Rihanna is in Barbados for Carnival, and on Monday she posted a photo to Instagram of herself sporting blue hair and a bejeweled bikini for the occasion. One of the people who commented on said photo? Chris Brown. The comment, posted from his official Instagram account, was simply the "googly eyes" emoji. Rihanna's Instagram followers went nuts, with many telling Brown to stay away from her given their history together, while others swooned about the possibility of the singers getting back together (E! reports that more than 4,000 people "liked" the comment in the first hour after it was posted).

And the comments weren't restricted to Instagram; quite a few Twitter users weighed in, too. (Sample tweet: "Whenever you're feeling hopeless and lost, just remember there are still people out there stanning for a Chris Brown & Rihanna relationship.") The Rihanna-Chris Brown story was already in no danger of dying even before Brown's comment: Sources told Hollywood Life last month that Brown still "keeps tabs" on his ex and her romantic life, and the gossip site has been wondering whether he's referring to her on a bunch of songs lately.
