Chris Brown Faces Backlash Following Ciara Collab

Chris Brown's proclamation about not being blacklisted in the music scene stems from Instagrammers who talked badly about him after Ciara announced their collaboration. Ciara posted a clip of herself and Chris Brown at a photo shoot on Aug. 3 and announced their song's arrival, which can be seen below. "Damn, this is so sad. I loved Ciara so much," one fan commented underneath the post.

Chris Brown Fights Constant Calls for Cancellation

Although Chris Brown didn't mention why he's currently looked down upon, one particular incident from 14 years ago could have a part to play in the 34-year-old musician's cancellation. Chris Brown has been trying to be in the public's good graces since he assaulted Rihanna during an argument when they were dating in 2009. Although Riri stated in 2020 that she's forgiven Chris, it hasn't stopped others from giving him a bad rap. Every time Chris Brown does a song with a female artist, people constantly call for his cancellation. For instance, Breezy got others riled up after Chloe Bailey announced on Twitter that he would be on her song, "How Does It Feel," on Feb. 13.
