Chris Brown and Rihanna shocked the world when it was revealed that he would be featured on her 'Birthday Cake' remix. Predictably, fans went into a frenzy on Twitter. While Team Breezy was happy to hear of the collaboration, Rihanna's fans had much more mixed, polarized reactions. Some were happy to see the ex-couple reconcile (at least in song), while most were furious that she would let the man who assaulted her three years ago sing on one of her tracks.
For her part, Rihanna released a series of somewhat cryptic tweets once the news broke, some of which pointed at a renewed relationship with Brown, while others were defiant against critics of her decision. "Its all about mastering the skill of ignoring ignorance! #1LOVE," she wrote (she's previously referred to Brown as "#1LOVE"). Later she tweeted, "Chiefin' while ppl spend hrs on letters… *kanye shrug* #phuckit." Brown has yet to comment or tweet on the matter. In any case, the decision garnered strong reactions across the board. Here were some that stuck out to us in particular.
