Normani recently collaborated with Chris Brown on his music video for his song “WE (Warm Embrace).” She is now being slammed by fans for working with Chris Brown due to his history of abuse allegations.
The Fifth Harmony singer took to Instagram to share a snippet of her dancing with Brown romantically and even kissing CB. Fans were quick to comment on her video.
One user wrote, “girl WTF????,” and another added, “but??? im so confused.”
A few fans were very specific. They wrote, “why would u link up with a ‘man’ like him?,” “could’ve worked with anyone else but someone with multiple abuse allegations,” “I can’t believe we’re still working with him 😢” and “NOO NOT THE ABUSER.” Some users even requested her to delete the post and called it “disappointing.”
Critics also used the occasion to remind followers that Normani had worked with Rihanna, who was Brown’s ex and who he viciously attacked in 2009. Brown dated Rihanna for about two years before he attacked her. He eventually pled guilty to criminal assault and received a five-year probation term.
In 2012, the couple reunited for a year, which Rihanna subsequently labeled a “mistake.” She has subsequently openly forgiven her ex and requested that her followers do the same. However, Brown’s troubling conduct is said to have persisted with several love partners throughout the years.
Despite the troubling charges leveled against Brown, it appears Normani has long been a fan of his, and has even defended him in the past. Back in 2014, she took to Twitter to write, “I love him & his personal life has nothing to do with how talented he is.”
Karrueche Tran obtained a five-year restraining order against brown in 2017 due to her worries about his reportedly abusive conduct toward her. Also, last summer, Brown was being investigated for reportedly slapping a lady after an argument at his Los Angeles home. Earlier this year, another woman was suing him for allegedly drugging and raping her at a party. Brown has refuted both allegations.
