Chris Brown "Apologizes" for Gay Slur

Chris Brown "Apologizes" for Gay Slur

He used Twitter to address his rant.

Published June 22, 2011

Bad boy Chris Brown does it again. TMZ reports that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is lashing out about the homophobic remark that he made to photographers yesterday in Los Angeles. The HRC says that Brown’s anti-gay language is intolerable.

"Invoking words meant to demean gay Americans is just plain unacceptable. Chris Brown should know better," a representative told TMZ. The rep adds, "He irresponsibly neglected to recognize the impact of his words and the unacceptable message that it sends to couple the word gay with negative actions."

TMZ previously reported that Brown ended up dodging an expensive parking ticket yesterday by sweet talking an officer. Prior to putting on the charm, Brown accused several photographers of tipping off parking enforcement to his illegally parked car, saying, "Y'all n**gas is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? y’all n**gas is gay!"

A few hours later TMZ reported that Brown posted on Twitter, “I have total respect for gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone.” Really? Back in December, the singer got into a Twitter feud with ex-B2K member Raz B. He called Raz a "homo" and a "d**k in da booty ass lil boy." He apologized to his fans days later. Will they forgive him this time? Stay tuned.
