While leaving a nightclub in Cannes over the weekend, Brown is reported to have commented on a question relating to Ocean, saying simply: "man, no homo."
Then Brown tried to clear things up on Twitter, insisting he wasn't trying to offend Ocean. He wrote, "My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS."
Brown has a history of making homophobic comments. In 2010 he posted angry tweets about rapper RAZ, calling him a "D*ck in da a*s lil boy," "homothug" and a user of a "buttplug." This was in response to RAZ commenting on Brown's behavior with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
After sending a few more homophobia-related tweets, Brown did wind up apologizing to gay fans and insisted that he wasn't homophobic.
Maybe Brown should simply stop voicing his opinion on Twitter.
