In an interview with Access, Brown said he "was most excited to meet" Spicer, explaining that he's "a big believer that if you can talk to someone and meet in the middle, you can learn about each other and help each other both grow."
That said, given Spicer's complicity and association with the Trump administration, fans were quick to criticize Brown's statement.

Get a fucking grip. There is no friendship with people who enable fascism.— roxane gay (@rgay) August 22, 2019
As a result, Brown deactivated his Twitter and logged off Instagram — that is, until today.
Earlier this afternoon, he took to his Instagram to post a video of himself lip-syncing to Maren Morris' "Girl" — a song that he called his "favorite/pick me up song."
"So...some of you may know I deleted my other social media pages and took a long break from posting on IG because I been in a bad state of mind," he wrote in the caption, before saying his family was "being threatened by strangers."
"People who I thought supported & loved me turned their backs on me," Brown continued, "Saying I was a traitor, a horrible person, delusional and treating me really bad."
That said, as he goes to his first rehearsal for Dancing With the Stars, Brown declared that there will be, "No More Tears and No More Holding My Head Low!"
"Taking a deep breath and reminding myself #EverythingsGonnaBeOkay," he concluded, before adding the hashtag, " #ImBack."
