Chris Brown Needs To Delete His Twitter If He Wants To Keep His Sanity
Some people just don’t need an unfiltered voice courtesy of Twitter. Chris Brown is one of those people. The 22-year-old has been under the microscope ever since the Rihanna fiasco and just can’t seem to keep his foot out of his mouth. When upset, he has outbursts like South Park‘s beloved Cartman. Except, this isn’t a cartoon and those curse laden tweets (remember his “d*ck in the booty ass lil boy” tweet to Raz B?) aren’t going to be laughed at by everyone. He’s been engaged in numerous beefs and gets even more pissed off when the blogs and media outlets run news items on him.
“Latching on to my every word and criticizing makes you look thirsty,” Brown tweeted yesterday. “I can’t even piss without somebody complaining. Imagine how I feel.”
Although most can empathize with the notion that he can’t seem to do anything without a glut of media hounding him, the other side of the coin is that this is what comes with the territory. Chris Brown made this bed for himself after the Rihanna incident and he has to learn to watch what he says and tweets as it will be scrutinized 10x more than it would have before. So it doesn’t help when he engages in a war of words with the OFWGKTA crew and actually has Tyler The Creator back down.
“Sh*t Got Too Real On Both Ends,” Tyler tweeted to Brown. “I’m Over It. We’re All Over This Sh*t. Its Stupid As F*ck. Swag It Out.”
But this isn’t the first, nor will it be the last time that Chris Brown finds himself scrutinized by the watchful eye of the media. He is trying to use Twitter to showcase who he really is, but his image takes a blow every single time he utters a curse word or says something that can be deemed as “homophobic.”
So what’s the best course of action for Chris Brown? Delete the damn Twitter. He doesn’t really need it. Although it’s cool to be able to connect with fans, he needs to be more selective in some of the things he says. Since he can’t and no PR team can put a muzzle on him, he needs to go ahead and shut the Twitter page down. It’s best for his sanity. The longer he keeps it open, the angrier he will get when everyone takes his words out of context (or at face value) and tear him a new one. At this rate, he’ll lose his mind before he reaches 23.
Nobody wants to see him on Celebrity Rehab in 10 years, do we?
