CONTENT WARNING: The following article discusses sexual assault and abuse.
Earlier this week, Chvrches condemned previous collaborator Marshmello for releasing music with Chris Brown, noting the latter’s history of abuse and alleged assault. Now, Brown has fired back in a pretty brutal way.
Commenting on an unrelated photo posted by the Scottish band, Brown unleashed on them saying, “BUNCH OF LOSERS.”
“These are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients,” he wrote.
“Keep grovelling (sic) over your (sic) own insecurities and hatred. I’M BLACK AND PROUD. AND I KNOW IT HURTS THAT U GUYS ARE STRUGGLING WIT LIFE OR PEACE SO U ARE FORCED TO SEE MY SUCCESS. You aren’t even #2 (REMEMBER 2nd place only means YOU LOST FIRST! TA-TA. GOODDAY PEASANTS.”
Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry has also been receiving a slew of abuse on her social media, as well as the band’s pages. She shared some of the incredibly graphic and threatening abuse online.
In case you missed it, Chvrches released a statement criticising Marshmello for working with both Chris Brown and Tyga, who also has some allegations of predatory behaviour against his name.
“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. That is not something we can or will stand behind,” they said.
