Justin Bieber has been slammed on social media for praising Chris Brown amid his recent rape allegations.
Bieber took to Instagram to comment on one of Brown’s posts after police confirmed the singer had been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault in Paris, France.
Not mentioning the accusations in his comment, Bieber shared a clip of Brown dancing: “No one can touch you ur the GOAT (sic).”
People immediately noticed the remark and were quick to criticize the “Baby” hitmaker.
See some of the reaction below:
Bieber’s post comes after it was reported that Brown had been accused of sexually assaulting a 24-year-old woman in his Paris hotel room.
According to French tabloid publication Closer, the woman also alleges she was abused by Brown’s bodyguard and a friend of the performer.
The woman told police that she met Brown at a nightclub and he invited her back to his hotel room along with another woman. However, according to her testimony, when she arrived at the hotel, she ended up in a room alone with Brown where she claims she was raped.
