Elisabeth Hasselbeck Slams Chris Brown Rant as "Verbal Rape", Calls For Lifetime Twitter Ban

by at . Comments

Elisabeth Hasselbeck of The View had some harsh words for Chris Brown's vulgar Twitter rant against Jenny Johnson, likening his comments to "verbal rape."

"I think it's disgusting, first of all," she said. "But also, it seems like verbal rape to me."

"And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself."

Co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg, while acknowledging that Brown's comments were extreme, emphasized that Jenny Johnson was also to blame.

Whoopi disagreed with Hasselbeck's "verbal rape" designation as well.

"I have to say, if you're gonna mess with him [Brown]," Goldberg said of Johnson, who antagonized Chris, "you have to expect to get your head handed to you."

"I sort of feel like... if you feel like that and you don't wanna fight, don't do that, don't do that. And I disagree with verbal rape, I don't think that's verbal rape."

"I think it was assault. Both were verbally assaulting each other, and that is what we need to get rid of on Twitter because it happens too often and too much to too many people."

"It was vile, disgusting and I stand by verbal rape," Elisabeth rebutted, adding that Chris or anyone who Tweets what he did should be banned from Twitter.

Whoopi then continued, re: Johnson, "You wanna bitch at somebody, bitch at them because you don't like what they do. Have enough balls to say what you mean."

Sunday, the Jenny Johnson-Chris Brown feud broke out after she replied to one of the 23-year-old's tweets by calling him a "worthless piece of s--t."

Chris fired back with statements referring to disgusting and sexual acts; he deleted his account soon after. Johnson, meanwhile, has gotten death threats from Team Breezy.

Whose side are you on in this insane beef?


hasselbeck neds to SHUT THE f,,, UP


Hasselbeck overreacted, as usual - calling someone a "ho" is not verbal rape.


People must stop blaming CB, he did nothing wrong. He was provoked, en he has to say something. En i totally agree with Whoopi, if someone slap u in ur face u have to take action too. Leave CB alone.

@ Valerie



Chris could have and should have chosen to ignore her tweet. His failure to do so and then tweet the disgusting things he did prove that her initial assessment was correct. Hopefully Sherry is teaching her young son that, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me". Otherwise she will be raising another Chris.


Don't condone any of the nonsense that normally spews out of Chris Brown's mouth; however, there is something to be said for the fact that he was going on about his life not bothering anyone when this Jenny Johnson woman verbally attacked him. Based on his past history, did she really expect him to play nice? She got what she asked for!


Sherri and Whoopi are both racists what did you expect them to say. That's why all my friends and I don't watch this show anymore.

@ Katz

of course its racist because she takes up for the black guy but if he was any other race its not. your racist for saying it


Oh my lord, I actually agree with Elisabeth Hasselbeck! If that isn't a sign of the apocalypse, then I do not know what would be.
