Chris Brown wrote an impassioned response to Scottish band Chvrches after they slammed their recent collaborator Marshmello for working with "predators and abusers", mentioning Brown and rapper Tyga in their post.
Chris Brown has fired back at Scottish band Chvrches after they criticised music producer Marshmello for working with "predators and abusers."
Chvrches, who recently released their Marshmello collaboration 'Here With Me', published a post explaining how "upset, confused and disappointed" they are in Marshmello's choice to work with Chris Brown and Tyga on his new song 'Light It Up.'
“We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior,” they wrote. “That is not something we can or will stand behind.”
In response to the band's Instagram post, the 29-year-old 'Undecided' singer left a comment underneath and labelled them a "bunch of losers."
Brown wrote, "these are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients. Keep groveling over your own insecurities and hatred.
"IM BLACK AND PROUD," he continued. "AND I KNOW IT HURTS THAT U GUYS ARE STRUGGLING WIT LIFE OR PEACE SO U ARE FORCED TO SEE MY SUCCESS."
He concluded, "You aren't even #2, ( REMEMBER 2nd place only means YOU LOST FIRST! TA-TA. GOODDAY PEASANTS."
Tyga also proceeded to comment on Chvrches' statement, writing, “Where all God’s children. Everyone makes mistakes no ones perfect. Let’s Keep the energy positive.”
Both Brown and Tyga have faced public scrutiny in the past. In 2009, Brown infamously assaulted Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time, while his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran also accused the singer of abusing her. She was later granted a restraining order against him.
The singer was also recently arrested in Paris following an accusation from a woman claiming he raped her in a hotel. The singer was released, while the investigation continues.
Meanwhile, Tyga faced criticism back in 2015 after his relationship with Kylie Jenner was made public. Jenner was said to have been underage at the beginning of their romance.
The band are yet to respond to both Brown and Tyga, although lead singer Lauren Mayberry has posted screenshots of alleged abusive messages she has received from fans of the duo since the statement released.
"Angry men on the internet can call me all the names they want. I still think domestic abuse is wrong," she wrote. "Peace out, internet. Tomorrow is a brand new day."
