Following Chris Brown’s parking-lot brawl with Frank Ocean over the weekend, the problem-plagued R&B singer attempted to maintain a lower profile on social media, posting to Instagram on Monday that he wants to stay focused on his work, “not negativity” — along with a controversial crucifix painting.
On Tuesday (January 29), Brown took things a step further when he switched his Instagram account from public to private, effectively disconnecting himself from his 2 million followers. Before making the switch, Brown thanked his fans, a.k.a. Team Breezy, for all their love and support of his music and his art and posted one final message and a redirect to his official website.
“Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons,” Brown wrote. “So with that, I’m detaching myself from that world.”
