Chris Brown and Frank Ocean have traded Twitter barbs before, and the former has been accused of making gay slurs in the past, so a report attributing one to Brown regarding Ocean coming out came as no surprise.
But it's not true, the singer says.
"My Opinion on the whole Frank Ocean subject is ......... Love who u wanna love. It's ur decision. People stop searching for BS," Brown tweeted Monday.
The "BS" he's referring to is a celebrity gossip report in France that claims he responded "Man, no homo," when asked about Frank Ocean coming out.
Apparently this is something one says in the hip-hop world when, after giving props to another guy, a guy makes clear there was no sexual connotation.
While the phrase is a debate in and of itself, and Brown's list of controversial actions and comments remains lengthy, he insists there was no ill will here.
Ocean, who counts 50 Cent, Beyonce and Russell Simmons among his supporters, even if Target won't sell his album, hasn't commented on Brown.
