The homie Brandy, a frequent target of Internet haters, is pleading with the bloggers to have more respect for her feelings â€“ particularly when commenting about her 2006 car accident that led to the death of motorist Awatef Aboudihaj. This is what she said:
â€œSometimes we donâ€™t read the comments because of what weâ€™ve seen people say in the past about us,â€ Brandy wrote on her blog. â€œOkay, you donâ€™t like my shoes, you donâ€™t like my outfit, cool, but the rest of it, like bringing up the car accident?â€
Brandy, currently starring in VH1â€™s â€œBrandy & Ray J: Family Business,â€ escaped criminal charges but was sued by the deceased womanâ€™s family. She settled with them in November, but insists sheâ€™s still struggling to put the incident behind her.
â€œPeople just go too far. way too far,â€ Brandy said of bloggers. â€œBut people are going to be who they are. As long as Iâ€™m not like that, and even if I wasnâ€™t me and I was tweeting about another celebrity, I would never say anything bad about somebody like that. Iâ€™m glad that Iâ€™m that type of a personâ€¦ I just think people should have respect. We have feelings.â€
Brandy is asking people to consider that performers are â€œsensitiveâ€ and often hurt by vicious tweets and blog postings about their activities.
â€œItâ€™s real. It affects us. Trust me. It really does,â€ she wrote. :Weâ€™re people at the end of the day with feelings. You know weâ€™re sensitive because weâ€™re artists. You know that stuff is going to hurt sometimes.â€
