Chris Brown: 'Ebola is a form of population control'

OUTSPOKEN: Chris Brown

US SINGER Chris Brown was condemned on Twitter for suggesting that the deadly Ebola virus was "a form of population control".

The New Flame hit-maker tweeted his thoughts on the epidemic, which has killed more than 4,000 people in West Africa as well as one person in the U.S, yesterday (Oct 13), but quickly backtracked, writing: "Let me shut my black a** up!"

Initially, Brown wrote: "I don't know ... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S*** is getting crazy bruh."

His controversial post received over 12,000 retweets and has not been deleted by the singer.

It did not take long for people to latch on to Brown's tweet, with dozens of people criticising his odd conspiracy theory.

Jean Hollywood wrote: "News of the day 2: thick and insensitive @chrisbrown claims ebola is population control, the pr**k [population control your own sorry a**."

Wayne Durham added: "The stupid gene is strong in Chris Brown."

Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, was the first person to die of Ebola on U.S. soil on Wednesday, after travelling to America from Liberia in September.

The U.S. began screening people travelling from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea - the worst-hit nations - for Ebola at numerous airports on Saturday.

The UK is also conducting medical checks on people entering the country, and held a major exercise last week to ensure the emergency services were prepared for a first Ebola case.

The World Health Organization has called the Ebola outbreak "the most severe, acute health emergency seen in modern times".
