RnB Singer Chris Brown has tweeted in support of equality this week, supporting gay rights organisation allout.org and asking his fans to sign a
petition to protect LGBT people in Cameroon. The petition’s aim is to put more international pressure on the country to stop the rise of anti-gay violence.
Brown has an interesting past when it comes to gay rights. His single with the deceased Aaliyah, ‘Don’t Think They Know’, was dedicated to gay rights.
“The new single is apart of my ‘UNITY CAMPAIGN’ which encourages all races, genders, sexes, (everyone) gay or straight to love each other,” he wrote at the time.
However, it was reported earlier this year that he and several others attacked openly gay singer-songwriter Frank Ocean in a parking lot while spouting anti-gay rhetoric. He has also used homophobic slurs several times on Twitter.
