Chris Brown

I Didn't Mean

to Piss Off the Gays

6/22/2011 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown just lied through his teeth ... tweeting that he has "total respect for [the] Gay community" after dropping another gay slur in L.A. yesterday.

He never apologizes ... but instead writes a half-assed, dismissive explanation saying, "my intention was not to insult anyone."

Listen to the way he hurls the word around -- Chris clearly used the word "gay" as an insult ... no two ways around it.

Still, we still gotta ask ...

WHY DO YOU GUYS THINK THE WORD "GAY" IS AN INSULT?! PEOPLE ARE EVEN TALKING ABOUT HIS COME BACK LIKE YOU GAVE IT TO HIM IN THE 1ST PLACE.

OH HIS GAY SLUR WILL COST HIM HIS COMEBACK COS EVERYONE ON THE PLANET IS GAY? PLEASE=> REAL GAY PEOPLE KNOWS HE LOVES THEM ABSOLUTELY.

IS THE WORD GAY A SHAMEFUL SWEAR WORD?? WHY DO WE HAVE TO GIVE A COIN EACH TIME YOU MENTION THE WORD GAY?=> EXACTLY! ITS THE INTERPRETERS THAT HAVE A PROBLEM.

INFACT, AT A POINT IN HISTORY, THE WORD "GAY" MEANT HAPPINESS=> WHERE WAS HRC THEN?

AS FOR THESE JOBLESS CONFUSION HAPPY AUTHORS, QUIT TRYING TO HURT THIS BOY, ACCEPT IT! YOU'VE FAILED AND YOU WILL KEEP FAILING.

WHAT DOES HOMO-PHOBIC MEAN? YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR OWN KIND? IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? OR IS IT HOMOSEXUAL PHOBIC? PERHAPS THEY SHOULD TEACH THAT TO CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS.

NOW, THIS IS NOT A VIOLENT OUTBURST! BRINGING UP GMA AS IF ITS RELEVANT. SO WHAT EVEN IF IT WAS AN OUTBURST, => ITS HUMAN TO BE PISSED OFF! WE ALL DO.

UNLESS YOU GREW UP IN A ARISTOCRATIC HOME WHERE YOU ARE TRAINED FROM BIRTH BY YOUR PARENTS AND SCHOOLS TO SPEAK IN A CERTAIN WAY=> YOU WILL USE THE WORD "GAY", BITCH, *****, ETC AT ONE POINT.

ITS REALLY UP TO ANY JOBLESS FOOL TO BEGIN TO READ INTO IT AND CONNECTING IT TO OTHER ABSURD IRRELEVANT SITUATIONS AND TRYING TO START AN UNNECESSARY BLACKMAIL CAMPAIGN.

IT SEEMS LIKE TMZ IS ANGERED BECAUSE THEY COULD RUIN HIS COMEBACK=> TMZ AND THEY OTHER MORONS DROOLING AFTER THEM NEED ANGER MANAGEMENT AND DOMESTIC ABUSE LESSON TO STOP BULLYING CHRIS BROWN.

CHRIS BROWN IS JUST LIVING HIS LIFE, PERHAPS ALL THESE MEDIA PEOPLE SHOULD GET ONE TOO. BREEZY DONT NEED TO CHANGE TO PLEASE EVERYONE=> PEOPLE THAT MATTER ARE NOT OFFENDED=> HATERS DON'T COUNT; WHO CARES WHAT THEY THINK

I personally dislike Chris Brown but why does he have to apologize for what he says or feels. I am totally against any organization that wants to impose how we are supposed to feel about any given subject. Peta, Glad and other organizations like these are just big social bullies. If I want to wear leather that's my decision not someone else and the problem I have with gay people is that they want everyone to agree with what they are doing I don't condone the life style but at the same time don't give a **** what you do when they are intimate stop trying to make people like or accept what you do because that is your business not ours

TMZ hates Chris so anything he says or does that is out of line will be looked at through judgmental eyes. He shouldn't have said it but people use "gay" to describe things all the time. For example: That’s Gay and you’re so gay, is it wrong of course was he saying it as a slur no! TMZ knows that, he will never be forgiven. Dude is out of control and when he hurts himself, because that’s what’s next then TMZ will say he's looking for sympathy. He beat up Rihanna one time and he will never hit another female as long as he lives, I think he learned his lesson. Rihanna can forgive him but the world can’t and that will hunt him forever and all the stress from the media will crack him into pieces. Maybe he should sleep with then underage girl maybe then he might be forgiven.

He wasn't being homophobic, but I guess this is the sort of reaction that occurs in the USA because everyone over there is driven by fear, and jump at the mere opportunity to make a story and even sue over them.

Saying something is gay isn't being homophobic and most people have done this over the years. If one of your friends would be wearing ridiculous sneakers, you tell him his sneakers are 'gay'. It's just the way it is. It isn't harmful to any in the gay community, and the context in which Chris used the term wasn't harmful - but as I've said, with it being the USA, there's more than enough people looking for a quick payday or story, just because they can over there.

He didn't call someone a ***********. he used the term gay! Good grief! People use that term every day with the meaning being stupid/looking for attention!!! This is getting a bit carried away TMZ. I understand there are people out there that are homophobic, but you need to draw the line. You're way over stepping here with this one!

gay   
[gey] Show IPA
adjective, -er, -est, noun, adverb
–adjective
1.
having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music.
2.
bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments.
3.
given to or abounding in social or other pleasures: a gay social season.

Read the second definition and that's the way I feel Chris was using the term gay!! Everything isn't about being a homophobe!!! You're getting as bad as Perez!

No need to forgive someone for saying gay, or calling someone gay. Maybe those photogs were gay, maybe they weren't either way Chris Brown sucks, but freedom of speach protects everything he says. YOu don't like it? Don't buy his records.

I have heard so many people use the expression "That's so gay" and most are not thinking of gay people when they say it. It's very immature to use words and not take responsibility for saying them - but, no mean-spirited intent is usually there.

In my book, I'm not sure why Chris Brown wasn't written off a long time ago. Clearly needs a reality check and to look at the world around him...I hope that he continues to get constant backlash for things he does so that eventually, he just gives up and quits!
