Justin Bieber is out defending Chris Brown.
The “Sorry” singer took to Instagram to compare Brown to Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur.
“Everyone wants to wait til people die to give them the credit they deserve. I’m calling it now when CB [Chris Brown] passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time,” the Biebs wrote.
“Trust me,” he added. “The people who have overlooked this man’s talent because of a mistake he made.. you need to reevaluate! Love you.”

Brown has a history of domestic violence, including being arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rhianna.
Comments on Bieber’s post were mixed, with some supporting his statement, like J Balvin, Nick Cannon, Sean Kingston and Marlon Wayans, where others condemned the words.
