Demise

On June 22, 2015, Greg Tweeted a few people he followed on Twitter to ask them why they were following Chris Brown, an American singer known for brutally beating his then girlfriend, Rihanna, back in 2009. "@RonnieRadke why do you follow Chris Brown? Do you support confirmed women beaters?". (Source) Ronnie replies and they have a brief Twitter fight. Ronnie explains he supports Chris Brown's talents and not his personal life. He asks not to concentrate on stranger's personal lives and to forgive and forget. (Source)

Afterword, Greg continued to Tweet about his disgust in Ronnie's decision to not un-follow Chris from Twitter. One of these Tweets was an image Greg created. The picture included the famous brutal photograph of Rihanna after being beaten by Chris. On the photograph, he pasts a screen shot of Ronnie asking "Can we not focus on people's faults and forgive?". Under the photograph, he pastes an excerpt from he and Ronnie's brief fight from that day. "@RonnieRadke there is no forgiveness for people who beat women. You supporting him is absolutely disgusting. You're disgusting." The right of the image is black and in big white text it reads: "Don't worry Rihanna, Ronnie Radke forgives Chris Brown for beating you."

After the many attacks on Ronnie's character from Greg, Ronnie made the decision to leave Twitter. (Source)
