Chris Brown just tweeted about wanting to do a tour with ex-girlfriend and singer, Rihanna, and stirred quite the reaction among readers!
Chris Brown has broken the internet by mentioning Rihanna in a single tweet. It is important to note that back in 2009, when Chris Brown was romantically linked to Rihanna, he pleaded guilty to physically assaulting her. This then brought their love affair to an end.
He wrote, “Just thinking…. A CRAZY WORLD TOUR would BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRUNO MAR, CHRIS BROWN. “2 for 2″. And if y’all decide to do it without me…. give me 10%”
While some are calling out Chris for his tweet, others are defending him.
The Rihanna fan club had a strong reaction to their idol’s assaulter asking for a chance to share the stage with her.
One said, “Chris Brown fanbase consists of people who can excuse domestic abuse, and people who consider the shade room a valid media outlet.”
Another angry Rihanna fan said, “Did Chris Brown really just mention Rihanna in his recent tweet?”
Another concerned fan tweeted, “Concerning and baffling to me that grown adults support and celebrate Chris Brown knowing he’s a domestic abuser.”
There were others who found it hard to come to terms with the idea of Chris Brown being stacked in the same category as Rihanna, Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
One such person stated, “Chris Brown really thinks he’s on any of their levels… that’s cute.”
Another Twitter user trolled him and said, “That’s fine, we don’t want him on the same stage as rih, he can keep the 10%.”
A third one blatantly stated, “I really don’t know who gassed you up and told you were special enough or possess the caliber to tour with Beyonce, because you’re nothing of the sort.”
However, among all this bashing, there were Chris Brown loyalists who came to his rescue and defended his talent.
Actor and writer, Sarunas J Jackson, said, “Chris Brown is the best performer this generation has ever seen. Say what you will. Hate him all you want. Can’t ignore that talent at all lol. Just can’t.”
Another loyal fan said, “People saying Chris Brown not on Beyonce, Rihanna or Bruno level. Listen… you ain’t gotta like him but talent wise….. That man is THERE!!!!! CLASSIC AFTER CLASSIC AFTER CLASSIC. We can argue.”
A third said, “People are still letting that situation with Chris Brown and Rihanna cloud their brains that they forget Chris Brown is still incredibly talented and definitely up there with the greats.”
As for Rihanna, she hasn’t commented on this or replied to the tweet.
