Chris Brown may have blown his reputation, again. The hip-hop performer posted an offensive Tweet that included the F word after winning a Grammy award. The Tweet was deleted, but Mashable captured a screenshot. Brown gloated over his new Grammy Award for Best R&B Album.

Brown also performed at the Grammys -- twice. The selection of Brown as a performer was met with disapproval from some because of his past -- the singer assaulted ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 on the weekend of that year’s Grammys. Artisan News reports...

“...Chris Brown had a big night in front of a nationally televised audience...”

“...setting off a firestorm of critics, pondering whether it was appropriate for Brown to perform at all.”

Some fellow celebrities even Tweeted anti-Brown messages. Country singer Miranda Lambert said

“... Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl...”

But the Grammys seem to be defending the choice to have Brown perform. According to the International Business Times, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow said...

“... If we’re going to get in trying to personally evaluate artists in terms of their personal lives, that’s a slippery slope that we wouldn’t want to get into.”

Brown seems to take the same stance. According to MTV, the singer also Tweeted …

"‘Strange how we pick and choose who to hate! … Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do.’”

But again, those reported Tweets have been deleted. Radar Online quotes a source close to Brown …

“Brown didn’t Tweet that, someone does his postings to Twitter and when he saw that he ordered it taken down immediately.”

But some aren’t buying that explanation. Idolator writes

“That would be easier to believe if posting profanity-ridden rants and then swiftly deleting them wasn’t typical behaviour for @chrisbrown.”

And The Huffington Post asks if Brown has gone too far with these latest Tweets, noting that “RIP Chris Brown” is now a trending topic on Twitter -- and says he hasn’t learned from his mistakes.

“Brown may have effectively shot himself in the foot … Brown continues to prove he's an immature and impulsive person -- perhaps dangerously impulsive, at times.”
