The Twittersphere is heating up with a bitter battle of tweets between rapper Chris Brown and Brian McKnight!! Brian went on a not-so-nice Twitter rant Saturday night and Chris was none-to-happy about it. Although Brian took cheap shots at R. Kelly and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. as well, it was Chris who was quick to respond.

It all started with Brian's tweet, which read, "Since everyone's so opinionated I'm taking suggestions on what I should do next I'm thinking rent a lambo and beat the s**t outta my girl.... That's acceptable these days." He then tweeted again, writing, "Or maybe have sex with a 14 year old girl an film it that's acceptable these days," which is in reference to R. Kelly's run-in with the law. And finally one last blow to Mayweather in the tweet that read, "Or let the court system let me make 35 million before I do my 87 days in a private cell for domestic abuse that's acceptable these days."

Although Brian tried to do damage control, tweeting, "I meant no disrespect to anyone I was merely pointing out that In today's society anything goes and WE Are all to blame the end," it was too late and Chris was on the defensive.

Chris didn't hold back in his response, tweeting, "I see how this works now. When peoples careers get to the "nobody cares" stage they use my name for publicity! Lol." But that wasn't the end of it, Chris went on, tweeting, "I can't keep helping these old n**gas. Its miracle the way I'm bringing the dead alive!" Adding, "I would've gladly wrote you something that would make u look less irrelevant!" Finally ending his tweet attack with, "Listening to "let me show u how ur P works"!!!!! THAT SH** IS TRASH! If u need help just ask!"

Brian should really think twice about bashing other artist because his own work wasn't quite up to par. Think he learned his lesson?

What do you make of all this Twitter madness?
