Miranda Lambert and Chris Brown's Twitter battle continues

02/16/2012 by Olivia Allin

Miranda Lambert believes that Chris Brown shouldn't have been asked to return to the Grammy Awards, three years after assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna after a pre-Grammy party in 2009.

The country singer, who is married to "The Voice" co-host Blake Shelton, took to Twitter to voice her disproval, writing, "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl."

"Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys," she continued.

"Gunpowder and Lead" is the title of one of Lambert's songs about a woman preparing to confront her abusive husband when he gets out of jail.

Several other celebrities voiced their distaste for Brown's return, including Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Wil Wheaton. Several media outlets also criticized the comeback.

Meanwhile, Brown's female fans voiced their support in numerous disturbing Tweets, writing things like "I would let Chris Brown beat me up anytime."

Brown responded to the negative comments writing, "HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate [expletive] OFF!" The Tweet has since been deleted according to CBS News, as was his follow-up Tweet which read, "I'M BACK SO WATCH MY BaCK as I walk away from all this negativity #teambreezygrammy."

Lambert responded after a slew of "Team Breezy" fans lashed out, "Oh and one more thing for all who are asking....I have a Grammy too."

Brown, who's currently serving five years of probation for the attack, performed at Sunday's event at Staples Center in Los Angeles and took home the Grammy for Best R&B Album for "F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies)," which was nominated for three Grammy Awards in total.

The R&B singer went on to thank fans on Wednesday writing (and not deleting), "TeamBreezy, the Grammy I received was for those of you who supported my music and the hard work and growth in my life. I thank you! Love U!"

Lambert won a Grammy Award in 2011 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her single, "The House That Built Me."

She continued to stand up for herself against the wrath of Brown's fans, writing, "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything."
