See Brown's response after singer says she doesn't "want to be associated with an artist that has assaulted women on a day like today."
This might be one of the most random social media beefs ever.
Chris Brown and Vanessa Carlton got into an Instagram feud Thursday morning, after Brown shared one of her music videos on his page. Brown captioned a clip from her "A Thousand Miles" video, "MOOD. THIS SONG LIT FOREVER," but she was definitely not feeling the love in return.
"Today Chris Brown posted my video. I am now being repeatedly tagged to his account. being that today is International Women's Day I feel compelled to draw a line," she posted on Instagram, but later removed. "I support survivors not perpetrators of domestic violence. I do not want to be associated with an artist that has assaulted women on a day like today. Thank you. #internationalwomensday"
Though she pulled her response from Instagram -- which she has since set to private -- the post still remains on her Facebook page. Brown re-grammed it as well, and responded to her message.
"@vanessacarltonactual I posted a song that was and still is a great song and the artist felt she was doing her duty as a WOMAN to continue to spread this kind of hatred today," he wrote. "I won't keep it up long. I just hope she knows she is loved and her song is 👍🏾 great."
He eventually pulled down his initial post of her music video, as well as his response -- but later posted a clip from "White Chicks" where Terry Crews' character rocks out to Carlton's hit. His caption: "I LOVE THIS SONG."
Brown was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats in 2009, after an argument with then-girlfriend Rihanna turned physical. He pleaded guilty at the time and, as part of his plea deal, was sentenced to complete community service and five years probation.
Carlton had no additional comment when contacted by TooFab.
