Chris Brown may be showing his support for Eva Marcille as a host for the rumored America’s Next Top Model reboot, but is Brown also throwing a little shade at Kevin McCall by supporting the singer’s ex on Instagram?
Earlier this month, Chris Brown and Kevin McCall made headlines after the duo took to social media to exchange some heated words reportedly stemming from an unresolved business deal. McCall sparked his online feud with Chris Brown by taking to Twitter to inform the “Deuces” collaborator that they “need to sit down and handle this business” before noting, “I feel my kindness is being taken for weakness,” Vibe reports.
McCall went on to further blast Chris Brown by calling the singer a “coward” before instructing Brown’s fans to refrain from purchasing his music, “Ps I don’t really care for #teambreezy please never buy my album or support me. The rest of the Leaders of the world already do. #fame.”
Shortly after Chris Brown was notified of Kevin McCall’s Twitter posts about their unresolved business, Brown took to Instagram to slam the R&B singer in a lengthy comment while detailing the reason that McCall was reportedly dropped from Brown’s record label.
“If this is recent then I will say this. N***** THAT HAVE THE PROPER CHANNELS TO CONNECT AND WORK ARE THERE. N****** BE IN THEY FEELINGS SNEAK DISSING BECAUSE THEY F***ED UP THEY LIFE BEING TOO F****** ARROGANT AND THEN NOBODY WANTED TO WORK WITH YOU EVIN. THE LABEL DROPPED YOU BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE A BETTER PRODUCER AND WRITER THAN THE N***** YOU ARE TODAY,” Chris Brown began in his rant to Kevin McCall, as captured by a fan on Twitter.
To make matters more interesting, Eva Marcille, who shares a daughter with Kevin McCall, took to Instagram to throw shade at Kevin in regard to his Instagram feud with Brown, prompting McCall to diss his former flame on Instagram.
According to Bossip, McCall initially tagged Eva directly in his Instagram post before editing and eventually deleting the message from Instagram.

“@evamarcille don’t help them tear your child’s dad down…don’t sit back and eat pop corn as u jus posted…make a difference,” McCall began in his Instagram rant to Eva alongside a message that reads, “I feel that the moment women began telling men they didn’t need them, was the moment it started to strip men from what God called and created them to be for us.”
Just weeks after Kevin McCall dissed Eva Marcille’s lack of support for his feud with Chris Brown, it appears that Brown is returning the favor to Eva by showing his support for the former America’s Next Top Model winner amid rumors suggesting that the model may serve as a host for the show’s alleged reboot.
In a screengrab captured by the Shade Room, Chris Brown appeared to show his support for Eva’s rumored hosting gig for ANTM after he commented on a fan’s post about the model with a rocket-emoji.
While Eva hasn’t directly responded to Chris Brown’s comment, fans took to the comment section on Instagram to debate over whether or not Brown was aiming to diss Kevin McCall or throw shade at ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who is rumored to serve as a judge on the ANTM reboot, by publicly supporting Marcille’s rumored hosting position.
One fan attempted to dispel rumors suggesting that Chris Brown’s outward support for Eva Marcille as ANTM‘s rumored host is a dig aimed at Karrueche, explaining, “How are ppl even interpreting this as shade? The post is abt Eva the HOST. Kae was being considered for a JUDGE role. There is one host & multiple judges. Two diff issues ppl…,” while another suggests, “Or he’s tryna come at Kevin McCall, either way he’s petty.”
