Chris Brown—who really needs to learn to step away from the Twitter—lashed out at his critics in a rant on the social networking site that was predictably and quickly deleted. Brown, apparently upset with all the controversy over his Grammys appearance, tweeted a series of messages yesterday that culminated in this classiness: "HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate f--- OFF!"

The tirade was removed within a few minutes, but Mashable has a screen shot of the final tweet. Other tweets apparently included Brown's theory that "we select who to hate," and a comparison of his conviction for beating Rihanna to other rappers who sell drugs but still retain their fans. Mashable notes that many on Twitter were upset with Brown's Grammys performance—but, of course, there were also those who were decidedly not. BuzzFeed has a truly disturbing list of 25 people who declared publicly that Brown could beat them if he wanted to. (More Chris Brown stories.)
