Chris Brown got into a low-down (and down-low) war of words with former B2K singer Raz-B, who has accused his former manager (and cousin) of molesting him back with the group was causing mayhem like this.
Raz-B (pictured at front of group) started it up by wondering aloud—on Twitter—how men like Brown can dare to "disrespect women as Intelligent as @Rihanna."
Why he decided to bring this up now is anyone's guess, but Brown didn't appreciate it, and he went there fast, tweeting that Raz-B was a "Dick in da booty ass lil boy" and noting that all the attention for Raz-B meant he "shouldve did this first instead of telling the world you got raped."
Brown later claimed it wasn't homophobic to say these things and that he loves all his supporters.
Raz-B was the instigator and Brown's vicious attacks regarding Raz-B's career are certainly fair game in a war of words, but demeaning Raz-B for having been abused and using those words makes it pretty clear where he stands on homosexuality. If I mocked Chris Brown's attack on Rihanna by making it about his race, that would be racist even if he deserved the criticism for the abuse itself. The same goes for attacking Raz-in this way.
For his part, Raz-B went on to accuse Brown of secretly being gay and having an affair with Andre Merritt among other "BoyFriends." Oh, and it all ended with a death threat. So there are plenty of dirty hands here!
Sidenote: I once ate a meal with and interviewed B2K at the Hooters just off Times Square in Manhattan. I thought it was ridiculous that a press op would be held at such a sleazy locale for a then-underage boy band, but the members all claimed they liked it for the onion rings.
