It had been a while since Tupac’s name has been mentioned and made headlines. At least that has been the case for 2019. That was until Justin Bieber compares Chris Brown to Tupac and Michael Jackson.
Previously Joyner Lucas suggested we trade Suge Knight for Tupac back in his new song Devil’s Work. Not to say Lucas reference to Tupac was out of line, disrespectful or disappointing.
Justin Bieber on the other hand, his Tupac Michael Jackson comparison, some might say is disrespectful. For Bieber’s fans disappointing.
Disappointed in Justin Bieber’s recent Instagram post where he expresses his love for Chris Brown. Justin Bieber says Tupac and Michael Jackson equals Chris Brown. Bieber captions the equation with the following, “Everyone wants to wait til people die To give them the credit they deserve. I’m calling it now when CB passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time. Trust me watch you will see. The people who have over looked this mans talent because of a mistake he made. You need to reevaluate! Love you.”

It is not known exactly what mistakes Bieber is referring to. One can only think about Chris Brown pleading guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna a few years ago. Or perhaps of Chris being arrested for rape charges in January 2019.
Regardless Bieber has recevived backlash from his fans. Many replied back to his message by stating things like, “this is super insensitive and disrespectful to the victims of abuse.” Many have gone as far as saying they have lost respect for Justin Bieber. Others were quick to point out that abuse isn’t a mistake. While others felt Chris Brown receives a pass because he is a celebrity.
Recently the band Chvrches called out DJ Marshmellow for working with Chris Brown. Chvches stated that, “We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables excuses, and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind.”
Perhaps this was one of the reasons that prompted Bieber to chime in on his thoughts about Chris Brown. Feeling the need to stand up for Chris. At the end that could have done more damage to Chris Brown and Bieber himself.
That sure didn’t stop some in the industry to cosign Bieber’s comparisons. Sean Kingston replied by saying, “big facts lil bro CB legendary.”
We’ll have to see how this plays out. Let us know in the comments if you agree as Justin Bieber Compares Chris Brown To Tupac & Michael Jackson?
