On Twitter, McKnight exposed what he thought is acceptable in the society these days, including 'beat the s**t outta my girl'.
There's a Twitter war going on between singer Brian McKnight and Chris Brown which was initiated by the former. McKnight took shots of Brown, R. Kelly and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in his Twitter on Saturday, June 2, criticizing their behaviors.
McKnight tweeted, "Since everyone's so opinionated I'm taking suggestions on what I should do next I'm thinking rent a lambo and beat the s**t outta my girl... That's acceptable these days." This refers to Brown's infamous case of beating ex-girlfriend Rihanna and almost chocking her to death.
McKnight continued with Kelly jab, writing "Or maybe have sex with a 14 year old girl and film it that's acceptable these days." And then he took a jab at Mayweather Jr. who was allowed to take prizefight money before going to jail. He tweeted, "Or let the court system let me make 35 million before I do my 87 days in a private cell for domestic abuse thatís acceptable these days."
Although McKnight said his intention was to remind "all of us what we accept on a daily basis", Brown did not sit well with McKnight's comments. "I see how this works now. When peoples careers get to the 'nobody cares' stage they use my name for publicity! Lol," Brown tweeted, adding "I can't keep helping these old n**gas. Its miracle the way I'm bringing the dead alive!" He continued, "I would've gladly wrote you something that would make u look less irrelevant!"
McKnight has not responded to Brown's tweets.
