Chris Brown, Jenny Johnson Twitter Feud: Comedienne Admits Comments ‘Certainly Not Her Finest Hour’
In a blog for GQ, posted on Friday afternoon, the former local television journalist maintained she does not regret the exchange which led to a series of death threats, as Celebuzz previously reported.
“I won’t say I regret what I did, but I will say I have learned from it,” the 33-year-old wrote.
“I chose to turn a lazy Sunday watching football with my husband into a total sh*tstorm. I never thought I’d see the chicks on The View attempt to break down our interaction on Twitter (if they only knew how little thought and effort go into anything I tweet, there is literally nothing to break down).”
Johnson added: “I didn’t want attention from all of this.”
It was this comment that forced Brown, 23, to delete his Twitter account. Responding to his tweet that he looked “old as f*ck,” Johnson retored: “I know! Being a worthless piece of sh*t can really age a person.”
Brown, who has 11.6 million followers on Twitter, unleashed sexual and graphic insults toward Johnson, in response.
“I’ve had people assume I dislike Chris Brown because I’m taking up for Rihanna, I’m not. I’m on the side of good, of equality and respect for my fellow woman. I was raised to not respect a person who doesn’t respect others. And one human being physically harming another human being is one of the most disrespectful acts there is. I have never been a victim of domestic abuse, nor was I raised in a house where there was abuse. I do however, know people who have been victims of abuse by a so-called “loved one” and I’ve seen the long term damage it does.”
interview she granted to this site, on Wednesday.
Indeed, the comedienne’s Hollywood, Calif. based agent Christie Smith, from the Mosaic Media Group, has even attempted to make the absurd suggestion that Johnson never spoke to a Celebuzz reporter.
But in a telephone conversation on Friday afternoon, after her blog published, Johnson admitted that she did indeed speak to Celebuzz on Tuesday afternoon, despite claiming in her blog that we posted an “exclusive interview that I never gave.”
“Yes I did speak to your reporter,” Johnson conceded, when pressed about the mistruth she published.
In that conversation, Johnson detailed what her team was doing to locate the origin of the threats: “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. We are trying to discover if it’s just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else.”
Johnson, however, has taken umbrage that Celebuzz — and countless other sites — published an earlier interview she granted Paper magazine, in which she boasted about the affect of her relentless trashing of Brown.
Johnson declared she “was proud that after six months of harassing the guy, all my hard work paid off.”
She continued on her campaign of hate against Brown in Paper, saying:
I’m not a fan of Chris Brown’s for obvious reasons. 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?
So we have got to ask our readers: Whose side are you on? Team Breazy or Johnson? Let us know in the comments below.
