Chris Brown Still Has Eyes for Rihanna and the Internet is Not Here for It
Rihanna looked BOMB in her annual Crop Over Festival costume and the singer was definitely feeling herself because she posted a bunch of photos to her Instagram late last night. The Crop Over Festival, which happens annually in RiRi’s homeland of Barbados, was treated to a very incredible look this year. To be honest, Rihanna slays every single time she goes, but this particular year had everyone shook.
The “Wild Thoughts” singer’s outfit featured a barely there bra covered in iridescent crystals with a thong to match, jeweled garters, colorful featured wings, and beautiful turquoise locks. Naturally, the comment section was filled with praise and admiration from Queen RiRi’s loyal fans — some of which included comments from her equally famous peers such as Nick Jonas, Taraji P. Henson, Chance the Rapper, Lorde, and Lili Reinhart, just to name a few.
However, there was one celebrity comment in particular that stood out like a sore thumb and, honestly, it was just too wild for the Internet to not notice. If you haven’t guessed by now who it was, we’ll tell you: It was Rihanna’s infamous ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, whose comment was simply the eyes emoji and the Internet was just not here for it:
In less than an hour, Breezy’s comment alone got 4,000 likes, along with people telling Chris to basically GTFO of Rihanna’s life. Comments like, “Leave her alone!” and “Stay away from her, I hate you,” flooded Ri’s comment section. Someone even went as far as to bringing Drake into it by commenting, “@champagnepapi so you just gonna let Breezy comment on your girl’s pic like it’s all good?” But, the comment section of Rihanna’s photo wasn’t the only place where the Navy expressed their anger. Fans carried over their animosity to Twitter:
Chris Brown had the audacity to comment "?" under Rihanna's picture. Imagine being that bold.

Chris Brown needs to leave Rihanna alone FOREVER.

Although a ton — and we do mean a TON — of people were dragging the “Look At Me Now” crooner for his comment, others remained unbothered by Breezy and just could not get over how incredible Rihanna looked at the festival. Ava Duvernay and entertainment site Jezebel tweeted their praises for the queen:
I don't think slay is appropriate. It ain't enough. Need a new word for this all-out forest fire of heat + flames.https://t.co/H8aCGphi16

Sure, Chris’ comment was the worst, but it was definitely overshadowed by RiRi’s look and all the praises she got for her amazing outfit.
