John Legend Defends His Lady + Awarded Honorary Doctorate from Howard University
John Legend is defending his lady love Chrissy Teigen, after she was bombarded with threats from multiple fans of Chris Brown after the Sports Illustrated Model criticized his performance at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
During the award show on sunday night, Chrissy tweeted, ”Why sing when you can dance?” and ”Live singing is a helluva thing,” right after Chris Brown’s performance.
Those tweets caused Chris Brown’s fans aka TeamBreezy to unleashed their rabid venom.
After the model retweeted some of the hateful messages and posted a statement about the situation, her fiancé John took to twitter defending her tweets saying “All critics aren’t “haters”
“Personally, I don’t think @chrissyteigen‘s existence is pointless. Nor anyone else who dares criticize a performance. Every artist has to be ok with the fact that some people won’t like their work. All critics aren’t “haters” John wrote. “And don’t ever tell me to put my “bitch on a leash. She’s a grown woman with her own mind and her own opinions and this is not 1950.” He added.
Chris Brown responded to the firestorm by tweeting,“Team Breezy! Lets stop sending death threats! I know y’all bout that life but it’s the wrong message! Ur turning haters into victims!“ He added,“And that only furthers their pointless existence!”
