Chris Brown has fired back at the accusations of antisemitism he's been facing in recent days on his Instagram page. The drama began when Brown was spotted dancing to Kanye West's new song with Ty Dolla $ign, “Vultures,” in which he raps, “How I’m antisemitic? I just f*cked a Jewish b*tch.” He joined West on a trip to Dubai, last week.

Brown reportedly began with a since-deleted post on his Instagram Story, as caught by The Neighborhood Talk. He wrote: "LET ME MAKE THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR BEFORE YALL TRY TO USE ME AS A PAWN… IMA PIRU, I AINT MUSLIM OR JEWISH so don't start no sh*t wont be no sh*t!!! IM TRYING TO BE PEACEFUL BUT PLEASE DO NOT WAKE UP THE DEMON IN ME! GO ON ABOUT YOUR F*CKING DAY."
