Chris Brown Is Bummed About His 'Plumbers Butt' In 'Famous' Vid

A million jaws the world over dropped upon viewing Kanye West's "Famous," and Chris Brown's easily could've been one of them before he found the whole shocking production to be a big, mortifying joke.

Shortly following the drop of the video—which features West, Brown and the wax reproductions of a handful of other celebrities lying in bed together totally naked—Brown posted this screengrab of the vid to his Instagram, taking umbrage with the positioning of his wax figure. "Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?" he wrote with a few laughing-crying emojis and a trophy thrown in for good measure. "This n---a KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy."

He followed that post up a few hours later with another one poking fun at the controversial clip: Here, the life-sized wax figures of Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian West and more are replaced by dolls, with Brown's butt getting the same placement as it did in the video.

It's weird (and uncomfortable, to say the least) that Brown has a sense of humor over a piece of art that links him to the woman he assaulted once again and a number of infamous celebrities, but everything about "Famous" is weird and uncomfortable. This whole thing is enough to make your brain feel like it was thrown into a washing machine on a heavy cycle, and something tells us that we won't hear the end of "Famous"-infused commentary anytime soon.
