Amid the scandal, the rapper (and Kim Kardashian‘s 2003 sex tape partner) posted a video about Brown via Instagram. “I’m real upset about today. … I’m not happy with how things are handled and how people can take a false story and blow it up into something way more than what it should be. We got, just positive people around, and you look outside and it’s like a war zone for no reason, for something some stranger said about something that don’t got nothing to do with nothing. And to react like that, so fast without really knowing the facts … It’s just not right. It shouldn’t be like this,” he said. “I support the homie Chris [Brown] and I support the whole movement. … This sh-t gotta change.
