Women on the US show The View often address current issues and hit big topics on air, so it was no surprise that Chris Brown’s ‘misogynistic’ Twitter feud with a female comedienne was at the top of the list to be discussed.
So after discussing whatever it is or isn’t doing with Rihanna after breaking up with his pretty model girlfriend Karrueche Tran after two years, the co-hosts began to talk about Brown’s vulgar Twitter feud that occurred yesterday with comedy writer Jenny Johnson.
"I think it's disgusting, first of all," Elisabeth Hasselbeck 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."
But it looks like Hasselbeck, along with Sherri Shepherd, may not be the voice of many women’s opinions on the controversial singer as they both clarified that although Brown’s response was extreme, Johnson was also to blame in the spat.
Actress Whoopi Goldberg also shared that sentiment without agreeing that the 23-year-old rapper’s remarks should be classified as ‘verbal rape.’
"I have to say, if you're gonna mess with him [Brown]," Goldberg said, "you have to expect to get your head handed to you.’’

''Now, 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,'' she added.
''I just think both 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,’’ Whoopi continued.
But Hasselbeck intervened, claiming: "It was vile, disgusting and I stand by verbal rape.’’
Brown seems to have a skill of causing controversy and arguments even when he isn’t around, with Whoopi biting back with: "You wanna bitch at somebody, bitch at them because you don't like what they do. Have enough balls to say what you mean."
Brown deleted his Twitter account yesterday after he was engaged in a Twitter feud with Johnson, with her calling him a ''worthless piece of s**t.''
Chris then retaliated with misogynistic insults referring to the writer performing sexual acts on him, but later decided to leave the social networking site after having enough.
