Officials at a human rights group have taken aim at R&B star Chris Brown after he was caught using a homophobic slur on video as he tried to talk his way out of a parking ticket.
The Kiss Kiss singer avoided a citation after illegally parking his car in Los Angeles but he's now in big trouble after calling the snappers he accused of alerting the authorities "Gay".
After learning his car was about to be ticketed, Brown left a building and told the paparazzi, "Y'all n**gas is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y'all n**gas is gay!"
But the banter has upset officials at the Human Rights Campaign, who have called Brown's choice of language "just plain unacceptable".
A spokesman for the group tells Tmz.com, "Invoking words meant to demean gay Americans is just plain unacceptable. Chris Brown should know better.
"He irresponsibly neglected to recognise the impact of his words and the unacceptable message that it sends to couple the word gay with negative actions."
