Lizzo has come under heavy fire on social media after she called Chris Brown “my favorite person in the whole f—ing world.”
In a video clip shared on social media, Lizzo can be seen posing for a photo with Brown, before giving him the compliment. “Can I get a picture with you because you’re my favorite person in the whole f—ing world,” she says.
The picture was taken backstage at the Millennium tour, which features a lineup of artists that include Ashanti, Soulja Boy and Omarion.
Fans online were unhappy and showed their disapproval in comments because of Brown’s history of abusive behavior against women.
“Lizzo calling Chris brown her favorite person in the whole f—ing world IM PISSED OFF MAN,” one wrote.
In June, Brown was accused of hitting a woman in a Los Angeles home. The Los Angeles Police Department started an investigation after the woman told police officers that Brown hit the back of her head very hard, but no injuries have been reported.
Brown has a long history of abusing woman. Last year, Brown settled a 2018 sexual assault lawsuit related to an alleged incident at his home from 2017. His ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran was granted a five-year restraining order against him in 2017.
In 2009, Brown was arrested and served probation after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna.
