Chris Brown Quits Instagram

Chris Brown is done with social media.

After taking a brief hiatus from Twitter last November following his feud with comedian Jenny Johnson, the notorious R&B singer found himself once again wanting to escape from the virtual world. He shut down his Instagram account Tuesday night (Jan. 29), but not before posting a message to his 2 million followers. He thanked his loyal fans, dubbed Team Breezy, for all of their support, adding, “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.”

Chris’ departure from Instagram follows his latest string of negative press.

Over the weekend, Chris was reportedly involved in a fight with Grammy nominee Frank Ocean causing Frank to suffer a cut to his hand. Recent pics of Chris also show him wearing a cast on his hand. The Los Angeles County Sheriff reported that Frank Ocean is looking to press charges against the “Dont Judge Me” singer, who is willing to cooperate with police. — Terry Carter
