Chris Brown Anti-Gay Felony Assault Charges Reduced to Misdemeanor

Chris Brown's felony assault charges have been reduced to a simple misdemeanor.

BrownBrown was charged with felony assault after allegedly punching a man who photobombed a picture he was taking with a female fan. Brown reportedly told the man "I'm not down with that gay s–t" before assaulting him.

CNN reports:

The charges against singer Chris Brown and his bodyguard stemming from a weekend fight were reduced to simple assault misdemeanors Monday.

The two men, who had spent the previous 36 hours in a Washington jail, entered a packed courtroom in leg irons and handcuffs, but at the end they were unshackled and released without bail Monday afternoon.

Brown, 24, was ordered to report to his California probation officer within 48 hours and to stay at least 100 yards away from the man he is accused of assaulting early Sunday. Both men must return to court on November 24.

    Why do they keep letting this guy off the hook? Again and again, over and over – he’s a celebrity, he’s “Chris Brown” and we really can’t make an example out of such a fine homophobic idiot. I’m digested.

    No biggie! Have had this bloody TypePad switch a letter on me too, so I know that it is NOT necessarily your fault. It just happened at an EXCEEDINGLY bad spot . . .

    He’s not a rapper. He’s a pop singer who also dances. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Talk about “low IQs”…

    Chris Brown’s pathetic defenders in these comments apparently believe that if a stranger gets in your picture frame, the law allows you to gay-bash him. Wrong.

    No one was gay bashed wtf lol obviously he’s a lunatic for reacting the way he did and it’s a joke that after all of the violence, theft and drug use that has plagued his probation he hasn’t been sent to prison but let’s not make this into something it’s not

    Actually, Chris, honey, you are totally “down with that gay s–t”. The problem is you’re deep closet, deep DL and you can’t find the courage to admit it publicly.

    What’s worse than a thug? A celebrity thug with wads of money to pay off the justice system. That is seemingly what is going on here…..same with ALL celebrity criminals….a clear pattern. Corrupt judges are likely taking kickbacks.
