Over the last few hours, a snapshot of a tweet apparently written by Chris Brown about Cher has been in wide circulation. The tweet read, "that damn GRANNY b**ch CHER needs to keep her mouth SHUTTTT about her opinion against obama !!! smh she needs a beating !"
Whilst many people have believed the obviously-questionable tweet to be genuine - concluding that popular R&B singer Brown has since deleted the tweet (something he does a lot I'm led to believe) - others have debunked the anti-Cher statement.
Website 'celebritytweet.com' features all tweets made by the most notable celebrities, even if they have since been deleted on their actual Twitter accounts. Chris Brown's page on the site has no evidence of this tweet - which was said to have been typed on 2 June 2012 at 1:35 PM in the snapshot.
Unfortuneately, one fan tweeted the news of the tweet to Cher - who was on Twitter hours ago - before questioning the fake snapshot. They said, "How do you feel about Chris Brown saying he was gonna hit you?" Cher replied - seemingly having knowledge of his previous 2008 domestic violence case against then-girlfriend Rihanna at the front of her mind though it may be coincidental - "I don't know? Is that something he's particularly good at?"
Even without evidence of the tweet being fake, one has to know that Chris Brown would have to be ridiculously stupid to tweet such content considering his past - I believe for now, he wants to hold on to his career.
