Rihanna fans are furious with Chris Brown's comment on her Instagram

Every so often - let's blame Mercury retrograde - your creepy ex will pop up to remind you that you really need to block them on social media. Last week, the culprit was Chris Brown, who let us know that he's still stalking Rihanna almost a decade after he assaulted her on the eve of the 2009 Grammys.

While the two briefly reconciled after the altercation, and collaborated on two singles in 2012, they have not been seen together since 2013, much to the relief of the Rihanna's fans, and domestic abuse survivors everywhere.

So when Brown proceeded to leave "flushed" reactions on Instagram posts of Rihanna posing in Savage x Fenty lingerie - in anticipation of the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales - her followers were, of course, indignant.

Over the Thanksgiving break, Rihanna posted a slew of sultry lingerie photos of herself, and Brown, her ex-boyfriend, couldn't resist commenting.

He posted several "flushed" emojis - which feature bugged out eyes.

This did not go down well with the singer's fans, given that it's nearly been 10 years since Brown pled guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend.

"Chris brown please leave Rihanna alone forever," one Twitter user commented, while another corroborated "The Navy anytime Chris Brown even think about Rihanna."

"@chrisbrown STAY AWAY FROM RIHANNA," a third asserted.

While the beauty mogul did not directly respond to Brown, she did post an Instagram Story featuring a Bible verse and affirmation, emphasising that "you do not have to go backwards", and yield "passively" to the "enemy", or whatever that temptation may be.

Rihanna has since been using her Instagram to comment on Trump's administration, in light of the move that allows U.S Border Control to spray tear gas into Mexico and harm asylum seekers and their children before they even cross the border.

"Terrorism," she captioned the picture.
