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.

The guy is a s***bag who was never sorry for beating his girlfriend black and blue and yet people keep hiring him. He threw a tantrum and caused damage at a major network but they didn't bother calling the police. "Celebrities" if you want to call him that, live by a different set of rules, someone always covers for them and it's worse when they are black because their fans believe they can do no wrong.

I'm beginning to see Harvey Levin as a bully -

First this dude's blind-sided by the paps -

Then they serve up Chris Brown's exasperation/frustration -

...to an anti-gay group.

"Use of media to pummel chosen subjects."

Why is TMZ not upset that he used the "N" word.
That is just as unacceptable. If you have no probelm with the "N Word" then shut up about him saying gay,
both are just as offensive.
However this is how all young peopme talk. It is not news worthy.

Words can have more than one meaning the term gay can mean.

1 Happy or lively" lets have a gay ol' time=
2 Homosexual "Gay people wants the right to mary"
3 Bad or stupid " My car won't start, it's so gay.

It serves no purpose to complain every time the term is used in the third form. Learn to live with it.

this is a non story. completly nothing.

perhaps instead of the word "gay" we should substitute something else... "ya'll n***as is 'asparagus'." oh wait then we'd have to deal with the asparagus lobby and everybody knows you dont mess with them...

thanks for taking the heat off tracy!

Why is it okay for blacks to utter gay slurs but, god forbid, a white person or a gay white person utter the "N" word. The whole country then condemns the white person for racist remarks.

What negative actions are HRC talking about? Alerting cops about his car? I thought alerting cops to illegal activity, such as an illegally parked car, was a good thing? People need to obey the law!!

This PC crap is backfiring, the more this agenda is forced down my throat, the more I find myself thinking negatively about it.
