Chris Brown’s mom Joyce Hawkins incurred the wrath of Michael Jackson fans everywhere when she insinuated her son was the second coming of the King of Pop. Via a post on her Twitter page, the loyal-to-a-fault mom said:
Blank stare. What in the “Dirty Diana?” Anyway, feeling the heat of the instantaneous backlash from MJ’s fans, Hawkins quickly deleted the Tweet and apologized, saying:
“This tweet was a spiritual tweet!! No way was this meant to say Chris would take his place. No one could ever do that.”
She later added:
“I’m sorry I offended anyone. The statement meant Chris would carry on Michael’s legacy. Angels you know what I meant and God know what I meant. I will never stop praising God’s name. This is a beautiful day!! No matter what.”
Despite my feelings about Chris’s past transgressions, as talented as he is, I totally get how he could be looked upon to carry on the legacy of the Gloved One, but if that’s what Hawkins meant, that’s what she should’ve said to begin with. It’s hard to believe someone could be so thick-skulled, that they’re unable to foresee people getting a little upset by the wording of her original Tweet. Breezy, get your mama off of Twitter—she’s going to end up doing you more harm than good.
