Rihanna, Karrueche Tran: Singer’s Fans Threaten Chris Brown’s Girlfriend

A handful of Twitter users really want Rihanna to get back together with Chris Brown — the man who beat her up on the eve of the 2009 Grammys — and if that doesn’t speak to their attitudes on violence, their recent tweets do.

As TMZ reports, several Rihanna fans have tweeted death threats to Karrueche Tran, Brown’s current girlfriend. The ‘Talk That Talk’ singer may have unwittingly instigated the attacks last week when she tweeted a picture that was an apparent jab at Tran.

RiRi decorated a package of rice cakes with sunglasses and hoop earrings. Tran is Vietnamese and put out a photo of herself wearing shades and similar jewelry, which probably explains the joke. The accompanying text read, “Ima make u my bitch.”

It’s strong language, but some supporters have gone a step further, tweeting at Tran, who’s also a blonde, with messages like, “I hope Rihanna beat the dog s— outa yo ass!” “Watch yo back” and “I will kill you.”

Brown is reportedly sticking by his lady and being “100 percent supportive,” as TMZ puts it, but rumors persist that he’ll soon announce his reconciliation with RiRi. Either way, someone is bound to get hurt — hopefully only emotionally.
