John Legend's girlfriend, model Chrissy Teigen, received a tidal wave of hate from Chris Brown fans after she 'dared' to tweet a critical comment about the R&B singer during the Billboard Awards. Brown gave a performance at the show and Tiegen tweeted a disparaging comment about Brown lip-syncing.
That was all it took for "Team Breezy" to go in on the beauty.
"I’ve had comments ranging from 'kill yourself you stupid HO' to 'gold digging c**t,' 'get a f-cking job,' etc. because I don’t like him?" she tweeted. "Seriously. this isn’t your f-cking job. You guys are too young for this sh-t. too f-cking young. stop being psychotic. be strong women. listen to opinions without spewing pure maliciousness…John [Legend] has gotten numerous comments about him needed to 'leash' me or 'control' me. FROM WOMEN. please stop this. What are you even doing this for? some good music and dancing? good god. DO BETTER."
"Personally, I don’t think @chrissyteigen’s existence is pointless. Nor anyone else who dares criticize a performance," Legend said in defense of his girl. "Every artist has to be ok with the fact that some people won’t like their work. All critics aren’t 'haters.'"
"And don’t ever tell me to put my 'b-tch on a leash,'" he added. "She’s a grown woman with her own mind and her own opinions and this is not 1950."
