Chris Brown has rejoined Twitter after feuding with a comedian on the social networking website last month and he seems ready to overcome his past with domestic violence in front of his fans.
Brown, 23-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer, recently tweeted a link to a domestic violence charity upon his return to Twitter.
"Team Breezy! Vote for love and respect," Brown tweeted along with a link to vote for the Break The Cycle charity in the upcoming American Giving Awards sponsored by Chase Bank.
The award show will premiere on NBC, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. People can vote for their favorite charities online to decide where Chase should donate $2 million in grants. Various celebrities are scheduled to make an appearance at the award show, and Brown made sure to take to Twitter to remind fans to vote for the domestic violence charity after being criticized for physically assaulting Rihanna in 2009.
The charity of Brown's choice, Break The Cycle, works to "engage, educate and empower youth to build lives and communities free from domestic and dating violence," according to the organization's Facebook page. Brown's link to vote for the charity comes after he engaged in a vulgar Twitter debate with comedic writer Jenny Johnson who criticized him for his own role in leaving ex-girlfriend Rihanna battered three years ago.
Although Brown was the subject of controversy after the domestic dispute resulted in him now being on supervised probation, he insisted that he is working on himself while speaking out against domestic violence.
"I think everybody feels so attached to this old situation. I mean it is still a detrimental situation because of the stuff that we deal with today and that's why I'm doing like the Jenesse Center and all these other stuff that shows that domestic violence is not okay," Brown said in an interview on California radio station Power 106 FM last month. "But as far as like our personal lives, I think people just have to like give it a chance, not even give it a chance – shut the hell up! That's basically what it is! Because at the end of the day, whatever opinion they have is not going to change what I'm doing and it hasn't and it's not going to change what they are doing."
