Chris Brown, Jenny Johnson Twitter Feud: Comedian Says Death Threats Are Being Investigated (EXCLUSIVE)
“We are doing a bit of investigating... to see who are writing them and if they should be taken seriously -- or just something we need to ignore," Jenny Johnson told Celebuzz, in an exclusive interview.
“We are trying to discover if it’s just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else."
Some members of Brown's loyal fan base have threatened to kill Johnson following their Twitter exchange at the weekend. Responding to being called a "piece of sh*t," Brown told the Houston, Texas-based comedienne she should perform oral sex on him and then threatened to defecate in her eye.
“I’m just letting it go right now,” Johnson said, when asked if she intended on taking the matter further.
“I was surprised to wake up and read about it and find my name on The View and CNN."
Brown quit Twitter soon after the exchange.
“I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing," Johnson added, about the 23-year-old's decision to stop posting messages on the social network site. "Only time will tell."
This wasn't the first time Johnson had taken aim at Brown, however. In an interview with Paper Magazine in May, the comedienne opened up about her distaste for former boyfriend of pop star Rihanna.
“I'm not a fan of Chris Brown's for obvious reasons," she said.
"Hello, he beat up a girl. And he was so unapologetic about it and then continued to do things that were inappropriate -- like throwing chairs or saying homophobic things to nightclub bouncers. He keeps telling people to 'get over it.' How do you get over it? Seriously?"
And what would happen if she ever met the singer in person?: "I'd probably run for the hills," she added in the magazine interview. "He replied to a tweet once. I was proud that after six months of harassing the guy, all my hard work paid off."
Johnson — who began criticizing Brown after he was arrested for assaulting Rihanna in Feb. 2009 — took the first jab: “I know! Being a worthless piece of sh*t can really age a person.”
Brown responded, “Take them teeth out when u Sucking my d**k HOE,” leading Johnson to correct his typo by writing, “It’s ‘HO’ not ‘HOE’ you ignorant f**k.”tweetinga link to a news story detailing Brown’s 2009 altercation with Rihanna.
But eventually Johnson and Brown backed off.
“Okay. I’m done," she wrote.
"All I got from that exchange with Chris Brown is that he wants to sh*t and fa** on me…. I have zero respect for a person who seems unapologetic for the terrible crime he committed and shows no signs of changing."
Before quitting Twitter, Brown added: “To teambreezy… Know that I’m not upset. Just felt like entertaining the ignorance. These bitches crazy.. Further proved my point of how immature society is. #CarpeDiem Catch me in traffic…”
The last time Brown said farewell to social media was in 2009 after he slammed Walmart and other chain retailers for refusing to carry his album Graffiti.
Editors Note: Following Johnson's exclusive interview with this site on Nov. 26, an article was publish in which it appeared to suggest that a quote from the comedienne as told Paper Magazine was told to Celebuzz. The article was altered soon after to further credit that statement to Paper. Johnson boasted to Paper, “He replied to a tweet once. I was proud that after six months of harassing the guy, all my hard work paid off.”
