More controversy for Breezy.

Chris Brown has shown his support for NFL player Colin Kaepernick by not standing up for the national anthem on the anniversary of 9/11.

Breezy decided to join the protest against the government, which was started by Kaepernick last month after he refused to stand because of consistent wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the US.

A number of artists including J. Cole and Trey Songz have also pledged their support to the movement. 

However after Chris Brown was spotted sitting down during the anthem at a charity basketball game, fans on Twitter have expressed their anger.
