Selena Gomez’s reaction to Chris Brown’s MTV VMA nomination is making waves on social media.

During the award show, Gomez won the award for Best Afrobeats for her feature on Rema’s “Calm Down,” while Chris Brown was nominated in the Best R&B category for his feature on Chlöe’s “How Does It Feel,” but lost to SZA’s “Shirt.”

As the nominees for Best R&B were announced, cameras captured Gomez scrunching her nose when Brown’s name was mentioned.

This moment has gone viral, with many speculating about the meaning behind her reaction. Chlöe Bailey, who collaborated with Chris Brown on the VMA-nominated track, has faced criticism from fans for working with him.

Chris Brown has a checkered past that includes admitting guilt to punching his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and being the target of several additional assault allegations.

When he was seen on camera gripping a female fan by the neck during an onstage act at one of his shows, Brown recently came under fire.
