Chris Brown never shies away from controversy. But, on Monday night, he did something that was pretty damn crazy, even by his standards. After catching flak all day long for allegedly getting into a fistfight with Frank Ocean on Sunday night outside of the Westlake Studio in Los Angeles, Breezy took to his Instagram account to post a picture in order to illustrate how he was feeling. And, that picture just so happened to feature three crosses and seemed to imply that he was feeling like he’d been “crucified.”

As you’d probably expect, that didn’t really sit well with many people out there. They immediately called him out for comparing himself to Jesus Christ and continued to bash him for his role in the Frank Ocean fight. However, it should be noted that Chris Brown isn’t the first artist out there to cause some controversy by making a reference to religion. Far from it, actually. Over the course of the last decade, there have been more than a few artists who have done the same exact thing. To prove it, we went ahead and put together a list of 10 Artists Who Have Caused Religious Controversies In Recent History. From Nicki Minaj to Kanye West, there have been plenty of famous folks who have done the same thing Chris Brown just did. Prepare to be offended.
