“He beat a girl…not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. I didn’t feel right about not saying something. The loudmouth that I am, I say what I think. I wanted everyone to know that I don’t agree with the message it’s sending to young women. It’s not okay. At all. To be celebrated after doing something like that. I don’t think it’s right, I never will, and I will stand by what I said till the day I die.”
Just in case you forgot, Miranda is talking about that time that she tweeted about how weird it was that Chris performed twice at the Grammys last year, and about how she’ll keep saying it as long as she needs to, because it just. Makes. Sense.
Does anyone else love this woman? Because I think I do.

Oh, wait – that headline should read ‘Everyone slams Chris Brown for performing at the Grammys’. Because practically an entire troop’s worth of celebrities did as well. Here are two of Miranda’s original Tweets:
But as I said, she wasn’t the only one who thought that Chris would have been better off sucking a giant d-ck in prison rather than performing (um, twice) at this year’s Grammys. From E! Online:
Nestled among the incredulous was Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet.
“Are Chris brown’s mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?” he asked.
Fellow small-screen big name Sherri Shepherd also offered up her point of view: “Looks like all is forgiven w Chris Brown. That’s all I’ll say.”
But other stars were just getting started.
“Chris brown…people don’t forget! #chrisbrownbeatswomen” Jack Osbourne tweeted out. “If Chris Brown had worn a wife beater, the irony would eclipse the whole show #chrisbrownbeatswomen.”
Michelle Branch also added to the pileup of disbelief, tweeting, “Trying not to go off on a rant but…Chris Brown…*bites tongue* have we forgiven him? #Grammys.”
Seemingly answering that very question, at least for himself, was Ethan Suplee. “Why wasn’t Chris Brown fired from ‘music’ (public dancing) when he beat up that girl?…Dear ‘thugs’ and ‘gangstas’ of the hip-hop industry, how is it that none of you ‘handled’ Chris Brown? #thuglife #prisonrules #getsome.”
Of course, sometimes the best response is the simplest, which was supplied in this case by Wil Wheaton.
“Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rihanna should read the police report on exactly what he did.”
Right? And I agree. Whatever business the Academy thought they had pulling Chris Brown into the mix – oh … wait. Ratings. Right. – goes far beyond my realm of understanding, but that didn’t stop him from doing his normal “Ima flip shit all over you grimy motherfu-kers” and run his foul-ass mouth. Nope. This is how Chris has been responding to the thrashing that his fellow celebrities have been giving him since this past weekend:
HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F-CK OFF
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 them and imitate everything they do.
Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???
Which, of course, have – surprise, surprise! – all been pulled from his Twitter account – probably by his agent or publicist or zen adviser or whatever the f-ck he’s got going on these days. Definitely not him, though, because he’s just too stupid to realize that there’s a time and a place to run your mouth – unless you’re Chris Brown, and then you’ve got no time and no place to do it as long as you live. He sure sounds rehabilitated, doesn’t he.
