Karrueche Tran posted a nearly nude photo of herself on Instagram recently that received the kinds of comments one might expect. One of those commenters was R&B singer and former Sister, Sister star Marques Houston.

"dizayum look at all that booty, can’t even see your face cuz that booty in the way," Houston wrote on Karrueche Tran's post.

Ex-boyfriend Chris Brown quickly chimed in. He kept his sense of humor (yes, he occasionally seems to have one) in check, writing, “Go Home Rodger!!”

This line referenced Houston's role as Tia and Tamera Mowry’s annoying neighbor Roger on Sister, Sister.

It wasn't long, however, before the comments took a rather sinister turn.

TMZ reports that an acquaintance of Chris Brown's made a death threat against Houston on Karrueche Tran's post.

It seems the commenter--who is reportedly a known gang member--posted emojis of two semi-automatic guns, warning Marques Houston to "show some respect."

Marques Houston didn't reply to the Instagram comment, but he later posted on Twitter about it.

Meanwhile nothing else has come from either Chris Brown or Karrueche Tran regarding the matter. The two have been apart since word of him fathering a child with a former model made news.

Karrueche Tran doesn't like drama. It's simply not her style. She has even avoided Chris Brown in public so as not to cause any.

It is likely she is mortified about her photo causing this kind of comment.

Do you think Chris Brown's acquaintance was serious? Will Karrueche Tran think twice before posting booty shots in Instagram again?
