The rapper has taken himself off the picture sharing social network after much backlash for his recent Jesus painting photo
(WENN) - Chris Brown has reportedly shut down his profile on Instagram after coming under fire for comparing himself to Jesus.
The rapper appeared to comment on his alleged altercation with fellow singer Frank Ocean on Sunday by uploading a picture of a painting depicting Jesus on the cross, along with the caption, "Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!"
The move prompted a storm of criticism from his followers on the site, which links up to a user's account on Twitter, prompting Brown to reply, "Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world."
Users trying to access his account are now unable to view the page.
Brown previously shut down his Twitter account last November after a heated argument with a female comedy writer.
