Did I owe my ex more respect?

I went through a nasty breakup 6 weeks ago where I told off my ex then dumped him on text after he told me he wanted to smash my face in and also wished I would go jump off a building. I'm torn because normally I give people the respect of breaking up with them in person, but after what he said to me, I also kind of felt I didn't owe him anything at that point. Thoughts?
