Following his alleged altercation with singer-songwriter Frank Ocean and his subsequent comparison of himself to Jesus Christ, Chris Brown has taken down his Instagram account.

According to the gossip site Hollywood Hiccups, Brown posted one final picture to his Instagram before removing it with the caption “Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I’m detaching myself from that world.”

Brown's page, which was under the handle @fuckyopictures, now gives a "Page Not Found" error message.

Brown's latest turn in the media began when he reportedly got into a fight with Ocean over a parking space in Hollywood on January 27. The two have disagreed publicly about what happened that night, but sources say that at least six people were involved in a brawl that left Ocean injured.

Following the fight, Ocean said he wants to press charges against Brown. It was that comment that seems to have led to Brown posting the following photo on his Instagram, with the caption "Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!":

Despite his renunciation of all things social media, Brown's Twitter account remains up.

Stay strong, Chris Brown. Stay strong.
