Singer Chris Brown has always been a magnet for controversy. The R&B star is no stranger to the term bad boy, and since his infamous altercation with Rihanna, people have always kept him on a tight watch ready to cancel him at a moments notice. Over the years his preference in women has come under fire, with various sources coming forward to state that the singer is less than fond of dark skinned women. Several stories have broke over the years of instances where this has been on full display, with another woman recently coming forward to talk about her interaction with the “Go Crazy” star.
back in 2019 he caught some flack from a song lyric referencing darker women. The backlash was over his song lyric on the track “Need a Stack.” On the record, which features Lil Wayne and Joyner Lucas, Brown says “only wanna f–k the black b—hes with the nice hair.”
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Tokyo Vanity did not take kindly too the lyric. She commented underneath a post regarding the song and lyric in question explaining that Brown doesn’t find dark-skinned women attractive. Brown then jokingly responds by offering to take her out to dinner.
“Stop playing with me,” she said. “B—-, that s— not funny. Second of all, b—-, I’m not even ya type. B—- you into things of light complexions, you know coke, heroin, molly, acid, embalming fluid, cigarettes … I’m just saying, Puerto Rican women, White women, Asian women. That’s all fine because that’s your preference and we all entitled to a preference. B—-, all I’m doing is calling it like I see it.”
“AT THE CLUB IN LA YOUR RULES WAS NO DARKSKINNED GIRLS AND YOUR SECURITY MADE SURE THE LET THE B—HES KNOW AND ENFORCES THAT,” she wrote. “My homegirl was there that night with her other friends, y’all let her friends in and stopped her and your security said no ‘darkies.’ Like a man stand on what you say and how you feel don’t renege because you’re being bashed that’ain’t gangsta.”
Recently another woman came forward with an eerily similar story about being turned away from a club due to her skin tone. She specifically recalls him saying “no darkies” before asking her to leave.
People took to twitter to remind folks about his history of misogyny and colorism.
Is there a theme going on this week about exposing anti-blackness amongst black celebs? Pluto must be outta retrograde. First Tamron, then Andre, now this. ALLEGEDLY, Chris Brown had banned "dark butts" aka "dark-skinned girls" from this said party. Imma pray for Brother Brown. pic.twitter.com/t4T1oOHNWh— Shawn DeRay (@DeRay_Shawn) May 8, 2021
