CHVRCHES Forced To Increase Show Security Following Criticism of Chris Brown & Marshmello

Last week we reported an online dispute between CHVRCHES, Chris Brown, and Marshmello. CHVRCHES made it known that they did not think it was wise for Marshmello to collaborate with Chris Brown & Tyga.

Unless you just haven’t been paying attention Chris Brown has been under fire for several years now following his assault of Rihanna, and subsequent arrests for other domestic disputes. 

“We are really upset, confused and disappointed by Marshmello’s choice to work with Tyga and Chris Brown,” CHVRCHES wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

In typical Chris Brown fashion, the artist followed CHVRCHES statement with some now deleted comments of his own. Calling CHVRCHES the “type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients.”

Since that comment, and CHVRCHES public statement of disproval, lead singer Lauren Mayberry took to Twitter to announce they’ve had to increase security following threats from Chris Brown fans on social media. 

The posts don’t stop there either, people pretending to be actual humans, who are instead trash-balls have been sending Lauren messages like the ones below. 

It’s an interesting note to share that all of this is following a recent collaboration between CHVRCHES and Marshmello. In hindsight, it’s probably safe to say that CHVRCHES would have never created a single with Marshmello having known he was working on a song with Chris Brown. Whether you agree or disagree with what CHVRCHES is saying, there is no denying they have a very valid point. We need to stop putting domestic abusers on a platform for all to see.
