One user went as far as to proclaim, “It’s like she’s afraid of success.”

However, on the other end of the spectrum, it was noted that Chloe had actually “won,” as she had the opportunity to “go from fan to featured artist.”

Additional Chloe supporters questioned why she was getting backlash for working with Breezy when male artists like Drake and Young Thug were able to do the same thing without any repercussions.
Y’all mad at Chloe but where was this energy for drake or thug with no guidance & go crazy…. I’ll wait pic.twitter.com/zwTkLkIm03

It was also pointed out that, considering the outrage over Chris not being honored at the AMAs—on top of all the hype surrounding his recent tour and meet-and-greets—the online hate for Breezy just doesn’t seem to be transferring over to real life.

People also expressed how they were simply over all the backlash against Chris Brown. As one user put it, “Let that man live and let it go he’s still a talented BLACK man.”
