Aaron Carter Goes on Twitter Rant After His Arrest: 'Never Be Bullied Into Silence'
By Rachel McRady
Aaron Carter is continuing to defend himself. The 29-year-old performer was arrested in Habersham County, Georgia, on Saturday night, and after releasing a statement and rebuffing his brother Nick Carter’s comments of support, Aaron had some additional thoughts, which he expressed on Twitter.
“Walk away from gossip and verbal defamation. Speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same,” the pop singer captioned a shirtless selfie of himself in a towel.

“As I lay restless I remember this moment that happened at Wango Tango this spring,” he wrote. “My mentor/friend Michael Jackson left this for me to have one day and many thanks to Raffles for gifting this to me at a much needed time. Looking back at my life, these words hold so much more weight today than they ever have. Thank you for all of your gifts and most importantly the gift of music and love. I miss you immensely MJ.”
As ET previously reported, Aaron did not appreciate his older brother Nick Carter tweeting him support following his arrest.
Nick wrote, "To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better. Family isn't always easy, [but] we're all here for you."
Aaron’s replied to Nick’s comment in a statement through his rep, saying, "If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down."

The Carter family has suffered several tragic losses in the past few years with the death of Nick and Aaron’s sister, Leslie, in 2012, and the loss of their father, Robert, in May of this year.
