Jenny Johnson on Chris Brown: 'I Won't Say I Regret What I Did'


Comedian Jenny Johnson, who initiated a shitstorm by replying to a Chris Brown tweet, has penned an essay for She begins: “This is not an apology. I just want to clear some things up.”

Johnson goes on to explain:

I didn’t want attention from all of this. If I wanted attention, I would have accepted all of the invitations to be on shows and to actually give exclusive interviews, but I declined all of them. I didn’t think the thousands of (misspelled) death threats I got would have people thinking I saw myself as a victim, because I am NOT a victim of anything, nor have I ever thought I was (excluding the time I paid to see The Village). I’ve had people assume I dislike Chris Brown because I’m taking up for Rihanna, I’m not. I’m on the side of good, of equality and respect for my fellow woman. I was raised to not respect a person who doesn’t respect others. And one human being physically harming another human being is one of the most disrespectful acts there is. I have never been a victim of domestic abuse, nor was I raised in a house where there was abuse. I do however, know people who have been victims of abuse by a so-called “loved one” and I’ve seen the long term damage it does.

She also writes: “I won’t say I regret what I did, but I will say I have learned from it.” More at the link.
