Chris Brown made headlines by charging fans $1,000 for a VIP meet-and-greet experience that includes a photo opportunity. The premium package, part of his tour promotions, provides fans with a chance to interact with the artist more personally, albeit at a steep price.

While some fans have criticized the high cost as excessive and exclusionary, others have embraced it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their favorite performer.

One photo, in particular, is making the rounds online. The image shows Brown and the fan touching fingers in a bizarre pose. The caption read: “Paying $1,000 to meet another man just to take a picture like this is crazy to me. But go off.”

Comments quickly flooded the post with one person writing, “If I’m paying $1000 for a picture, I’m definitely making him do some weird, out of the ordinary poses lol.” Snow Tha Product, however, thought there was nothing wrong with it. She added, “Chris really into it. That’s cool!” Dee-1 added, “go off!”

Most people celebrated the photo and criticized anyone poking fun at the fan. As one person said, “Caring about what another man spends his money on is the reason most of yall don’t get no money.”
