The homie Brandy, a frequent target of Internet haters, is pleading with the bloggers to have more respect for her feelings – particularly when commenting about her 2006 car accident that led to the death of motorist Awatef Aboudihaj. This is what she said:

“Sometimes we don’t read the comments because of what we’ve seen people say in the past about us,” Brandy wrote on her blog. “Okay, you don’t like my shoes, you don’t like my outfit, cool, but the rest of it, like bringing up the car accident?”

Brandy, currently starring in VH1’s “Brandy & Ray J: Family Business,” escaped criminal charges but was sued by the deceased woman’s family. She settled with them in November, but insists she’s still struggling to put the incident behind her.

“People just go too far. way too far,” Brandy said of bloggers. “But people are going to be who they are. As long as I’m not like that, and even if I wasn’t me and I was tweeting about another celebrity, I would never say anything bad about somebody like that. I’m glad that I’m that type of a person… I just think people should have respect. We have feelings.”

Brandy is asking people to consider that performers are “sensitive” and often hurt by vicious tweets and blog postings about their activities.

“It’s real. It affects us. Trust me. It really does,” she wrote. :We’re people at the end of the day with feelings. You know we’re sensitive because we’re artists. You know that stuff is going to hurt sometimes.”

  1. ummm, okay. What about the family that has to live without there mother and wife, what about there feelings? My whole thing with this situation is that she wasn’t under the influence of ANYTHING (which is bad in itself), traffic was at a complete STOP and yet she slams in the back of this woman and now she is dead and you want us to consider your feelings, hmmmm. Something that was never said about “accident” is why did it even occur to you to stop or slow down when like I said, traffic was at a complete stop. So, what where you doing Brandy that you DIDN’T see in front of you all the tale lights? Where you on the cell phone, texting, fixing your wig, what??? Ask us to respect your feelings, what about the family that you paid off so your ass wouldn’t go to jail for murder? Everyday they have to wake up with no wife or mother so everyday you gotta wake up and OWN ur responsibility. Just b/c ur a celeb don’t make UR feelings and more sensitive. Think about THAT family and there grief. U decided to be a celeb than deal with the comments OR just don’t read them.

  2. WOW! You really went in on Brady–what did she do to you? Are you related to person that was harmed? Are you a celebrity? I don’t think so becuase if you were you wouldn’t be trying to get at Brandy like this…….

    I understand what she’s (Brandy) saying—-people are so ignorant when they come on these blogg sites/twitter etc……why would you want to hurt someone feelings; someone you don’t even know, that has done nothing at all to you…I’m just don’t understand…..

  3. @ longlegged you are the exact person she is talking about. Yes, we realize that a life was lost but do you hold that against someone for life. It was what they said it was an accident and though we are sorry for the famiy that lost a loved one, we should allow the woman to move on with her life and heal. We forget to realize that she was affected in this incident as well. She has to go through life knowing that she has caused the death of another person, that in itself is depressing then we have people like you putting your nonsense input into it. Have you ever experienced something like this??? Have you ever been in an accident that has taken someones life??? If you have then you should know what she is going through, but if you havent you need to shut up and take a seat!!!!!!

  4. I understand where Brandy is coming from. It seemed like it was a horrible mistake on her part….I am not really sure if she was drinking or not. But if she was thats a shame.

    But she should really stay off the web because that is poisin for her. If it hurts her that bad she doesn’t need to read what people say about her.

    When people tried to say that Beyonce couldn’t sing and tried to take that fake audio and say it was her Beyonce said she had not heard about it, someone had to tell her about it. So Brandy needs to stick to not looking at the web.

  5. No I am not – I am speaking for those who can’t and/or aren’t B/C THEY ARE NOT A CELEB!!!!! That family is not getting “posting” on Bloggs are television appearances….what about them? I guess yall don’t care about them b/c they don’t sing and they don’t have a song you can sing a long to….smh!

  6. @ LONGLEGGED

    I don’t mean to be rude, but that family recieved a large settlement. I am not saying that smoothes everything over, but you can’t sit there are chastise someone for something they did their whole life. This was one mistake out of her whole entire life.

    If you never got a second chance after you messed up on something where would your ass be? Dancing on the corner for an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar?

  7. People let it go, it was a mistake, it happened and cant be changed. What is the purpose of bringing it up and throwing it in her face. Its already something she has to live with for the rest of her life. God forgives- he is the only one with power, the media should- really who are they? I couldnt be mad with her if he happened to me, God does everything for a reason, he has a purpose for use all. Let it go, stop holding on to that mess. LONGLEGGED, get over it!!!

  8. ya’ll say let it go…Some says the family recieved a large settlement so its time to move on…. Ok all thats cool, fine, and dandy… but ever birthday, holiday, and special event, there is a family who is missing another family memeber because of neligence. Yeah Brandy has to “live” with the fact that she killed someone else. But that other family has to “live” with the fact that their family member(s) are dead. SO its reall like a double edged sword.

  9. karen i totally agree wit u. atleast brandy is still alive to ask someone to respect, that poor lady will never have the chance to/ amen longlegged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. FIRST OF ALL BRANDY WHAT YOU WENT THROUGH I WILL NOT WISH THAT ON ANYBODY….I DO RESPECT YOUR FEELINGS AND OTHER PPL SHOULD TOO…I DONT FIND IT FUNNY CAUSE I AM SURE IT HAS TAKEN A TOLL ON YOUR HEART…BUT TRUST AND KNOW THAT GOD KNOWS IT WAS AN ACCIDENT AND I DO TOO….I REALLY KNOW THAT YOU DID NOT SET OUT TO HURT ANYONE ON THAT DAY….SO YOUR FEELING ARE WELL RESPECTED FROM ME AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU…AND REMEMBER LET GO AND LET GOD….DONT WORRY ABOUT THE IGNORANCE OF PPL…..TAKE CARE

  11. C’mon now…if this was a story about someone who wasn’t a celebrity, no one would have any sympathy. If Brandy didn’t want people to say mean things about her ,she should have been paying attention when she was behind the wheel. The fact that she’s complaining about this just means that she’s a spoiled brat who hasn’t accepted responsibility for her actions. If she did, she would just accept the comments and move on.

    Paying the victims family doesn’t make things ok. It just means that you can pay to stay out of jail. It’s amazing that people still support her.

  12. I feel Brandy, let it go.I know she feel like shit (someone died). Only god can judge her.
    Smh at longlegged ! Do u want her to kill herself, go to jail, WHAT.?? I mean really SHIT happens, I dont think Brandy set out to kill anyone. I feel for the family of the lost one, but we cant expect Brandy to just stop living or give up on her career. What kind of example would that be for her daughter. U want Brandy to give up but im happy she is leaving that for the cowards.

  13. Everyone has valid points. We are all entitled to our opinions. She can’t forget her position and that people talked about Jesus and she isn’t an exception. – Courtney L.

  14. Boy I hope you guys with the negative comments towards Brandy never get in an accident thru fought of your own….I mean the girl had a accident…we all do it all the time not payin attention or doin somethin else while driving and then we end up slamming on breaks…it’s just that day for her she couldn’t stop in time….it teaches her as well as us to always pay attention on the freeway…trust me she’s dealing with enough by knowing that lady is not hear anymore….why would someone continue to write nasty things to her…i mean atleast she was crying and in shock at the scene the police said….unlike a few other celebs that have ran over people “HALLE BERRY” and decided to keep goin…Brandy stayed at the scene in shock….why? becuz she’s HUMAN like us!!!! I just hope you guys are really good drivers that pay attention 100% when driving and that it doesn’t happen to anyone of you!!!!

  15. Accidents happen, Brandy is human like the rest of us. Longlegged u sound like an idiot. I hope you never have an accident where someone gets seriously hurt. God forbid…u better be very careful..oh so u think u could NEVER make a mistake on the road..I know I’ll never walk near u for fear of being struck by lightining. lol…anywho, we love u Brandy. Accidents happened before u were born and will continue to happen once you’re gone. So glad you’ve remained drug free and a positive role model for young ladies. Keep up the good work!!

  16. Accidents do happen but they treat celebs like they’re above us regular people.If she was just some normal woman who got into a accident, she would be LOCKED UP LIKE hulk hogan’s son, he went to jail for the same thing so stop making DOUBLE standards!!

  17. I love Brandy and really think that she’s a good person. But you took a life. Simple as that you played a part in someone not being here today. No matter how many songs you have or shows you do that will always be with you. You can not and should not expect for people to over long that. You are on t.v. with your family every week and I watch and love the show but I also cant help but feel the pain foe the kids and husband who lost. Your daughter gets to see your face everyday but those boys only have memories. Giving a settlement does not over shadow that life taken at the hands of a unresponsible driver. I understand that you want to heal but your fans are hurting for those kids with no mom. Just like they have to live with seeing you live your life with your family your gonna have to live with not everyone has forgotten what you did. I say this with love not hate. Praying for you and your family as well as the victims family.

  18. You people are stupid. You do need to consider her feelings too. she took a life and has to live with that fault for the rest of her life. Don’t past judgement on a person in a situation like that unless you’ve gone through a similar experience (taking someone’s life ACCIDENTALLY). I cant even imagine what Brandi(another child of god) is emotionally going through. i know it sucks for the family to no longer have the loved one that they cherished but it equally sucks for Brandi who’s the reason that that life is gone so have some respect for her feelings too
