And, tbh, same.

We're the first to admit, there are few things we love more in life than a brand spankin' new music video. Especially when said music video has a heap of impressive celebrity cameos. But one new music vid we're so NOT here for is the Chris Brown's new 'Freaky Friday' clip.

Brown's music vid (ft. Lil Dicky) has a fucktonne of celebrity cameos from people who, quite frankly, should know better.

In case you haven't seen it, the 'Freaky Friday' clip totally rips off Linday Lohan's noughties movie by the same name, showing Chris Brown/Lil Dicky swapping bodies with a heap of people after a waiter started chanting a random spell in an Asian restaurant. Which is already pretty cringe, right?

Then, as the clip goes on, Ed Sheeran, Kendall Jenner and DJ Khaled ALL make appearances, each pretending to be taken over by the disgraced musician.

Watch exactly what we're talking about here:

Aside from the end, where Lil Dicky is supposed to find himself in Kendall's body and proceeds to masturbate 'cos he's hot for her (very screwed up, we know), there's something even worse about this music clip: It's CHRIS FUCKING BROWN'S.

Y'know, the same guy who was found guilty of violently assaulting Rihanna back in 2009? Yeah, that fucker.

By agreeing to feature in his music video, Kendall, Ed and Khaled are actively promoting a convicted abuser's career.

And, for those of you who think 'it's just a music video', it's not. It's so much more than that. By collaborating with Brown, these celebrities imply that what he's done isn't actually that bad – a particularly dangerous and insensitive outlook on their part, especially when domestic violence is widespread, harmful and notoriously under-reported.

Especially because Kendall and Ed were also involved in the #TimesUp movement, which seeks justice for victims and aims to break the cycle of privileging perpetrators.

Naturally, Twitter went into uproar over the collaboration:

The music video comes just days after Snapchat released a painfully distasteful quiz asking fans whether they'd rather: slap Rihanna, or punch Chris Brown.

Not surprisingly, this led to an emotional response from Rihanna asking why TF the brand thought it was okay to make light of domestic violence?

"Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain't my fav app out there! But I'm just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I'd love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain't that dumb!," Rihanna wrote.

"You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn't about my personal feelings, cause I don't have much of them…but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven't made it out yet….you let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away."

Snapchat has since apologised for the extremely poor judgement call, saying the ad was "disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again."

All that's left now is to wait for Kendall, Ed and DJ Khaled to apologise too.

Better yet, how about they just don't do it in the first place though?! Ugh.

Here is where we'd normally link to the full music video but honestly, we don't wanna give 'em another view.
