Chris Brown Forgiven?

Chris Brown made a triumphant return to the Grammys last night -- but not everyone is happy about it. Read on to find out who's throwing haterade at Breezy.

Chris Brown 2012 Grammys

Are you disgusted by the way Chris Brown was welcomed back into the Grammy fold like he never beat the crap out of Rihanna? You're not alone. Celebrities and regular people just like us expressed their disbelief that just over three years to the day that the singer beat the crap out of Rihanna, he was not only asked to perform at the awards but won for Best R&B Album.

Grammy presenter Miranda Lambert was particularly incensed. "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl," she wrote on Twitter Monday. "Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to 'Gunpowder' and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys."

The country superstar was referring to her hit single "Gunpowder and Lead," in which the lyrics describe a woman's plans to murder her abusive husband when he is released from jail.

Modern Family actor Eric Stonestreet tweeted, "Are Chris Brown's mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?"

"Chris Brown… (bites tongue) have we forgiven him?" singer Michelle Branch asked.

Music fans were just as upset that Brown received the accolades he did.

"Remember when Adam Lambert kissed a man on TV and was blacklisted?" wrote Twitter user @aurosan. "Remember when Chris Brown beat Rihanna and won a Grammy?"

Brown would not have been able to perform if Rihanna had not asked for the restrictions on his restraining order be mostly lifted, but she seemed to have her own message for her ex-boyfriend Sunday night.

New Rihanna video reenacts Chris Brown beating >>

Taking the stage after Brown's awkwardly lip-synced dance routine, Rihanna let loose a pointed performance of her single "We Found Love," the video to which is an obvious reenactment of her violent relationship with Brown -- including specific references to the beating.

But Brown's feeling was screw the haters. He posted on Twitter after his win, "Team breezy we have come along way and I'm so appreciative of you guys!!!! No matter what anyone says… WE MADE IT!!"

Tell us: Should we pretend Chris Brown didn't beat Rihanna?

Cris Brown got a bad rap for his temper and what he did to Rhiana...however, he didn't get blacklisted. Bad Boys don't get blacklisted. What Adam did was disrespectful to the network (especially when he gave the finger at the end.) That is the difference between the two men. Chris lost his temper - Adam was disrespectful to the network. Network being the key word here. Adam over rated his popularity too early on and trashed his career from what it should have been. It's very hard to pull out of that situation, as it is actually written in stone. He would have to raise his performance level way above what it is as of today...6/10-/2012. Pop techno is so beneath him. Yes, his special circle of cult followers will say otherwise...but, he will need more than that applauding him. I personally, want to see him break through the blacklisting. Hopefully, one day he will sing what the masses want to hear and the networks will bow to him and bring him back into the fold. It could happen if he plays his cards right.

Totally and completely disgusted. What's worse, this little worm feels vindicated now - like he didn't do anything wrong in the first place. I take comfort in knowing he is such a piece of sh*t that it's just a matter of time before he screws up again and this time he might even go to jail!

As a woman quite frankly I'm tired of hearing about this. It's been three years and we're STILL talking about this? No one should be making comments especially anyone in Hollywood, where everyone is a drunk, drug user, liar, thief, cheater, beater and such. Unless you're perfect then go ahead and judge all you want, but seeing how we all have skeletons in our closet, some worse than others, we all need to keep quiet. So on that note please STFU and STFD. Thank you.

It is disgusting that Brown should be given accolades of any sort when he is a violent abuser. There should have been a warning before he appeared on the television show to remind any of his supporters of what he has done. Something like: "This appearance does not in any way condone Chris Brown's violent abusive behavior toward women." WARNING: This man beat the ---- out of a woman.
