Chris Brown's Mom Apologizes for Michael Jackson Comment

Writing 'Michael Jackson died so that Chris Brown could live!' on Twitter had put Joyce Hawkins in the hot water for the misinterpretation.

Chris Brown's manager mother has issued a public apology to outraged fans of his musical hero Michael Jackson, for tweeting an insensitive comment about the King of Pop's death.

Brown has often credited Jackson as an influence, and suffered a breakdown while performing his hit "Man in the Mirror" at the BET Awards in June. But the singer's mum Joyce Hawkins sparked a storm of criticism on Wednesday, September 8, when she logged on to Twitter.com, and wrote, "Michael Jackson died so that Chris Brown could live!!!"

The comment has since been taken down, but not before Hawkins was inundated with a flurry of angry online messages. The outrage prompted Hawkins to release a statement to USA Today on Thursday to clarify her message: "I'm so sorry that the tweet I sent yesterday was misunderstood. What I meant to say is that Chris has always been inspired by Michael Jackson's music and his career."

She later logged on to Twitter, issuing an apology to her followers: "I'm sorry I offended anyone. The statement meant Chris would carry on Michaels (sic) legacy."

I TOO THINK SHE SAID EXACTLY WHAT SHE HAD ON HER MIND. THE BIGGEST AND THE BEST WAS NO LONGER AN OBSTICAL FOR HER SON TO OVER COME ON HIS WAY TO THE TOP. TO ME THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD WANT TO BE REMEMBERED AS HAVING SAID THAT ABOUT ANYBODY MUCH LESS MICHAEL JACKSON. IF SOMEONE DYING IS THE ONLY WAY I COULD BE CONSIDERED NUMBER 1 I WOULDN'T WANT TO BE BECAUSE I REALLY WOULDN'T BE THE BEST THERE HAS EVER BEEN.

What a stupid thing to say, she meant exactly what she said and then to say "oh I meant that Chris is inspired by Michael" yeah right fuck off, Chris will never have the career he would have if he didn't beat up a woman a tribute to MJ is not going to make everything the way it was, it will NEVER be the way it was!!
