The 23-year-old singer of "Forever" and "Turn Up the Music" unleashed a series of angry tweets at comedian Jenny Johnson (who's not particularly enamored with Chris Brown) in a public feud that prompted Breezy to delete his Twitter account for the second time.

The Twitter spat, helpfully collected by Buzzfeed before Brown deleted his account, began when Johnson had a crack at one of Brown's tweets:

Brown followed up with several vulgar reactions to Johnson including: "Let me leave this bitch alone...It's good to know my worth by listening to a bitch that is worthless! #iwin #bushpigswag" and "mom says hello...She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to s*** right on the retina, ....#pinkeye."

Johnson took it all in stride at first:

Before giving up with a final message to Brown:

Brown issued a series of resigned messages to his fans before deleting his account on Sunday night (captured in the image below). According to Hypervocal, one of Brown's last tweets, "Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????" garnered nearly 16,000 retweets in half an hour.

Johnson wrote about her disdain for Brown in a 2011 article for Grantland, in which she lambasted the young singer for his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

This f***ing guy. I remember a time when Chris Brown was this fresh-faced young man, dating pop star Rihanna, dancing with Mike Myers during the opening of the MTV awards and we all enjoyed him. Then BOOM! Word gets out he was arrested for domestic violence. Was it a misunderstanding? Could this be? Oh … it be. Chris Brown beat the s*** out of Rihanna, resulting in multiple cuts and bruises, a busted lip, and facial swelling. Who is this guy? He is clearly not the boy next door, he's not a wholesome young man, he's actually a violent criminal. As time passes by, we see the real Chris Brown — a guy full of rage and prone to violent outbursts.

She also directly addressed her frequent references to Brown on Twitter, and the subsequent reactions of his devoted fans:

If I take a verbal shot at Chris Brown via my Twitter page, I know the rest of the day will be filled with Team Breezy @ replies. I have had some real winners reply to me. One evening in particular, Chris Brown himself even replied to me. That was fun.

Brown appears to have spent at least part of Thanksgiving weekend with Rihanna, who tweeted out a picture of him on a bed Saturday night.
