Chris Brown has really stepped in it again, inserting himself into the Kehlani suicide attempt by claiming it was a ploy for sympathy and the internet has totally turned against him!
Uh oh! Leave it to Chris Brown, 26, to never shy away from a controversy and this time he’s found himself in hot water after slamming singer Kehlani, 20, and her suicide attempt after her cheating scandal as nothing more than a cry for sympathy and attention. But he’s not receiving any support as the Twittersphere has turned on the singer and the wrath against him is overwhelming.
Chris just doesn’t seem to know when leave well enough alone, and on March 29 he unleashed a cruel Twitter message that singer Kehlani’s suicide attempt following her cheating scandal with Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving, 24, and its subsequent fallout was staged for sympathy. The singer posted a Twitter message that “There is no attempting suicide. Stop flexing for the gram. Doing sh*t for sympathy so them comments under your pics don’t look so bad.” Wonder what he’ll say about her brand new hairstyle?
This did NOT go over well with the Twittersphere, as fans erupted against his claims. It’s especially bad considering he’s battled back claims of sexism towards women and he had no reason to inject himself into this drama. But he just couldn’t help himself and let loose on social media, only to collect a firestorm of criticism that he would actually go there. Stream Chris’ music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
Needless to say, Chris faced a major backlash on Twitter because of his comments and here’s a sampling of what the internet had to say:
Let's all stop being surprised when Chris Brown does a terrible thing

Suicide is NOT a joke @chrisbrown. Your misogyny is disgusting & if you don't think attempted suicide is real, look at your own career.

Our new Spider-Man starlet Zendaya has unfollowed Chris Brown after his recent, garbage tweets I'm so proud.

I do admire Chris Brown's commitment to being trash. If you can't be good, kind, or wise, you can always at least be consistent.

chris brown raising a little girl into a woman is a scary thought. 😓

Chris Brown is a perfect example that having a daughter won't make a man less of a misogynist. It's scary to know he's raising a young girl.

When will our generation stop seeing Chris Brown as a respectable artist? Does he have to brutally beat another woman or….?

I hope Chris Brown pays his publicist 10 million a year CAUSE he can't seem to shut his mouth. He ruins his career YEARLY.

Chris Brown's ability to spew such misogyny in his tweets all whilst having his daughter as his profile picture, really blows mines…

HollywoodLifers, do you think Chris should have stayed away from this topic? What do you think of his diss against Kehlani?
