Chris Brown is walking back his comments after unleashing a verbal attack against pianist Robert Glasper at the Grammys on Sunday.

Brown vented his rage on social media after losing the Best R&B Album award to Glasper, who won for his album “Black Radio III.”

“YALL PLAYING WHO DA FUCK IS THIS?” Brown wrote on top of a screenshot declaring Glasper the winner. “I’MA KEEP KICKING Y’ALL ASS RESPECTFULLY” Brown wrote to his Instagram story. He then used white letters against a black background to write, “WHO THE FUCK IS ROBERT GLASPER?” according to People.


Brown continued throwing a temper, suggesting that he might “start playing the harmonica” and adding a photo of himself playing the instrument. The flurry of posts also included a caption with the words, “NEW LEVEL UNLOCKED!” and “HARMONICA BREEZY,” according to People. “Breezy” is the title of the album that netted Brown his nomination.

Brown, who has faced his fair share of criticism in the past, drew negative attention with the outburst. He retracted his comments late Monday morning with yet another social media post.

“Congratulations my brother… I would like to apologize if you took offense to my reaction at the Grammys..You were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean,” Brown wrote, according to People.

“After doing my research I actually think your [sic] amazing,” he added. (RELATED:REPORT: Backstage Brawl Broke Out At The Grammys)

Brown then shifted the blame and offered an olive branch to Glasper.

“THE ORGANIZATION ISNT DOING US BLACKS OUR DUE DILIGENCE. YOU AND I SHOULD never be in the same category.. two totally different vibes and genres,” he wrote. “So from one black man to another. CONGRATULATIONS.. HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO FEED YOUR FAMILY FOR LIFE. God bless my G.”

Other nominees for Best R&B Album included PJ Morton (for “Watch the Sun”), Mary J. Blige (for “Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe)”), and Lucky Daye (for “Candydrip”), according to People.
