Chris Brown Blows Off

Incident w/ Gang Member

'It's L.A. Man'

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown says he wasn't fazed by the self-proclaimed gang member who screamed at him outside a Hollywood nightclub this week ... telling TMZ that's just how things go in L.A.. 

We broke the story ... Brown was confronted by an N-bomb dropping loudmouth who claimed he was a member of the Crips -- as he was leaving Playhouse late Wednesday night. It's unclear why he was screaming at Brown, but he seemed to be making a veiled threat when he asked CB if his car was bulletproof.

Chris eventually drove away from the scene, but not before dropping a few F-bombs and N-bombs of his own.

But when we saw Brown leaving an L.A. art studio Friday afternoon ... we asked him what he was thinking during the incident, to which he replied, "It's L.A. brother."

He continued, "You just gotta keep your head down and keep walking."

Strong words from Brown, who doesn't exactly have a reputation for walking away from a conflict ... but maybe, just maybe, he's finally learning.

He's not "learning" anything, he's just ACTUALLY AFFRAID of the Crips.

I never thought that CB will fold like a bill when intimidated by real thugs. He is a eral thug when he is surrounded by his posse but didn't think that he can be super funny when shivering with fear.

He should be always be confronted in this manner so you can see his tail go between his leg and evaporate.

But you already ran this story last week and you said he yelled back and asked the crip if his body was bulletproof. I think TMZ makes up these bullchit stories in tandem with the celebrities, who get free exposure.

I am so sick and tired of people talking about Chris Brown, get a life. Did you stop talking to your dad when he hit your mom? Point is everybody has problems you are just lucky no one knows about your secrets. Leave them alone. TMZ is about to lose a fan, they are so one sided about this situation. What about all the other celebrities who have had domestic issues? Crickets.....exactly

Why complain if Chris Brown is in the media news .It's never good news .It's always controversy or dispute .In a year or two he won't even be main stream .His music will be (DRTV) infomercial with a few others .And Lil Wayne working the carnival . Let him go he will lose it his anger will show again

I guess it shows alot of ignorance on the parts of all this negative talk about this young man, you are no better than him for all this, stop judging people that you don't even know all you know is what you read and if you believe every thing you hear, then you have more problems than you seems to think Chris Brown has. And to wish this man dead is without words. Grow up people!!! No matter what this man does is a problem. Please leave this man alone and let him live his life. Because if you were judged for everything you did, I wonder how would you feel about it. Jesus forgave, maybe you need to learn how to and stop judging and critizing people all the time.
