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.

So all of you folks telling gay folks to stop whining because it's free speech? Really???

So you'll would be okay if Ryan Reynolds called a steward you black wench you all would be okay with that or the dreaded N word?

If Will Smith got mad an waiter and called him a stupid Mexican that would okay? Hey, it's free speech.

I think some of you ignorant young folk know exactly why Chris is wrong, so please stop defending him. And even if HE used N**** all the time, still don't make it right.

everyone needs to get over themselves. this PC bull**** is really starting to piss me off. i wonder how many gay folks really cares that he used the slur? probably not many. people say things they don't mean all the time. people say things to get REACTIONS, not to be discriminatory.
ps-and no one cares that he also called the reporters the N word?

pho·bi·a
   [foh-bee-uh] Show IPA
–noun
a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.


so calling him a homophobe is implying he fears gays..i think he is a coward..but if he beat up a female im sure he would have no fear in fighting some guy in make up.just sayin.so to call someone a homophobe just for saying the word gay is just funny.this is beginning to be a weekly thing on this site now.a gay group whining over someone saying the word gay or what ever.a group that wants everyone to be so tolerant of their LIFESTYLE CHOICE they sure as hell arent tolerant of other people.

I think from now on, anytime a male celebrity calls someone a "B1TCH", these Women's Rights Groups should demand he issue an apology and assure the public that he is not a male chauvist pig even though he just used a word that is often used to degrade women. And that whole, "I'm not sexist, some of my best friends are women" explanation should not be accepted. He should have to allow himself to be photographed hugging a bunch of women to prove that he doesn't hate women. And one more thing, from now on, women should be the only ones allowed to call each other b1tches, just like black people are the only ones allowed to call each other the N word and not be accused of hating all black people.

So then why isn't the term "Gay rights" unacceptable? It uses the word "gay"

Homos sure know how to turn a lot of people off. Just keep complaining about everything.

Apparently TMZ doesn't like the word gay but has no problem with the word ******S.
