Chris Brown: I Have Total Respect for the Gay Community

Chris Brown wears a shirt reading “Dance or Die” as he hangs out with a few friends on Tuesday (June 21) in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old entertainer got out of a ticket for an illegal parking job on Tuesday, but according to TMZ, Chris accused cameramen of ratting him out to officers, saying, “Y’all n—-s is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y’all n—-s is gay.”

Chris explained the statements on his Twitter, writing, “I have total respect for [the] Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it. #REALS—”

    I hear gay people use, “That’s gay” more than I have my straight friends. Does it make it right? No… but some take offense and some don’t.

  • http://muchmusic.com Joey

    Ya right! Since when? Oh, ya, he wants them to buy his music! The guy is a hypocrite!!

  • babyblues

    He’s such a deusch.

  • M.K

    He is his own worst enemy and why does he always surround himself with such goons/losers. He has no respect for the gay community. The environment he lives in is very homophobic and they always use gay in a derogatory way. When will he ever learn. I hope is just disapears.

  • Cant Be Tamed

    i don’t support gay people but …
    its not a big deal .
    i think if your gay and its something that you chose then you should be proud of it and not get pissed about it every time somebody shouts it out

  • M.K

    @Cant Be Tamed:
    F**K you.
    Something you choose.
    Be proud.
    What a F**king loser.
    You are too dump to probably understand it.

  • http://deleted Cant Be Tamed

    @M.K: we REALLY don’t know if he’s telling the truth or not but believe him or not don’t decide and go around saying hes a liar or honest( someone else )
    you really have no proof that its a lie so you don’t really have the right to say what you just said

  • livefeed

    Good, now you just need to respect woman.

  • BEAN

    Now i am no Chris fan but It is obvious he meant no offence to the gay community in the first place. Why they are being whiny whiners about it is beyond me. TMZ should be embarrassed too. Chris said “I have total respect for [the] Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it” — TMZ stated that Chris clearly used the word “gay” as an insult and quoted “my intention was not to insult anyone.”, purposely not putting the it. He meant it as an insult, there is no doubt about that but certainly not to anyone in the gay community so that is just BAD journalism. He has made mistakes in the past and he is definitely his worst enemy and is not helping himself – however the media, especially stupid sites like TMZ use any excuse to jump down his throat. Come on, there are more pressing celebrity issues lmao.

  • BEAN

    We hear “you’re so blonde” all the time implying you’re stupid and “you’re jewing me down” implying you’re cheap. Even the word ghetto is now associated with being black. Sorry but hey, gay community – get a grip on life will you.

  • no talent thug

    someone just make him stfu!

  • http://deleted Cant Be Tamed

    @M.K: wow how about some anger management you freak ??
    you are the one who’s stupid enough to not understand my point
    and to tell you the truth i will not even explain it to a rude person such as yourself

  • oka

  • tata

    Damn you people if they don’t like gays they don’t like gays. What happened to freedom to say what you want?

  • leona

  • mimi

    why are gay people so sensitive? seriously? Don’t make a big deal out of it.

  • passby

    Clearly – Chris does not mean it. I like his music and he is such a good dancer.

  • passby

    I like his music and he is an awesome dancer. Clearly, please don’t make a big deal because it’s not!

    If he has total respect for the gay community then maybe he has to be schooled on what is not so cool to say anymore! The joke is over, using that slur, your so gay, is way too common language and used by kids on the school grounds everyday, out of ignorance they use it without a care if their words are hurting anyone! No, I’m not gay, but when I hear that slur I cringe, it makes me ill! Because it is way too easy to not care about others feelings! How would he feel if we said, your so nigger? Should kids scream out that slur every time they are pissed off at peeps on the school grounds? I’m pretty sure they would be expelled if they said that! Come on peeps, it’s time to admit that the joke is over, words do hurt, think before u speak is what should be taught, not how to make excuses for hurtful words we say and sloffing them off with a lame apology….until next time he says it! EDUCATION!!! #equality4alliswhereitsat #spreadloveinsteadofhate #excusesarejustthatexcusesandmeannothing PS ( To the person who said, why are gay people so sensitive? You are the definition of ignorance, and it’s ignorance that hurts the most and does the most damage in this world! The sad part is, yu don’t even know that you spread ignorance! It’s just what you have been taught, time to put yourself in someone’s else’s shoes, maybe then you will feel the hurt words can spread! When that day comes I hope the ones around reactions aren’t to say, why are you so sensitive but instead help yu through your hurt! have a nice day!

  • joey

    im gay and i LOVE him.

  • Me

    The paps called the ticket lady to report his car, so they could get him getting a ticket on video. I dont know anyone who would be like “Oh, thank you so much for ratting me out and taping it”. Plus, he didnt mean gay as a slur. There are actual SLURS for that. Freedom of speech can’t apply to everything BUT things that could possibly relate or pertain to the gay community. WTH. You make people resent you if it seems like you whine all the time. If youre gay, just be gay and live your life. geez

    Besides, I’ve seen Sean Penn do WORSE things to paps..like KICK them and BREAK their cameras, so come on!

    Is no one bothered that the media in this country INCESSANTLY bullies a now 22 year old young man and has been doing it since he was a teenager?

  • MangerBouger

    This guy hates no one but he cannot fool his conscience.

  • http://oneshoulderdressx.net/ white one shoulder dress

    Lol! I’m sure he does!

  • Come On

    Chris the World just has an Issue with you. Cool out and give them Nothing to Report. O.K.

  • MAria

    ewww he is so vile – ever since he beat up his ex girlfirend how can anyone respect him? he is disgusting

  • LeLa

    Here we go again….

    i don’t support f-cking idiots but …
    its not a big deal .
    i think if your(sic) a f-cking idiot and its something that you chose then you should be proud of it and not get pissed about it every time somebody shouts it out

  • HowdyHo

    Why is this clown still relevant?! He respects the gay community? Bullsh-t. He doesn’t respect the gay community OR the black community OR the female community. He’s a self-loathing little twat who wants everyone to feel as miserable as he does. Kind, respectful people don’t throw around “gay” like it’s an insult. They also don’t use the N-word or beat their girlfriends. SIT DOWN, Chris Brown.

  • superfly

    STILL WANT HIS DCIK!!

  • nkenk

    people use the term gay like they use retarded and all other insults. if you’re going to call him out for using the word gay then you might as well call out the whole world for using other terms that once had negative connotations to them .

  • TR

    @Cant Be Tamed:

    No one choose to be gay, like you didn’t choose to be straight… you just feel attracted by the other sex.

  • Mikado

    Oh? Okay……

    But he has no respect for woman, because he beats them up and bites them!!?

    Thus, he must be gay.

  • Mikado

    By the way , I do not mind gay people either.
    But that agressive boy should shut his mouth, for all reasons mentionned above.

  • Frida

    When you use the word ‘gay’ – and yes, ‘retard’ as well – in a negative way and as a slur then it IS offensive! This is not about gays being sensitive, it’s about it being wrong that people are associating being gay with something bad.

  • Sera

    @wow:

    If he has the freedom of speech to say things like that, the ones offended have freedom of speech to say they are offended. It works both ways.

  • Lurker

    This big Pig Chris has big mitts on him and they must have really hurt when he smashed his so called g/f Rhi the singer and smashed open her lip where it required an outlandish number of stitches. Two black eyes blood flying from one end of the car to the other and the woman beater said later i learned my lesson….Hmmmm BullShjitt!!!!! Chris WILL beat up another woman/girl/whatever Again..They ALL do.
    He doesn’t have the FANS he did before he beat the living helll out of RhiAnna. That looks good on him.
    So what he likes gays ???!! He should..they might bring in a few more fans for him. He’s gonna need some gays even tho he talks about them behind their back… Chris Love Chris and That’s IT!!!!!

  • Skys

    Why are gay people in America so easily offended? Get a backbone and some thick skin. It took a few decades for us to accept black people in america, understand it is going to take the same amount of time or longer for everyone to accept you. This is America, land of the free, home of the brave, we need to stop criminalizing folk for their feeling the way they do about gay people.

  • Suzy Q

    punk – nothing but….

  • sowhat1369

    of course he has total respect for the gay community because he’s gay himself. he and justin bieber just released a music video but it’s only a matter of time before the sex tape is released too.
