It's no secret that when performing on stage, singers can get a little carried away when interacting with their fans.
It all began when Brown almost certainly destroyed a fan's phone after he took it out of her hand at his concert in Berlin on Wednesday (1 March).
He was giving the seemingly lucky fan a lapdance on stage, but instead of enjoying the moment as it was happening, she repeatedly tried to film it.
This obviously didn't go down well with the singer, who literally took matters into his own hands by taking the woman's phone and throwing it back into the crowd.
Clips of the incident were subsequently uploaded to TikTok, and people's reactions were divided, to say the least.
Blaming the woman for trying to record the incident, one viewer slammed: "It's clear she's a narcissist. Deserved this in my opinion."
A second agreed, writing: "She can't even enjoy the moment."
However, some people thought his actions were a step too far.
Slamming his actions on Twitter, another concert viewer wrote: "Sue him and end his career for property theft and damage to the phone. Also emotional and mental damage as well."
"She was probably calling the police being afraid of getting smacked around like he did Rihanna," added a second.
"I woulda been mad as hell being in the crowd and the phone bopped me in the head.. u know how bad that would hurt," speculated a third.
But if Brown's reaction on Instagram is anything to go by, he is completely unrepentant for his actions.
The rapper, 33, shared footage of himself performing wildly on his Instagram stories today (3 Mach) and described his actions as: "Treatment that my cool fans get."
However, as the comments above show, it looks like the incident could have done further damage to Brown's reputation because of his alleged history of domestic violence.
This is something that he also addressed on Instagram, claiming that white celebrities who had received similar accusations were not treated so harshly.
He wrote: "If yall still hate me for a mistake I made as a 17 year old please kiss my whole entire a**!' he began his latest set of posts.
"I'm f***ing 33! Im so tired of yall running wit this narrative .. You weird a** n****s are the same ones that tune in every week to see Blueface and Chrisean beat the f*** out each other in front the world [sic]."
