Gay Rights Group: Chris Brown's Slur Is 'Unacceptable'

6/22/2011 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Human Rights Campaign is lashing out at Chris Brown for the homophobic remark he made in L.A. yesterday -- telling TMZ, the singer's anti-gay language is "just plain unacceptable."

A rep for the HRC tells us, "Invoking words meant to demean gay Americans is just plain unacceptable. Chris Brown should know better."

The rep adds, "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."

As we previously reported, Brown accused several photogs of tipping off parking enforcement to his illegally parked car -- saying, "Y'all n**gas is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y'ALL N**GAS IS GAY!"

So far, no comment from Chris' camp.

Civil rights groups are a perfect example of why annoying people are referred to as gay.

America is turning into a bunch of pansy crybabies over calling people names. Didn't your mother tell you that sticks and stones can break your bones but names will never hurt? He also keeps saying "*****" but no one seems to care. Then again this is TMZ where the big boss is gay...

GET OVER IT ALREADY!! It's called free speech bitches! People will say all kinds of things, to all types of different people on a daily basis that we may not like. Even if the dude does appologize (which he will) it won't be sincere!

Ugh. I'm so sick of these dumb groups coming out in outrage every time some celebrity says ANYTHING and demanding an apology. Shut up and get a life people. You spend way too much time worrying about things people say about you.
Look... the term "gay" isn't always about homosexuals. You're adults. Quit pretending you don't know that. I don't like Chris Brown either but I'm not dumb enough to believe he was using the term as a hate slur. Idiots.

Chris Brown has pizzed off just about everyone from homosexuals to women to the media. If there is anyone who has not been pizzed off by Chris Brown, then give us a big smile and show us how many teeth you're missing.

Unfortunately for everyone who is offended - this is the US and we enjoy free speech. As far as any gay American - you can't go after ever individual who says something that is unacceptable. Brown is an equal opportunity offender, as you can see by this particular comment. However, pride, or gay pride, is not defined by what other people say or think about you. If is defined by you and how you present yourself and feel about yourself. NO ONE cares about what this guy says so move on. There is not one ethnic, religious or other group that hasn't been the subject of some bad humor or language at some point. Pride comes from ignoring it, and being amazing in spite of it. Not asking for apologies from people with foot in mouth issues.
