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.
