Miranda Lambert's Concert Message: "Beating a Woman Is Never Okay"

The singer spoke out against domestic abuse at a recent concert -- and her message seemed to be slamming Chris Brown

Miranda Lambert refuses to stay silent about her feelings regarding Chris Brown. At a concert last Thursday in Amherst, Mass., Lambert once again took the opportunity to speak out against domestic abuse -- an obvious reference to Brown, whom she openly criticized via Twitter after the Grammy Awards.

"I just have to speak my mind, because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never okay," she told her concert audience. "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun."

The country star, 28, first expressed her dismay that Brown was enjoying a comeback after his two-song Grammy performance and subsequent win.

"Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl...Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to "Gunpowder and Lead" and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys," she posted on Twitter.

Brown responded sarcastically to Lambert on Twitter: "Using my name to get publicity? I love it! Perform your heart out! Go buy Miranda Lambert album! So motivational and 'PERFECT'!"

But Lambert, 28, has a reason for taking the issue to heart. According to Us Weekly, the singer revealed in a 2011 Behind the Music special that when she was growing up, her family sheltered battered women in their home.

So even if Rihanna herself forgives and collaborates with Brown, it looks like Lambert will never be on Team Breezy.
