Chris Brown Supports Gay Rights In Africa

Yeah, who would have thought?! After his spat with Frank Ocean last year and accusations that he used the homophobic slur towards Ocean, Breezy was the last person one would have expect to be rallying behind a course for gay rights. Well ... lo and behold, he is.

On Monday, the "Fine China" singer tweeted,

"Love is not a crime. Gay or straight. Love who u wanna love. Stop the hate & sign here," along with a link to an petition."
The petition is asking Cameroon's President Paul Biya and other politicians in the African country to accept United Nations recommendations to protect homosexuals due to a rise in anti-gay violence in the region.

The recommendations include preventing attacks and discrimination, ending the law that makes it a crime to be gay and freeing those who are currently incarcerated simply due to their sexual orientation.
Breezy previously supported gay rights and ethnic minorities with his single 'Don't Think They Know' earlier this year, which featured vocals from the late Aaliyah.
"The new single is a part of my "UNITY CAMPAIGN" which encourages all races, genders, sexes (everyone) gay or straight to love each other," he said at the time.

"As a young inspiration to all types of people around the world, I have a moral obligation to let go of grudges or bs."
- he said
This certainly came as a surprise but I am proud of Breezy for standing up for what's right. Let us hope this is not just a PR stunt to clean up his tarnished image.
