R&B star Chris Brown is clearing the air on reports claiming he took a jab at past music rival Frank Ocean by using an anti-gay slur directed at him.
Breezy resorted to his Twitter page to publicly address the media gossip.
“My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ……… Love who u wanna love. It’s ur decision. People stop searching for BS.,” he tweeted Monday (July 30).
“Everyone is so quick to point the wrong fingers at each other! Ask urself… Am I Doing everything I can to help the world ????”
“The world is so bent on social acceptance that we’ve forgotten what makes us special… Our individuality! #Imdone #readabookb*tch” (Chris Brown’s Twitter)
Reports of Brown making a homophobic remark directed at Ocean surfaced online over the weekend.
While leaving Gotha nightclub in Cannes, Chris Brown had some choice words for a paparazzi who asked him about R&B Crooner Frank Ocean. While entering his vehicle Chris was asked about Frank Ocean, to which Brown responded “Man, no homo!”. The phrase “no homo” has been immortalized in hip hop culture meaning a rejection of anything that could be deemed as homosexual. Ocean recently informed his fans that he was gay which has since shook the Hip Hop community making Ocean and polarized figure. (PR Log)
Chris Breezy has reportedly had past instances of anti-gay moments.
This is not the first time that Chris Brown has been reported making homophobic remarks. Last June, after accusing a group of paparazzi of alerting police that his car was illegally parked, he supposedly said, “Y’all n****s is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y’all n****s is gay.” It should also be noted that Chris Brown and Frank Ocean had an unfriendly exchange on Twitter last year, which was followed by an unpleasant filmed interaction between Frank Ocean and Chris Brown’s cousins.
