Chris Brown Shuts Down Instagram Account

Singer quits social media site yet again after brawl with Frank Ocean.

Instagram that…no.

Chris Brown seems to have had yet another social media meltdown of sorts, shutting down his Instagram account after his much-reported brawl with Frank Ocean.

His @f--kyopictures Instagram page, recently home to some intimate pics of the singer with Rihanna, has come up blank since Sunday (Jan. 27), when news of his run-in with Ocean in L.A. broke. Earlier in the day, he posted a pic of Jesus being crucified, saying he was "painting the way I feel." Then he posted pictures containing the following messages: "Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world...Elevate yourself above the negative and if it doesn't work, move on! I respect myself enough as well as my fans to wanna be great!"

Brown's Twitter page is still active, though it's "ran by the team," he explained. His team has apparently been slacking however, as his Twitter feed hasn't been updated since Jan. 25, before the fight.

This isn't Brown's first online tantrum. Back in November, Brown deleted his Twitter after having a vulgar online argument with comedian Jenny Johnson. He did the same in 2009 after telling the music industry to "kiss my a---."

Isn't it ironic how smartphones can lead to so much not-smart behavior? is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
