Justin Bieber posted a controversial picture on Instagram last night and opened a huge portal for discussion for fans. The Insta in question is all about Chris Brown, who has been facing some pushback in the music industry.
It might be that this pushback is what prompted JB to defend Chris on a random Friday night. Because Justin shared an Instagram that compared Chris to Michael Jackson and Tupac. He wrote an impassioned caption about his friend that said:
“Everyone wants to wait til people die To give them the credit they deserve. I’m calling it now when CB passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time. Trust me watch you will see. The people who have over looked this mans talent because of a mistake he made, you need to reevaluate! Love you @chrisbrownofficial.”
Justin didn’t specify if Chris’ “mistake” was about his assaulting Rihanna or his ongoing rape case.
However, JB’s fans were not happy with him for supporting Chris and made their feelings known in the comments section.
Followers said things like: “this is super insensitive and disrespectful to the victims of abuse,” “A mistake???? Are you f*cking kidding me? Wow lost so much respect for JB,” “You need to revaluate yourself if you think that what CB did was a mistake and not a crime…,” “domestic abuse aint a mistake, especially when its done repeatedly.”
