AceShowbiz - Justin Bieber didn't use his rights to remain silent wisely amid rape allegations against Chris Brown. The Canadian pop star is under fire after seemingly supporting the R&B star, who is currently under investigation for allegedly raping a woman in Paris.
On Tuesday, January 22, the "Yeah 3x" hitmaker posted a video of him practicing a choreographed dance on Instagram and wrote in the caption, "We Working." Justin, a longtime friend of Chris, commented on the clip, "No one can touch you ur the GOAT." His statement suggests that he believes Chris over the rape accuser.
Justin's support for Chris has got his fans confused. "The fact that you're supporting a rapist, a known abuser, makes me sick to my stomach. I looked up to you, and this is honestly so disappointing.... Please educate yourself on the topic," one wrote.
Another simply wrote, "JUSTIN NOOOOO." Another Instagram user slammed the 24-year-old singer, "Justin you missed the incredible opportunity to stay silent."
Justin is not the only celebrity who has shown his support for Chris, though. After Chris issued a denial to the allegations on Instagram, the likes of T.I. and The Game also weighed in on the allegations. "Stay solid and protect ya self King. Prayers UP," T.I. wrote.
The Game added, "Hold ya head baby bro #conspiracists." Ray J additionally showed his trust in Chris as he wrote, "We know fam!! Keep your head up and get back to America asap."
Chris was arrested with two other individuals, including one of Chris' bodyguards, on Tuesday in Paris on allegations of aggravated rape and drug violations. He was released without bail and is free to leave France. As of Wednesday night, he's still in France to film a music video. According to TMZ, he's committed to complete the project before he leaves on Thursday.
Insisting he's not guilty, the 29-year-old is going to sue the accuser, a 24-year-old model, for defamation. His lawyer in Paris, Raphael Chiche, said on Tuesday, "Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him. He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris."
