Chris Brown is known to call out gossip sites for erroneous reporting and this time the singer has taken aim at TMZ. The singer is firing back at claims that he’s homophobic and purposely backed out of an appearance during the Atlanta Black Gay Pride Weekend.
On Monday, TMZ ran a headline that read “Chris Brown Settles Beef… Over Gay Pride Gig,” claiming that Brown didn’t perform at the September 7 event because the event promoters breached the contract by using the wrong photos on their posters, and that Brown’s camp has yet to return a $12,500 deposit.
Breezy denied the reports and told his side of the story in a lengthy Instagram post. “Yall gotta stop with this bulls***. I was never booked. Yall love to say I’m homophobic and s*** to have something to be mad at,” Brown began his post.
After expressing that he doesn’t care if the founder of the TMZ is a homosexual, Brown adds “I applaud you and a person of your caliber should be finding outlets for young gay men/teens and women to be more open and comfortable about coming out. Some of my friends have came out to me and I love them just the same.”
Brown continues that he’d rather see stories that were “focused on real issues.” He adds, “All these false stories to bring your site traffic is corny. But find another person to drag through the mud of lies. I know I’m talented but I’m not running for president any time soon so fall back wit all the nonsense.”
