If you follow Maxwell on Instagram than you know he loves to travel and enjoys sharing pictures of the beautiful women he encounters.
This definitely sounds innocent, but a recent a post of the R&B crooner with Lithuanian beauty Deimante Guobyte caused major backlash from his fans, many of whom questioned why he never shows love to Black women on his profile.
After reading the negative comments, the singer snapped back at naysayers, defending the blonde-haired, blue-eyed model and telling his racist “fans” to “go f**k yourself.”
“Sick of some of you chiming in on my friends and innsulting them with racists comments,” he wrote (typos and all). “You know nothing you assume everything and you should know better and worship is for GOD not me so sit down”
He added, “I don’t give a f**k, I’m putting ever[y] type [of] girl in my Instagram go f**k yourself if you’re a racist a**hole!!!!”
On the next set of pictures Maxwell posted, he used the hashtags #happyloveeverybodyday and #noracismallowed.
