Chris Brown isn't gonna take it anymore. The singer refuses to stay silent about the recent allegations of homophobia that have been hurled at him after he allegedly bailed on a scheduled appearance at Atlanta Pride. The event's organizer, Melissa Scott of Traxx Girls, claims Breezy was a no-show and implied that it was because there were a handful of gay men in the crowd.
Breezy, meanwhile, has consistently denied the allegations, saying that he was never booked for the event in the first place and that he has nothing but love for the LGBT community. Because assuming the worst of Chris Brown is just what people do, the story continued, with Scott claiming to be exploring legal options against the "Loyal" singer.
This morning, though, Brown decided that enough is enough, and publicly went after the source of these (and most all) rumors — gossip juggernaut TMZ. After the site posted a story alleging that Brown settled the dispute with the Atlanta Pride event organizers by agreeing to return the $12,500 retainer, he clapped back by reposting a screen grab of the TMZ story to Instagram with the following rant:
"Bulls**t. I was never booked. Yall love to say I'm homophobic and s**t to have something to be mad at," he begins. "I don't care that you are gay Harvey [Levin, founder and managing editor of TMZ]. I applaud you and a person of your caliber should be finding outlets for young gay men/teens and women to be more open and comfortable about coming out. Some of my friends have came out to me and I love them just the same. It would really be a blessing if u focused on real issues."
He continues, "But all these false stories to bring your site traffic is corny. But find another person to drag through the mud of lies. I know I'm talented but I'm not running for president any time soon so fall back wit all the nonsense."
Engaging in a feud with TMZ is like playing with a nuclear weapon, so we can't wait to see where this goes. But if what Breezy says is true, we applaud him for standing up to the haters. Guess time (and, possibly, leaked text messages) will reveal the truth.
