Jill Scott has sparked controversy by coming to Chris Brown’s defense and hailing the singer for being multi-talented.

Jill Scott found herself in a sticky situation today. She tweeted praising Chris Brown for his talent and calling him “amazing.”

On Sunday, April 21, the actress posted on X (formerly Twitter) applauding Chris Brown for his talent.

She wrote, “Chris Brown is amazing. How does anybody sing like that? Dance, look, act, and rap… like that, beyond gifted. It appears that exceptional people have to go through (fire emoji). There’s nothing to debate.

However, when a fan pointed out his past actions, including multiple allegations of abuse.

“I think the women he’s abused would disagree,” the fan said.

In response, Jill proceeded to tell a story about how her mother’s ex-husband used to be abusive but was also very good at what he did.

“I doubt it. My mother’s ex-husband was a mean, violent human, and he could lay foundation better than anybody,” Scott began.

The Philadelphia actress continued that she and her mother had eventually fled; her violent father’s skill did not go unrecognized despite the wounds he inflicted on them.

Her statements seemingly asserted that Brown’s purported victims shouldn’t be worried about his life right now.

“What he did with cement was awe-inspiring. We got away. He got a raise and praise for his ability. God dealt with the rest,” she continued. Look. Years of prayer, therapy, self-reflection, and making every effort to keep my feet on the ground have made me compassionate for other human beings.”

“People go through (poop emoji) and do terrible (poop emoji). We say we believe in God and pray for enlightenment. We are a living testimony,” Scott added.

Fans, however, appeared not to agree and reacted to Scott’s posts immediately.

“Absolutely not. If Chris’ abuse stopped at Rihanna, I would agree. However, that man is a habitual abuser, so he doesn’t get or deserve our grace,” someone wrote in response.

Another added, “Prayer is one thing; defending someone who has regularly shown a lack of accountability or care publicly for their abuse is another. He’s not a kid anymore. He’s been a grown-ass man for a long time. Why defending?”
