Chris Brown may be garnering backlash for his heated exchange with former CBE artist Kevin McCall yesterday, but it appears that McCall is also receiving heat from fans after reportedly dragging Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, into their online spat on Wednesday.
Kevin McCall and Chris Brown’s online feud began on Tuesday after McCall took to Twitter to shade Chris Brown for not handling “business,” telling the singer via a direct tweet, “We need to sit down and handle business. I tried the adult business route. I feel my kindness is being taken for weakness.”

While it’s unclear what prompted McCall’s sudden animosity-filled tweet towards Chris Brown, it appears that Kevin has a long history of tension with Brown stemming from disagreements over the singer’s musical career.
XXL Magazine notes that prior to their exchange on Wednesday, Kevin McCall previously opened up about his ongoing issues with Chris Brown during an interview with Vlad TV, where McCall argues that Brown “went off on him” after he decided to collaborate with Keke Palmer against his wishes. In addition, Kevin McCall recently confirmed to In Flex We Trust that his new album is to be titled F.A.M.E., which is ironically the same title as Chris Brown’s 2011 LP release.
Shortly after his initial tweet towards Brown, Kevin McCall went on to blast Chris Brown’s fans by asking “Team Breezy” to stop supporting his music by buying his album.

Despite McCall’s prediction that Chris would simply ignore his Twitter comments, Chris Brown took to Instagram to blast the “Yo Chick” singer with an Instagram post asking fans, “Do you know who Kevin McCall is?”

Chris Brown further responded to Kevin McCall’s Twitter posts with a lengthy Instagram rant in which he tells the singer, “This street s*** is what I’m great at, a lot better than music. You better check the loose lips [before] I show [you] the real devil my n****.”
Not long after Brown’s post began making headlines, Kevin McCall proceeded to drag Karrueche Tran into the debate, when he took to Twitter to diss Chris Brown over rumors suggesting that Karrueche was previously dating model Tyson Beckford following Tran’s split from Chris last year.
“@tysonbeckford Wussup big bro…I was thinking lets go out & take some light skin n***** girls later today,” McCall began, “you already did? Damn *laughing-crying emoji*.”
While McCall didn’t name Karrueche directly in his tweet, fans were swift to shut down the singer’s attempt to allegedly drag the model into his ongoing Twitter battle with Chris.
“@kevinmccall why you gotta bring other ppl in this beef,” one fan asks, while another adds, “@kevinmccall @TysonBeckFord you really didn’t have to [stoop] to this level of Petty…Y’all are embarrassing us as a whole.”
Chris Brown previously addressed his former feud with Tyson Beckford during an interview with Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning earlier this year, when he told the radio show that he felt “insecure” seeing Karrueche hang out with another man.
“That was me being insecure,” Chris Brown explained of his decision to lash out at Beckford via social media after seeing the model pose for a picture with Karrueche.
“I took it upon myself to be an a**hole,” Chris Brown further explained. “Someone else was taking a picture with my girl and I wasn’t getting a chance to talk to her.”
