Justin Bieber Jokingly “Strangles” Chris Brown In Controversial New Photo
Justin Bieber jokingly strangles Chris Brown in a photo the pop star shared Monday morning on Instagram. In the new pic, Bieber has his hand wrapped around his friend’s neck while Brown’s mouth hangs open.
“Had fun with the homey @Chrisbrownofficial,” Bieber captioned the snapshot. While The Biebs may have been joking around, he is now the target of backlash on social media for posting the choking pic, given Brown’s history of domestic violence. Many are asking Bieber to remove the the controversial photo from his Instagram account.
Last month, Brown opened up about his violent history with Rihanna on “Ebro In The Morning” on Hot 97. During the interview, the performer said he feels “remorse” about the incident of abuse, but that he is sick of apologizing. “You can only say it but so many times, and I feel like through the years I’ve said it enough, to where it’s like, ‘Bro, if you’re still on that, I feel sorry for y’all, because it’s over with,'” said Brown, noting that he and Rihanna had “made amends.”
Brown also took to social media last week to apologize for blasting his on-and-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran and accusing her of cheating on him with Drake. “Being young and dumb is one of my strong suits and emotional at best,” he wrote. “I love hard and react impulsively when I’m hurt at times. I don’t think social media is a place to air out or hash out personal problems and a n*gga feel hella WACK for doing it.” Check out the full photo of Bieber and Brown below, and tell us what you think.
