Chris Brown took heat for controversial lyrics on his new album, Indigo. On the song “Need a Stack,” Brown sings, “Only wanna f— the Black b—-es with the nice hair.”

The lyrics caused an uproar on social media as some accused Brown of colorism. “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Tokyo Vanity commented on The Shade Room‘s Instagram post about the topic where she claimed that Brown does not find dark-skinned women attractive.

Brown responded to Vanity by trolling her and posting on his Instagram story that she was fine and he wanted to take her to dinner.

Vanity blasted Brown because she believed that he was taking a jab at her. She fired back at him and claimed that he was addicted to drugs.

“Stop playing with me,” she said. “B—-, that s— not funny. Second of all, b—-, I’m not even ya type. B—- you into things of light complexions, you know coke, heroin, molly, acid, embalming fluid, cigarettes … I’m just saying, Puerto Rican women, White women, Asian women. That’s all fine because that’s your preference and we all entitled to a preference. B—-, all I’m doing is calling it like I see it.”

Vanity also said that Brown would often ban dark-skinned women from his VIP section when he partied at nightclubs.

Social media users continued to denounce Brown after he followed Vanity’s statement by sharing an old photo of a dark-skinned woman in his VIP section. He also shared his “Brown Girl” song on his Instagram story with the word “Dummies” written across the image.
