It doesn’t take long for a rumor to run rampant on social media.

Just ask Chris Young.

The country superstar recently experienced this firsthand when he released a video on his Instagram page showing himself and a mystery woman. The two seemingly flirt a tad with the camera while discussing their respective hairstyles. And while the video looks fairly harmless, it ended up getting Chris’ fans all riled up. Was the woman Chris’ new girlfriend? Was it his leading lady in the new video he is filming for the “Losing Sleep” single, which he tagged in the post? Was their obvious connection as hot as it looked? The  fan comments after the video was posted on August 15 went on and on and on, to the point that Chris could no longer stay silent.

Totally cut her off right there #handful #losingsleepvideo 😂

“Seeing a lot of weirdness in my comments, folks,” Chris wrote in a late night series of tweets on August 15. “I’m single. Not taken. But also none of anyone else’s business. I keep that to myself. I’ll say what I feel and people can like it or unfollow. Comment! … but sometimes a modicum of respect is expected … no? #silly.”

Chris seemed to get extra irritated when a so-called fan challenged his right to privacy, firing back, “Easy buddy … my work doesn’t hinge upon my single/taken status, thankfully.”
