The comedienne revealed that she has worked with Twitter administrators to look into the hateful tweets directed towards her.
Jenny Johnson underestimated the loyalty of Chris Brown's fans. The comedienne, who got into a Twitter war with the R 'n' B singer and prompted him to quit the social media, has received numerous death threats from his devotees.
"@JennyJohnsonHi5 who the f**k are you? what the f**k did you do with Chris Brown? GIIIIRL, I HOPE YOU KNOW.. I WILL KILL YOU," a Twitter user posted. Another wrote on Monday, November 26, "Super mad right now if I see that Jenny Johnson I'll stab her to death." One person was even harsher, writing "Stfu b***h honestly, I wanna sit on your face and stab 1235 needles in your eyeball, you son of a motherless goat."
Johnson herself seemed to take these threats lightly by bringing attention to them in a tweet. She, however, asked site administrators to look into these hateful tweets. "We are doing a bit of investigating...to see who are writing them and if they should be taken seriously -- or [if they're] just something we need to ignore. We are trying to discover if it's just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else," Johnson told Celebuzz on Tuesday.
Since the Twitter feud exploded, Brown has been under scrutiny from fellow celebrities. "I think it's disgusting, first of all. But also, it seems like verbal rape to me. And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself," Elisabeth Hasselbeck said on "The View". Her co-host Whoopi Goldberg disagreed, saying "I have to say if you're gonna mess with him [Chris], you have to expect to get your head handed to you."
Meanwhile, Chelsea Handler decided to make a joke on Brown's explicit tweet to Johnson about retina. "He's not very good with anatomy, the retina is way back there and hard to get to," Handler quipped. "You might want to start with the iris, moron."
