The GRAMMYs was certainly a night to remember. We remembered idol Whitney Houston, rooted for six time GRAMMY winner Adele, witnessed some controversy with Nicki Minaj, and now there are Chris Brown haters all over the internet.
This was Breezy’s first time back at the annual awards show since his assault against ex girlfriend, Rihanna back in 2009. His invite and performance slot alone caused a lot of talk amongst viewers — I know my Facebook news feed was filled with criticisms and opinions on the matter.
All I wrote was that he had great dance moves and I got flack for it by some of my friends!
Facebook wasn’t the only social media website talking about Chris Brown. There had been some harsh words on Twitter about his appearance, performance, and GRAMMY win.
While [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michelle Branch[/lastfm] expressed their disgust with Brown, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Roots[/lastfm]‘ Questlove showed forgiveness for the R&B artist.
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.—

Everyone deserves a second chance. Congrats Breezy.—

What did Brown have to say about the matter? Well, the tweet has since been deleted but it read, “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F–K OFF!”
Another Tweet read “Strange how we pick and choose who to hate! Let me ask u this. Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do. Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???”

Brown claimed that he has someone do his posts for him, and demanded that they were deleted immediately. Whether it is true or not is something that only he knows. In addition to the harsh words exchanged over the interwebs, there is a petition stating that the Recording Academy is responsible for apologizing not only for inviting Chris Brown to perform, but for equating The Grammy Awards with a domestic abuse victim.
I think this MIGHT be a bit extreme…
“I think people deserve a second chance, you know,” said GRAMMY Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich, explaining why Brown was invited on the show. “If you’ll note, he has not been on the GRAMMYs for the past few years and it may have taken us a while to kind of get over the fact that we were the victim of what happened.”
