Chris Brown and His History of Twitter Tantrums

For an anger management grad, Chris Brown exhibits shockingly poor impulse control. In the three years since he attacked his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in a rented Lamborghini on the eve of the Grammy Awards, he's spent more time whining about his persecution than he has making amends.

On Tuesday, apparently unable to deal with the criticism volleyed his way after the 2012 Grammy Awards, the controversial R&B singer spewed arrogant indignation all over Twitter:
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 and imitate everything they do. Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and

Learnt from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys who to hate!!! But guess what???

HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF.
The idiocy was quickly deleted and replaced by the hilarious "I'm so OVER everyone's opinions.. Really!!!" (also deleted).

It wasn't the first time Chris blew his cool online. There's a reason why Chris only has 26 tweets on his Twitter feed. In November, he deleted everything he'd ever posted, save a pair of innocuous tweets—one about so-called "haters," i.e. anyone who dares look at him with a critical eye. But nothing is ever really wiped from the Internet.

December 2009: Walmart Haters
One of Brown's first Twitter meltdowns occurred after he visited a Connecticut Walmart store and couldn't find his album Graffiti. Erroneously convinced he'd been blacklisted, Brown ranted, "im tired of this s--t. major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. what the f--k do i gotta do."

Brown continued, "yeah i said it and i aint retracting s--t. im not biting my tongue about s else..." before musing, "the industry can kiss my a--."

He did retract his statement—sort of. He quit Twitter. But not for long.

December 2010: Raz-B Hater
B2K's Raz-B probably didn't realize Chris Brown would take his bait when he tweeted, "Im just sittin here Thinking how can n****s like @ebenet & @ChrisBrown disrespect women as intelligent as @HalleBerry11 @Rihanna."

Chris Brown being Chris Brown, a fairly innocuous tweet led to a full-on Twitter war filled with homophobic slurs.
@razb2k n***a you want attention! Grow up n***a!!! D**k in da booty a** lil boy

Tell me this @razb2k!! Why when the money was coming in u won't complaining about getting butplugged! #homothug!!!

I ain't deleting my tweet either!! I was minding my damn business and Peter pan decides to pop off!!! # whatalame

I'm not mad though!!!! I'm just not silent nor am i one of these scary R&B cats!!

I'm not homophobic! He's just disrespectful!!!
And once again: Brown tweets that he won't delete. He deletes.

June 2011: Frank Ocean Hater
Chris Brown probably thought he was complimenting Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean when he tweeted, "I f--- with Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum."

Frank didn't take the compliment, responding, "[I] f---s wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner.” He followed, ""i just dont like underhanded comments. thats all im saying."

Brown predictably flew off the handle:
it was a compliment you bitch ass n---a. Everybody claim to be the devil till they meet him.

F--k odd future! Make sure y'all smalltime n----s stick yo chess out when u speak to me,

Ain't no battery in my back! U just getting on a-- n----s! Don't let them pills go to yo head!

I was tryna help yo sales n---a. You f----n clown! You and would be casted great for planet of the apes!"

The world is crazy. These n---as talk s--t, worship the devil and start s--t wit me and I'm the bad guy? F--king hilarious

Y'all wanna know why I'm always in some shit? Becuz people continuously f--k wit you.
November 2011: Rihanna-lusting Haters

The spasm that led Chris to delete nearly all of his tweets was pretty epic.  It's unclear what set him off, but once he was off, he was way off, misspellings and all.

"Don't say s--- to anybody and everyone feels its cool to attack me. GROWN ADULTS!!!! That s--- happened three years ago. TWITTER GETS WACK REAL FAST! I LOVE ALL THE POEPLE WHO SUPPORT MY MUSIC! i never said i was a LEGEND. people please grow up. Ive never dealt with so much negativity in my life! its to the point now that its just ridiculous! IM NOT A POLITICIAN! MY MUSIC DOESNT PROMOTE VIOLENCE nor will it ever! only thing it will increase is the pregnacy rate!"

Brown also put forth some marvelous logic about why people dislike him: They want into Rihanna's pants. "I know a lot of you wack a-s (OLD) celebrities probably wanna f--- my ex, but talking s--- on me wont get you far! and to be REALLY HONEST, ya'll wonder why n-a spazzes all the time?"

There are a number of things we wonder about Chris Brown, among them when he'll grow up and get over himself.
