Chris Brown still hasn’t learned that Twitter isn’t his friend as yesterday he tweeted, “I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. Shit is getting crazy bruh.”
Brown quickly followed that tweet up with another one saying that he was going to shut up, but of course the damage was already done as many of his followers actually agreed with him.
Naturally, those trying to stop a worldwide Ebola epidemic from occurring were none too pleased with his comment.
Jane Moyo, a spokeswoman for British charity Action Aid, called him “thoughtless” and Red Cross spokesman Henry Makiwa accused Brown of putting people’s lives in danger.
Moyo, in a statement to WENN, said, “He has obviously ignored Twitter’s key rule: Think before you tweet. This is a global emergency about three countries struggling with a deadly disease, countries whose health systems are under immense strain. This is obviously nothing to do with population control but is a serious, deadly situation. At the moment we do not need thoughtless phrases which reach out to Chris Brown’s many followers and do not add understanding to the cause. … It was unfortunate that he said it in the first place.”
So did Chris Brown get the message? What do you think?
