Chris Brown Apologizes For Homophobic Slur
Chris Brown is in once again the news for an outburst and an apology. The singer is very active on Twitter and that’s where he went to post his “I’m sorry” to the gay community for a homophobic slur he hurled at a cameramen in an LA parking lot.
Brown accused the shooters of letting meter maids know that Brown’s vehicle was parked illegally. Not that big of a deal, right? Wrong!
In footage posted by TMZ, Brown yelled, “Y’all n—as is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y’all n—as is gay.” After all that hollering, Brown was never even issued a ticket or a citation for the parking violation.
But the damage was already done. Those inflammatory statements caused an uproar with the The Human Rights Campaign, who spoke out against Brown. The organization told TMZ that the singer’s choice of words is “just plain unacceptable.”
A rep said, “Invoking words meant to demean gay Americans is just plain unacceptable. Chris Brown should know better. 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.”
Brown reacted via Twitter, where he tweeted: “I have total respect for Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it. #REALS**T”
