After Rihanna’s spectacular Savage X Fenty fashion show on Amazon Prime, Chris Brown did what we all did — track down more Rihanna content. But instead of being like the rest of us, Brown has a history with Rihanna that’s well-documented, so when he hit up her comments section on Instagram multiple times, fans were understandably shaken.
According to popular lifestyle and beauty magazine, Cosmopolitan, fans responded with fiery comments of their own, telling Brown to lay off and remove himself from Rihanna’s feed. We’re here to tell you everything that went down.
A rocky past
Brown and Rihanna have, to put it lightly, a rocky history. They dated from 2008 to 2009 and broke up after he assaulted her. Cosmo notes that after the incident, he was sentenced to 180 days of community service and five years of probation before the two of them briefly reconnected in 2013. The two worked together and eventually parted ways for good, which is why the smirking-face emoji that he left in her comments left a bad taste in many fans’ mouths.
Better watch out Brown
The Navy, Rihanna’s die-hard fans, clapped right back, telling Brown to step away. With more than 20,000 comments on Ri’s post, here are a few that make it very clear that not many people want to see the two stars connect on any level, virtual or real. Not to worry Riri, we got your back.
Not the first time, might not be the last either
Some of Rihanna’s followers found it strange that the singer hasn’t blocked Brown. And this isn’t the first time he’s tried to catch her attention via comment. Back in 2017, he posted a set of emoji eyes to a post that showed RiRi at 2017’s Crop Over Festival. That comment earned a similar response, but it just goes to show that Brown’s not learning anything from the deluge of negative opinion.
