandwagon.
Late-night host Chelsea Handler, for one, called Rihanna's on-and-off boyfriend a "moron" and criticized his explicit rants.
Brown also came under fire from the ladies on The View.

"I think it's disgusting, first of all," co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said on Monday morning. "But also, it seems like verbal rape to me. And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself."
"I don't think that's verbal rape," Whoopi Goldberg countered. "Both were verbally assaulting each other, and this is what we need to get rid of on Twitter, because it happens too often and too much to too many people."
