Chris Brown has lashed out at Glasgow indie group Chvrches, saying "these are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients."

Brown's comments come after the band criticized EMD producer and former collaborator Marshmello last week for working with the controversial R&B star and Tyga on the song "Light It Up."

On Twitter, Chvrches wrote, "We are really upset, confused and disappointed by Marshmello's choice to work with Tyga and Chris Brown. We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behaviour. That is not something we can or will stand behind."

Over the weekend, Brown then left a comment on Chvrches' Instagram, Pitchfork reports, in which he wrote the following:

BUNCH OF LOSERS. these are the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients. Keep groveling over you own insecurities and hatred. IM BLACK AND PROUD. AND I KNOW ITS HURTS THAT U GUYS ARE STRUGGLING WIT LIFE OR PEACE SO U ARE FORCED TO SEE MY SUCCESS. You aren't even #2 (REMEMBER 2nd place only means YOU LOST FIRST! TA-TA. GOODDAY PEASANTS.

Brown's response follows that of Tyga, who previously replied, "Where all God's children. Everyone makes mistakes no ones perfect. Let's Keep the energy positive."

As of yet, Chvrches have not issued another statement, but frontwoman Lauren Mayberry posted screenshots of abusive direct messages she had received since the band's initial statement.

"Angry men on the internet can call me all the names they want. I still think domestic abuse is wrong," she wrote in a caption.
