Chris Brown -- Ebola Tweet Apology NOT Accepted by Fans ... Mostly

Chris Brown is not a doctor -- he doesn't even play one on TV -- and he's now learned to keep his mouth shut when it comes to important medical issues like the Ebola crisis. 

If you missed it ... Chris tweeted this gem to his 13.7 million followers Monday morning: "I don't know ... but I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S**t is getting crazy bruh." 

The immediate and furious backlash included ... "You're not a smart person ... at all," and "You believe this based on what evidence? Oh yeah, none" -- and "Why morons gotta be famous?"

CB conceded defeat after just 3 minutes by tweeting, "Let me shut my black ass up!" But the angry responses kept coming.

Here's the thing -- was Chris hinting that governments are targeting Black people with Ebola? Or was he just trying to sound smart and it backfired? In fairness to Breezy, more than a few people agreed with him. So, he's either crazy or just brave enough to say what lots of people are thinking.
