Chris Brown decided that it was a good idea to dress up as a terrorist for Halloween.
The R&B star posted a photo on Instagram on Wednesday (Oct. 31) that showed himself wearing a turban and fake beard, with bullet casings wrapped around his robe and an assault rifle being brandished above his head. Four similarly-dressed friends flanked Breezy as he stood in front of a silver car.
The caption on the Instagram photo, which has collected 77,000 “Like’s” on Instagram and was also posted to Brown’s Twitter account, reads, “Ain’t nobody Fucking wit my clique!!!!#ohb,” a reference to the song “Clique” on the GOOD Music compilation “Cruel Summer.”
While Brown has already received criticism for the stunt online, his mother, Joyce Hawkins, defended the outfit on Twitter on Thursday morning. “HALLOWEEN IS FOR FUN NOTHING MORE THAN JUST FUN. GET A LIFE PLEASE,” she wrote.
In September, Brown unveiled a controversial neck tattoo that resembled the image of a bruised Rihanna, after she was beaten by then-boyfriend Brown in 2009. A rep for the singer said that the tattoo was actually of a sugar skull, associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead.
Brown’s Carpe Diem world tour, which supports his latest studio album “Fortune,” is set to kick off on Nov. 17 in Oslo.
