Chris Brown

Chris Brown Shuts Down Instagram Account: Did the divisive rapper really shut down his Instagram account following criticism for his post comparing himself to Jesus Christ?

Verdict: True. Brown said of the matter, "Elevate yourself above the negative, and if it doesn’t work…move on! Respect myself and my fans enough to want to be great. But… social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I’m detaching myself from that world." With his Twitter account dead as well, we'll have to see how long Chris stays off social media... especially when he has a new album to promote.
