Chris Brown recently posted proof that he had completed a year-long domestic violence course as part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna. But despite getting glowing reviews from the judge in his case, Brown proved this week that he can still get a bit hot under the collar when it comes to certain subjects.
According to reports, on Wednesday, the “Deuces” singer got charged up when former B2K singer Raz-B tweeted a comment critical of Brown. After posting a dozen messages declaring his admiration of Rihanna, he wrote of her ex, “I’m just sittin here thinking how can n—as like [Eric Benet] and [Chris Brown] disrespect women as intelligent as Halle Berry, Rihanna.”
Brown quickly shot back, tweeting, “N—a you want attention! Grow up n—a!!! Di– in da booty ass lil boy.”
The harsh comments were an apparent allusion to allegations Raz-B made — and later retracted — that B2K manager Brian Stokes had molested him. Several other homophobia-tinged responses followed, but, unlike in the past when Brown went into Internet silence after making heated statements, he vowed that this time he would not delete his Twitter account.
“I was minding my damn business and Peter pan decides to pop off!!!” Brown wrote. “I’m not mad though!!! I’m just not silent nor am i one of these scary R&B cats!!” In light of the harsh statements, Brown followed up by writing, “I’m not homophobic! He’s just disrespectful!!!”
Raz didn’t hold his fire, either, responding, “When I need tips on how to demolish my career I’ll call ya!!!!” He then following up with several more jabs at Brown’s career, which took a hit in the wake of the Rihanna assault. “I love how u resort 2 disrespectful low brow tactics when u clearly sabotaged ur own career by beating women.”
The ugly back-and-forth continued, with Brown assuring his gay fans that he loves them, saying that “this immature act is not targeted at you!!!!” Brown continued to try and change the tenor of the talk, posting early Thursday morning, “LOVE ALL MY SUPPORTERS and people who know my heart. HOMOPHOBE? c’mon, find a better tactic. that’s pure ignorance and stupidity. i love everyone.”
