Chris Brown is no stranger to speaking his mind on social media, so when Brown learned that Tinashe recently opened up about her decision to unfollow her “Player” collaborator on Twitter as a result of his harsh criticism of Kehlani’s suicide attempt, Chris Brown took to Twitter to respond to Tinashe’s claims.
Last week, Chris Brown came under fire after he took to Twitter to blast singer Kehlani for reportedly attempting to take her own life following rumors suggesting that she had cheated on boyfriend Kyrie Irving with singer/songwriter PARTYNEXTDOOR.
Brown, who is close friends with Irving, took to the social media site to suggest that Kehlani was merely “flexing for the gram” and “doing s*** for sympathy” by taking to Instagram to share a photo of herself in the hospital following the news of her suicide attempt, prompting female artists such as Tinashe, Zendaya, and two of the five members of Fifth Harmony to unfollow Brown as a result of his comments.
Earlier this week, Tinashe opened up about her recent collaboration with Chris Brown for their steamy track “Player” while revealing to ET Canada that it wasn’t her decision to include Brown as a feature on the chart-topping track.

“It was really the label. It wasn’t me,” Tinashe explained of her collaborative single with Chris Brown, albeit noting that Chris has always been on her list of dream collaborators.
In regard to her future music, Tinashe also explained that she’s interested in collaborating with more female artists in the industry, “In my career, I’ve only worked with one female producer and one female engineer. I want to change that.”
In response to Tinashe’s reported diss towards Chris Brown regarding their “Player” collaboration, the “Back to Sleep” singer took to Instagram to weigh-in with his thoughts on Tinashe’s claims while also brushing off Tinashe, Zendaya, and Fifth Harmony’s decision to unfollow him on social media.
“Zendaya, Tinashe, Normani & Dinah UNFOLLOWED Chris Brown,” one Instagram user explained alongside a meme of Kim Kardashian with the caption, “@chrisbrownofficial if I was you, I wouldn’t give a f*****. You making more anyways.”
“I don’t,” Chris Brown began in response to the fan’s post, as captured by The Shade Room. “They called and needed my help. Not the other way around. I’ve been around for a bit so these ‘celebrities’ fade out musically if they aren’t original, or let’s face it, actually talented. TEAM BREEZY let’s focus on the music and let the bull**** fade away.”
Brown then took to another fan’s post, which compared his own career successes against that of Tinashe, Zendaya, and Fifth Harmony, to tell fans not to “go ham” on other celebrities who aim to put him down as a result of his social media rants.
“TEAM BREEZY, DON’T GO HAM on these little girls. Notice that I’m not the one asking to get on anyone’s record, this is them thinking they are standing for something. Im not in a group nor will I be concerned this much with an opinion,” Chris Brown began in his response. “I’ve ran through the mud and took it like a man. I don’t care if the celebrities don’t like what it is.”
In response to Chris Brown’s social media blast, Tinashe recently opened up to 106KMEL’s Shay Diddy by explaining that her decision to unfollow Chris Brown wasn’t “a big deal to me” while noting that she “kinda laughed it off” when she heard about his rant on social media.

“I just kinda laughed it off, I felt like it was just so unnecessary,” Tinashe explained. “It’s not a big deal to me. I don’t think that follows on Twitter are a big deal. If I see him, I would love to speak to him. I would love if he would reach out. I have absolutely nothing against him. We’re on good terms, as far as I knew,” XXL Magazine reports.
Now, it appears that Chris Brown has responded to Tinashe’s interview regarding their reported feud once again, taking to Instagram on Thursday to comment on a screengrab of the singer’s interview while dissing Tinashe for discussing him in the media.
“I hope she talked about ‘HER’ career for most of his interview ‘WHOISHAE’ TINASHAE,” Brown began in his post, as captured by DJ Akademiks on Instagram. “I hope they rehearsing for those performances (power 106 charity basketball game halftime show) give her credit though, 30 16 year old hobbit face a**. WE WANT MUSIC, WE WANT MUSIC, WE WANT MUSIC!! TEACH ME HOW TO JERK FACE A**.”
