'LHHATL' Star Tokyo Vanity Calls Chris Brown Out Over Colorism
The controversy surrounding Chris Brown’s lyric on his record, "Need A Stack," has intensified. As previously reported, Brown raps on the track, "Only wanna f**k the black b*tches with the nice hair." The line has since sparked social media debates about debate good hair, bad hair, and colorism within the black community.
According to HotNewHipHop, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star, Tokyo Vanity made a comment on The Shade Room’s Instagram post about the topic, saying that people should not be surprised by Brown because he has shown in the past that he doesn’t care for dark-skinned women. She said that her "homegirl went to the club one night with her friends and his section rules was no darkskinned girls."
Brown caught wind of the comment, uploaded a photo of Tokyo to his Instagram Story, with text saying that she is fine and that he wanted to take her to dinner. Tokyo, however, took the post as shade and replied with a video. She said, "Stop playing with me. B*tch, that sh*t not funny. Second of all, b*tch, I'm not even ya type. B*tch you into things of light complexions, you know coke, heroin, molly, acid, embalming fluid, cigarettes...I'm just saying, Puerto Rican women, white women, Asian women. That's all fine because that's your preference and we all entitled to a preference. B*tch, all I'm doing is calling it like I see it."
She went on to add that Brown did not allow her friends into his section at clubs in Miami and Los Angeles because he told his security not to let any "darkies" in.
In another comment, Tokyo said, "Even though I'm blocked lmfao N***A it prolly took you 4 yrs to find a dark skinned girl in your section...you talking about one chick who you let in your section in Atlanta...I'm talking about THE RULES YOU HAD IN YOUR SECTION IN LA...My n***a I'm not bashing you cause I don't give a f**k about your preference because in life we all have preferences and are entitled to like what we like...but keep it 100% slime...Lmfaooo AT THE CLUB IN LA YOUR RULES WAS NO DARKSKINNED GIRLS AND YOUR SECURITY MADE SURE THE LET THE B*TCHES KNOW AND ENFORCES THAT...my home girl was there that night with her other friends, y'all let her friends in and stopped her and your security said no ‘darkies.’ Like a man stand on what you say and how you feel don't renege because you're being bashed that ain't gangsta.’"
Brown later shared a track that he did with reggae artist, Sean Paul, called, "Brown Girl," and wrote the word "Dummies" across the image.
Brown’s mom also chimed in, calling the back-and-forth over the lyric "ridiculous."
