Jenny Johnson, The Comedian Responsible for Chris Brown Deleting His Twitter Responds to Criticism

 

Chris Brown and comedian Jenny Johnson went back and forth in a nasty twitter exchange a few days ago which resulted in Chris deleting his Twitter account. Now, Jenny issues a formal statement explaining her actions via GQ.

This is not an apology. I just want to clear some things up. My first thought following my Twitter exchange with Chris Brown on Sunday was to ignore it until it went away. The exchange I’m referencing would be the one where he tweeted he looked old for 23, and I replied with a not-so-kind comment. From there we discussed fartsspelling, past events, bushpigs, and the part of my eye which he wanted to go number two on. It ended with him deactivating his Twitter account.

I assumed a couple of days would pass and other things would happen and our little spat would be yesterday’s news. Halle Berry’s baby daddy and current fiancee get in a fistfight, Lindsay Lohan gets arrested, and Kate Middleton gets bangs: perfect. But it’s still kind of there. I didn’t expect my name to be in entertainment news, but it is, and it is because I started it.

I won’t say I regret what I did, but I will say I have learned from it. I chose to turn a lazy Sunday watching football with my husband into a total shitstorm. 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). I didn’t think I would be invited to be a guest on their show or any other TV or radio program. I didn’t think Celebuzz would post an “exclusive interview” that I never gave. What they did was post bits and pieces from previous print and podcast interviews I did a year ago, made other shit up and called it an “exclusive interview”.

I didn’t want attention from all of this. If I wanted attention, I would have accepted all of the invitations to be on shows and to actually give exclusive interviews, but I declined all of them. I didn’t think the thousands of (misspelled) death threats I got would have people thinking I saw myself as a victim, because I am NOT a victim of anything, nor have I ever thought I was (excluding the time I paid to see The Village). 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.

That said, my Twitter account is meant to be funny. While there are truths behind a lot of the things I write, in no way, shape or form are they meant to be seen as anything other than the words of a comedy writer, in 140 characters or less. I started it on Sunday and it was certainly not my finest hour, but here we are. By next week Miley Cyrus will marry a shoe, Justin Bieber will meet the Pope wearing a wetsuit, Kim Kardashian will announce she’s pregnant with a sea turtle, and everyone will move on. Even though I promised myself I would remain quiet on this subject, I just felt the need to clear the air on these certain topics.

Don’t worry Team Breezy, your hero is still on Instagram under the handle FuckYoPictures. #Classy

    In other words ,”I’ve been bullying and harrassing Chris Brown for over a year in an ultimate showing of hypocrisy. I was thoughtless and relentless and I hide behind the excuse that I’m a comedy writer. I won’t ever own up to my childish behavior and I haven’t even attempted to do anything about the topic of domestic abuse that supposedly affects me so deeply that I stalk a celebrity that has pled guilty, paid for his crime, and been forgiven by his victim.”

      PRRRRRREACH! My sentiments to a “T”! So she’s basically been taught to be disrespectful to people who are disrespectful? An eye for an eye? She claims she’s sticking up for her “fellow woman”, but last I checked, Rihanna doesn’t need ANYONE to speak up for her! Regardless of gender, we are all people. He has paid his debt to society, a debt in which really isn’t even society’s to determine, but I digress. Jenny Johnson is full of shit. A hypocrite in the most unadulterated form.

    Rihanna was NOT abused (wasn’t an ongoing series of incidents). She was violated. It was ONE incident in which Chris Brown made a tragic mistake. He copped to it, did his time. LET IT GO ALL-DAMN-READY!

      Chris Brown didn’t do his time. If Chris Brown got what he deserved, he’d have been castrated with a rusty spoon, raped by dolphins, and left for dead in the desert. If you have ANY sort of respect for him, you’re scum.

    You guys are idiots. Chris brown is a good looking, talented, asshole. He is a bad person! Who gives a fuck if he said he was sorry. What else did you expect him to say “that bitch had it coming?!”. In my whole life I have never kicked the shit out of my girl friend. One time? NEVER! Douche bags. Your all fucking retarded. This chick is awesome.

    • Amy

      Yeah, because when you’re abusive towards an abuser then you’re awesome and not a hypocrite!
