This story is difficult to unravel, so bear with me. An image has been making the rounds online that appears to be a message posted on R&B star and former Rihanna assaulter Chris Brown’s official Twitter account. The tweet includes the following message, aimed at Cher:
that damn GRANNY bitch CHER needs to keep her mouth SHUTTT about her opinion against obama !!! smh she needs a beating !
A screencap of the alleged tweet is below:
Obviously, Brown has a history of domestic violence. He’s also been known to have a very short temper and to occasionally post messages on his Twitter feed that he regrets and later deletes.
Though some are saying that Brown posted the tweet and then quickly deleted it, Brown himself is claiming that it’s the work of an imposter. Though @chrisbrown is his official Twitter handle, the screencap above could be a Photoshop job.
Brown quickly reached out to Cher on Twitter, saying “@cher if this is your real twitter I would like to say that some of ur fans like @cherarmy1 are spreading false accusations.”
He followed up, “I have the utmost respect for u as an artist! @cher. Just to clear this up.”
