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 ...

First off why are you pressing the issue so much ... Why aren't you guys telling us what he actually said ... ALOT of people use the word 'gay' in different ways, and of coarse you guys want to point your fingers at Chris Brown , Point your fingers out at everyone that uses the word gay .. You want to point out Chris Brown just so he can get bashed by more people and so they can bring up an event that happend 2years ago that has nothing to do with any of this. Chris Brown is moving up in the world and your mad .. Let him live his life, and unless your gonnah go around and find EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO HAS THROWN a ' GAY SLUR' Stop pointing your fingers .... And for you to say that wasnt an appoligy .. that is an appoligy . Just remember while you pointing your finger , someone else is judging you !

I believe Chris Brown had no menace intent in this statement. What he said is SLANG used in my neighborhood and others. It was not a homophobic slur at all! Previously, the word "Gay" meant funny, happy etc. This word was hijacked by your community and no is allowed to say it without retribution. The Gay community need to stop being so thin skinned and sensitive about a word that does just belong to our group.

Every time he gets in a jam or fight with someone he throws around gay slurs. Obviously he he does not think the gay community is equal to him. And all the little self hating girls will make excuses for every stupid offensive thing he says.

I don't really care for CB that much, but SERIOUSLY TMZ... get over the whole gay slur thing. I say to people all the time "you are gay" or I say "that was gay" .... its a common phrase that really has nothing to do with the gay community. I don't think CB said anything offensive and should not have to give any sort of apology to anyone.

MAYBE... You TMZ, should get the sand out of your VAGINAS and apologize for being drama queens... and for trying to make someone look bad for something undeserving... doesn't he have enough bad press already?

His racial slur was calling someone gay not a ****** but gay? Really now? Harvey personally doesn't like Chris Brown so, he targets him for any little thing for news. FAIL TMZ.

So if someone was to say the word "******" wasnt rasicist, but just a different meaning for ignorant is that any different? ******* idiots. The LGBT community deserves respect just as much as anybody else does.

@Jack He a singer, not a rapper.

Everyone knows Chris Brown hit Rihanna. That doesn't mean attack him every chance you get for one mistake he made two years ago that even she has forgiven him for and moved on from. Common since shows that he wasn't trying to offend the gay community. It's 2011, most people (whether we agree with homosexuality or not) are friendly with homosexuals. While it is in poor taste to use gay on this way, it is being blown completely out of proportion and taken out of context.

Does this guy EVER think before he speaks? He's been given a few hundred chances by now, so one has to think this is how he really is all day long.

I believe Chris Brown had no menace when he made that statement.
The word Gay does not strictly belong to one group of people. This actually has other meanings such as: funny, happy etc. It is really sad that the Gay community has hijacked this word and no other American is allowed to use it. The Gay community needs to stop being so thin skinned and sensitive when it relates to the usage of this word. Harvey stop looking for controversy in every statement made using this word.
