‘Burn’ singer Usher continues to catch heat on social media after his fellow GRAMMY-winning hitmaker T-Pain took to press to reveal a critical encounter between them from the past.
The revelation sent Twitter into an uproar, with many demanding an apology from Ush for his reported mistreatment of the ‘Buy You a Drank’ singer-rapper.
As seen in the clip above (found on Netflix’s ‘This Is Pop’), T-Pain (born Faheem Najm) recounts an incident with Usher from 2013 where he alleges the now-42-year-old superstar heavily criticized him for using autotune – going as far as to say he ‘f*cked up music for real singers.’
“I didn’t understand. Usher was my friend… Did I f*ck up music?,” Najm reflects. “And that is the very moment—and I don’t think I realized this for a long time—that’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.”
It didn’t take long for the clip to gain steam on socials, leading a number of commenters to weigh in and offer their own criticisms to Usher (who – as of time reported – has not responded to the hoopla).

The hoopla surfaces just a week after T-Pain rode headlines for saying Nicki Minaj left him ‘heartbroken’ after turning down a collaboration request. Although she quickly apologized, Minaj admitted she did not remember the incident.
