    Chris Brown tweeted that "I have total respect for Gay community and my intention was not to insult anyone in it. #REALS**T" after TMZ filmed the singer ranting and raving at cameramen in an LA parking lot after he accused them of alerting parking authorities that his vehicle was parked illegally.

    Brown was filmed shouting: "Y'all n**gas is weak. Did you all call them to try and film me? Y'ALL N**GAS IS GAY."

    That was enough to have The Human Rights Campaign speak up about Brown's pointed vocabulary. A rep said, "Invoking words meant to demean gay Americans is just plain unacceptable. Chris Brown should know better. He irresponsibly neglected to recognize the impact of his words and the unacceptable message that it sends to couple the word 'gay' with negative actions."

    That is what prompted Brown's apology.

    Do you think Chris Brown's apology was sincere? Or was he bowing to pressure from THRC?
