AceShowbiz - There is a bit of backlash surrounding the release of Lil Dicky and Chris Brown's music video for "Freaky Friday", despite its positive responses. Kendall Jenner and Ed Sheeran, who make a surprise cameo in the hilarious clip, are slammed for working with Chris, who was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
"Girl please don't support an abuser," one Twitter user writes in response to the 22-year-old model's tweet about the visuals. Another tweets, "To add to the list of how problematic Kendall Jenner continues to be she's now featured [in] a music video of a song Chris Brown is involved in."

One other user wonders why some people don't mind the fact that Kendall is working with Chris. "People so shocked that Kendall Jenner said the word v****a that no one minds the fact that she starred in a Chris brown music vid ok," so the user says.

Some others, meanwhile, express their disappointment at Ed. "I'm kinda upset Ed Sheeran's on a Chris Brown song cause I hate supporting that a**hole abuser but I love supporting Ed," one fan writes, while another says, "Ed Sheeran working with Chris Brown how disappointing."

Another user writes in the micro-blogging site, adding a pouting face emoji, "So @edsheeran is on a song with Chris Brown. And in my opinion that currently makes him a d**k. I will not be getting involved with that song. I thought he had better judgement."

Neither Kendall, Ed nor Chris has responded to the backlash.
The music video for "Freaky Friday" was released on Thursday, March 15. In an interview with Billboard, Lil shared how he got Ed and Kendall to star in the clip. "Ed Sheeran is a friend of mine, so like I showed him [the video], and he thought it was funny, so good and he wanted to be a part of it," the rapper explained to the publication.
"The cherry on top was Kendall," he continued. "I waited on Kendall to the very end, and she killed it. We recorded it at Kris Jenner's house, and I literally went there and recorded her, and it was so fun. She was having so much fun."
