Chris Brown is shutting down claims he blocks some Black female fans from accessing his VIP section because of their skin tones.
The “Loyal” singer responded to the colorism accusations on Sunday with a TikTok video captured by The Neighborhood Talk. The video included a caption with Brown urging those criticizing him to “Stop It!”
The R&B singer posted his response after a group of Black women shared a now-viral TikTok video alleging they were denied entry into Brown’s VIP section at a club in London because of an alleged “No Black Girls” rule.

“We were supposed to go see Chris Brown. We got there and there were thousands of girls lining up there, like thousands of girls, and they’re not getting in. And we were supposed to be on the VIP guest list,” one woman said.
A second woman chimed in on the video, “They forgot to tell us no Black girls allowed. They were initially handpicking these white girls.”
The first woman then said, “They said ‘no Black girls allowed.'”
A third woman added, “I’m not lying, London you are shaking my life.”
A fourth woman said, “If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.”
Some of Brown’s supporters responded on social media by saying the singer had nothing to do with who was granted access to the VIP section and blamed the club’s promoters, if in fact the women were turned away.

Brown’s TikTok post included video of himself partying inside the club, surrounded by women and some of them were Black.
“STOP IT!” he captioned the footage. “I have Black queens all around me.”
Whatever happened, this isn’t the first time Brown has faced colorism complaints.
MadameNoire reported in 2021 that another woman posted a viral video on TikTok alleging she was denied entry into a Chris Brown event because of the singer’s alleged “no darkies” policy.
Other outlets have previously noted that Brown’s 2019 single “Need A Stack” included the lyrics: “Only wanna f–k the Black b–hes with the nice hair.”
The phrase suggested the singer was only interested in Black women of mixed heritage. Brown responded to the controversy with a profanity filled Instagram Story that can be viewed on XXL.
Brown is no stranger to controversy, and we don’t have time to list all of them.
The singer revealed in November 2022, that had been uninvited to perform at the American Music Awards. Brown broke the news to his fans with a video on Instagram of a rehearsal for the performance. “Would’ve been the AMA performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown,” he wrote.
An AMAs spokesperson later confirmed to Urban Hollywood 411 that the performance had indeed been scrapped at the last minute.
“Live shows change all the time, it’s the nature of this business; unfortunately, this element of the AMAs didn’t come together as we couldn’t align on the performance, to no fault of Chris Brown,” the spokesperson said.
