For days, Offset and Chris Brown having been feuding online over Brown’s Instagram post about 21 Savage’s ICE arrest.
Earlier this week, Brown shared a meme on Instagram that seemingly mocked 21 Savage’s ICE trouble. The Atlanta-affiliated rapper was arrested Sunday for allegedly overstaying his visa, which expired in 2006. According to ICE, he is an “unlawfully present United Kingdom national.”
On Monday, Brown posted a video of 21 Savage rapping, but his vocals were replaced with those of English entertainer Big Shaq.
Apparently, the Migos rapper didn’t think it was funny. On Wednesday, he wrote, “Memes ain’t funny lame.”
His criticism set off a chain of online exchanges between the two artists. The “Undecided” singer challenged Offset to a fight, and his page is now full of pictures that poke fun at Offset’s appearance.
Offset responded to Brown’s jokes and threats in an Instagram story Thursday. He wrote, “Check my record and check yours only people you go toe to toe with is women,” which seemed to reference Brown’s history of domestic violence.
Minutes later, Brown shared screenshots of what he said were direct messages between him and Offset. In the stories, which have since been deleted, Brown tells Offset when he will be home to brawl.
While Offset said he doesn’t believe Brown really wants to duke it out, Brown just thinks the emcee is scared.
