This week, lots of celebrities, especially from the hip-hop community, have been defending and showing support for 21 Savage’s recent arrest by U.S. Immigration.
Migos member Offset has shown support for the “A Lot” rapper ever since news broke that 21 Savage could possibly be facing deportation.
On Monday, R&B singer Chris Brown shared a video of 21 Savage on Instagram rapping with a British accent. Brown’s caption for the video stated, “CMON FAM, STOP PLAYING WIT DA MANS DEM.”
It is unclear whether or not Brown was showing support for 21 Savage, or making fun of the rapper, but Offset seemed to believe that Brown was doing the latter. Yesterday, Offset commented on Brown’s post by calling him “lame” and saying that the memes aren’t funny.
Brown replied back to the “Walk It Talk It” rapper five hours later, insinuating that he’s old, and that Offset is sensitive. Brown also told Offset to “pull up” on him. Offset later responded to Brown indirectly in an Instagram story that The Shade Room captured. He referred to the “Loyal” singer as a “coke head,” and stated that Brown didn’t want any smoke, meaning that he didn’t want any confrontation with the rapper.
