Updated 3:35 p.m. ET: Fans of Chris Brown are coming to his defense on Twitter after the singer's nasty back and forth with comedy writer Jenny Johnson. A number of users threatened to kill Johnson and she tweeted that she was alarmed by the threats, which she encouraged Twitter to look into. 

Original Hollywood Reporter story: Another day, another Chris Brown controversy. The singer has deleted his Twitter account -- again -- on the heels of a heated exchange with comedy writer Jenny Johnson.

According to E! News, Brown sent out a tweet reading, "I look old as [expletive]! I'm only 23...," that prompted Johnson to reply with: "I know! Being a worthless piece of [expletive] can really age a person."

Brown responded: "Take them teeth out when u Sucking my [expletive] HOE."

Apparently, several more tweets followed between the two. Johnson at one point corrected Brown's spelling -- "It's 'HO' not 'HOE' you ignorant [expletive]" she wrote -- and linked to a story about his 2009 assault involving then-girlfriend Rihanna. For his part, Brown -- whose Twitter handle was @ChrisBrown -- repeatedly insulted Johnson.

Celebrity Tweet has compiled the past month's worth of tweets from Brown, who reportedly had 11.6 million followers. The final few read: "To teambreezy... Know that I'm not upset. Just felt like entertaining the ignorance. These [expletive] crazy.. Further proved my point of how immature society is. #CarpeDiem Catch me in traffic..."

Johnson's final tweet on the matter was posted Sunday.

"According to Team Breezy, if you have a difference of opinion with someone, 'eating a [expletive]' is the cure for any and all problems. ‪#Knowledge," she wrote.

According to Huffington Post, Johnson has mocked Brown on Twitter since his 2009 arrest. Her tweet "Call me old fashioned, but Chris Brown should be in prison" has been retweeted more than 1,800 times.

Brown previously deleted his Twitter account in 2009 -- he was then using the handle @MechanicalDummy -- after going on a rant against Walmart and other major retailers, who he claimed had refused to carry his album "Graffiti "(Walmart, in fact, did carry the disc).

At the time, he tweeted: "JUST WAS AT WALMART IN wallingford CT,844 north colony.. the didnt even have my album in the back... not on shelves, saw for myself...we talked to the managers and the didnt even know anything. wow!!! but they had alicia keys album ready for release for this tuesday comin...no disprespect to alicia at all.. just givin an example to whos album is loaded and ready to go next week."

He later wrote: "I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT. I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Brown's latest Twitter-related controversy comes just a few weeks after he tweeted out a photo of himself dressed as a terrorist for Halloween, which many people called racist.

He also cursed out his critics on Twitter after the Grammys earlier this year before deleting those tweets.
