On Monday, the country superstar tweeted “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.”
“Gunpowder” is a reference to Lambert’s 2007 hit “Gunpowder and Lead.” The lyrics describe a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband when he gets out of jail. “His fist is big but my gun’s bigger. He’ll find out when I pull the trigger,” the narrator sings.
Lambert isn’t the only celebrity who questioned Brown’s presence on the show, but it was certainly the most outspoken.
“Modern Family” actor Eric Stonestreet posted, “Are Chris Brown’s mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?”
“Looks like all is forgiven (with) Chris Brown,” Sherri Shepherd tweeted. “That’s all I’ll say.”
“Chris Brown … (bites tongue) have we forgiven him?” singer Michelle Branch asked.
Chris pled guilty to assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys. He was sentence to five months probation, six months of community labor, and ordered to stay 50 yards away from Rihanna, though that was reduced to only 10 yards if they attended a music event together.
As of press time, Chris had not responded to Miranda’s tweet. His latest tweets were from Grammy night and were celebratory in nature: “Team breezy we have come along way and I’m so appreciative of you guys!!!! No matter what anyone says…. WE MADE IT!!”
