The Look At Me Now singer, who assaulted Rihanna back in 2009, posted a an icon of a pair of eyes after she shared an image of the skimpy costume she wore to the Crop Over Festival in her native Barbados that same day according to DailyMail.

Fans were infuriated when Chris Brown posted a comment on his former girlfriend Rihanna's Instagram page on Monday.

However fans were outraged that he would comment, posting: 'Can we all give a collective "BOIII WTF U THINKIN" to Chris Brown's comment on Rihanna's Insta????'

Another fan called him out by saying, '@chrisbrownofficial is now even MORE disgusting.' Another added: 'Keep your eyes and your hands to yourself sir.'

He was previously placed on probation after he attacked the Umbrella star, his then-girlfriend, before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Rihanna took a restraining order out against the singer after he was charged with assault after hitting her at a pre-show party.

The vicious attack, which led to her being hospitalised, led to him receiving five years of probation.

Speaking about the distressing incident, Rihanna later told Vanity Fair: 'I just never understood that, like how the victim gets punished over and over.

'It's in the past, and I don't want to say "Get over it," because it's a very serious thing that is still relevant; it's still real.

'A lot of women, a lot of young girls, are still going through it. A lot of young boys too. It's not a subject to sweep under the rug, so I can't just dismiss it like it wasn't anything, or I don't take it seriously.

'But, for me, and anyone who's been a victim of domestic abuse, nobody wants to even remember it. Nobody even wants to admit it. So to talk about it and say it once, much less 200 times, is like ... I have to be punished for it? It didn't sit well with me.'

Chris said in his 2017 documentary about the incident: 'I felt like a f***ing monster. I was thinking about suicide and everything else. I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating. I just was getting high.'

In 2012 Chris and Rihanna reconciled and dated briefly before splitting again the following year.
