Brown, who takes to Twitter non-stop, tweeted a photo of his bloodied cut chin (pictured below) and the following message which both has since been removed from his Twitter site:

“How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”

As a result of the brawl, five people were injured — though not seriously.  There were only bumps, bruises, and lacerations reported.

New York City police were summoned between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. and quickly hightailed it to the scene.  Brown had left the premises by the time the officers arrived at the club.

Drake was reportedly in London at the time of the brawl.

No arrests have been made, although the story is still developing.
