“STAY AWAY FROM HER.”
Chris Brown stirred up some controversy on Twitter yesterday, when he tweeted that he wants to go on “a crazy world tour” with some big-name acts — including Rihanna.
Now, in case you didn’t know: Rihanna and Chris Brown used to date.

In Feb. 2009, he assaulted her, just hours before they were supposed to go to the Grammy Awards together.

Rihanna was taken to the hospital after the attack, and the photos of her injuries went viral. The pair broke up soon after.

Anyway. Now Chris Brown is tweeting that he wants to go on tour with her.
Or at least collect 10% of her profits.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, people had some thoughts on this.
(Rihanna’s birth name is Robyn Fenty.)
Lots of people were angry to hear Rihanna’s name coming out of his mouth.
Others felt like Brown wasn’t qualified to join the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars onstage.
Some folks thought Brown’s tour idea was actually pretty good — if they could just get rid of him.
Despite the backlash, some people have come to Brown’s defense — saying that because Rihanna has publicly forgiven him, it’s time for the rest of the world to move on, too.
But others are just not having it.
