She uploaded a photo of herself with many stars. But the picture for which she receives a lot of criticism was the picture of her with Chris Brown.
Fans were disappointed because Chris Brown was involved in the assault case of Rihanna in 2009. Not only this he also alleged to have a history of violence against women.
Ailee defends herself for posting the picture with Chris Brown. She said: “Edit for the last time!! When I said he WAS one of the artists I enjoyed listening to growing up and that’s a fact that will never change. I meant the fact that I enjoyed his music when I was younger will never change.”
“I TOOK THIS PHOTO WITHOUT ANY KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT HE DID!!! the only thing on my mind was literally “oh wow. I used to love his songs!” I DO NOT and WILL NOT support women, men, pet, animal or any other kinds of abusers and the ONLY reason im keeping this post up is to CLARIFY the reason I took this pic in the first place,” she added.
Some fans understand her why she posted the picture but some of them criticize her after her reaction to the backlash.
