Pink, 32-year-old singer, recently revealed that her life was threatened by fans of R&B superstar Chris Brown.

Pink, born Alecia Beth Moore, enraged 23-year-old Brown's fans when she questioned his lip-singing performance at the 202 Billboard Music Awards last May.

"One day if I lipsync, I hope I do it as well as him," Pink tweeted after Brown's performance.

However, the singer recently told News.com.au that her tweet caused Brown's fans to physically threaten her.

"There are so many haters in the world, so many miserable people, it was a joke. It wasn't even meant like, 'I hate Chris Brown,'" the singer said. "Twitter brings out the best and worst in people – myself included. With the Chris Brown thing I got death threats for days."

The singer and mother detailed some of the threats she received.

"My favorite was, 'I will snatch you within an inch of your life.' I don't know how that works exactly, but whatever you want. The Internet has created monsters," she told News.com.au. "People that wouldn't have the b***s to say anything in person but they get a keyboard under their fingers and, well, there's that saying, 'Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority.'"

Last May, Brown also had to call for his fans to stop threatening model and the fiancee of singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen.

"Team Breezy! Lets stop sending death threats!" Brown tweeted after some of his fans were calling for Teigen to be "murdered" and sexually assaulted.

Teigen, 26-year-old model, began receiving threats from fans of Brown on Twitter after she tweeted about Brown's performance on the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.

"So excited to see Chris Brown! I love loud and surprising background fits of rage I can hear from the audience!" Teigen tweeted. "Why sing when you can dance?"

Although they were trying to defend him, Brown tweeted to his fans to tell them that they were sending the wrong message to his critics.

"I know y'all bout that life but it's the wrong message," Brown tweeted last May. "(You're) turning haters into victims!"
