Chris Brown Arrested for Felony Assault; Allegedly Used Gay Slur

Chris Brown was arrested for felony assault this morning in D.C., and used a gay slur before punching the guy in the face, TMZ reports:

Chris_brownThe alleged victim tells TMZ ... he and a friend were hanging out at the W when they saw 2 woman about to take a picture with Brown.  The victim -- who says he's not a Chris Brown fan -- says he and his buddy photo bombed the 2 woman and Chris went nuts, punching him in the face and BREAKING HIS NOSE.  He went to the hospital and says he may need surgery as early as tomorrow. 

Law enforcement sources and the alleged victim tell TMZ ... before striking the man, Chris said, "I'm not into this gay s**t, I'm into boxing."  After Chris punched the man, the fight was taken to the ground.

Sources connected with Chris tell TMZ ... the alleged victim is full of BS.  He was NOT trying to take a pic with Chris ... he was trying to get on Chris' tour bus, and Brown was simply trying to stop a trespass.

If the charges are true, so much for that UNITY campaign:


TMZ adds:

The alleged victim tells TMZ he doesn't understand why Brown was "so homophobic" to hurl such a slur. And get this ... the victim says he would have accepted an apology at the scene, but now he will absolutely press charges -- and he's already hired a lawyer.

  2. Let's see, Lou Reed died this morning, and one of the first articles I see on Towleroad is about Chris Brown. spent his life respecting, documenting and putting into song the lives of gays and transsexuals, while the other one is a homophobe.

    Shame on you for your attempts in showing

  3. First Frank Ocean and now this, Chris Brown now has a pattern of assaulting gay men and gay bashing them while in the act of assaulting them. I hope this is deemed as a hate crime so hopefully he'll think twice the next time about assaulting gay men

  4. Chris saying "I'm not into that gay sh*t" is not homophobic. It's not even used is a sexual context. There was no meaning of anti-sodomy or a slur against gays as a people in the comment. We shouldn't try to politically connect every random "gay sh*t" or "that's so gay" comment into a meaningful slur against a community. Chris went off the handle, yeah, but it had nothing to do with a gay lifestyle or gay anal sex so we shouldn't demonize him as homophobic. Sorry the "victim" got punched, but he comes across as something of a grifter.

  7. @Larry, the problem is that there is no thought process.

  8. Will, why does Chris even bring up the word Gay? Everytime he assaults a man he say 2 words gay or f*g so why does he even go there? Why not just beat the guy up and call it a day. Why does Chris have to constantly inject gay or f*g into every male assault he commits.

  9. Is anyone surprised at this?? He's so predictable. He's an ignorant mess.

  10. An ignorant young black hip hop artist? That never happens. Never! Same with athletes. They're all so wise and respectable. (Lol)

  12. Hey Randall, if you had just scrolled down a bit to the article that PRECEDED this one you could kept your panties from getting bunched. ha

  13. @Critifur, my sentiments exactly. Armchair critics are the worst!

    Chris Brown is just begging to be locked up. Dude is one bad decision away from killing someone. Hope he gets some serious help.

  14. IDK, guys, for a lot of people "gay" is just a go-to insult that means "This is wack" and is not an attack on someone for being LITERALLY gay.

    Although, yes, using the term as an insult AT ALL is definitely homophobic bc it associates gayness with badness, wrongness.

  15. REDBALL that association is homophobic in and of itself.

  18. When he quits fighting his inner gay, the violence will stop...come on Chris, come out already...we're pretty mainstream fashionable right now. Probably beats Rhianna because she doesn't have a penis.

  19. @JAY, thank you for repeating exactly what i said and making it seem BRAND-NEW!

    Spot on. I know someone who acts like him, always angry and violent, playing a tough guy role, treating women like objects. Long story short, we met, became friends and one night he ended up crying in my arms, admitting he was bisexual and was attracted to me. In the end nothing good came out it, he sobered up and denied it ever happened. People like him and CB will continue to hurt others and themselves until they're ready to accept who they are.

  24. A younger co-worker referred to a policy he disliked with "that's so gay," then seeing the look I shot him, said he didn't mean anything offensive by it. I asked him how it could be anything but offensive when he only used that word to describe bad stuff ... and how would he feel if we all started using his name when we didn't like something: "That's so Joey!" He laughed but finally got it.

  25. I bet that's crack smoke billowing from his mouth in that dumb picture of him. What a phony. I hope he spends time in jail for the assault, because he needs to learn not to react to others with his hands... and big mouth.
