Brown’s fans expressed their anger over this issue
A Instagram user responded to this by commenting, , “I’m upset, the last time he performed at any awards show was at least 5 years ago. This man has paid his dues, earned our trust back and still manages to sell out concerts. How dare they not let him perform. He is carring R&B on his back. It’s like he cannot win. His talent is unmatched. Nobod is touching Chris. Yet, he has to work 3x harder than the Average to get barely half? Y’all playing on his top & I really don’t like it. I PROMISE THE PERFORMANCES ARE WACK NOWADAYS. Chris would’ve set the stage on fire as we ALL can see. Thank you Chris for not giving up when the music industry tried to write you off! YOU ARE A LEGEND.”The post has received almost one million “likes”.
