Lance Bass Slams Chris Brown: ‘The ‘F’ Word Is Just Like Calling You The ‘N’ Word’
ONTD, of course, is outraged that a cracker is linking the two.
Lance Bass is calling Chris Brown out — about a certain word the R&B star should toss from his vernacular.
After a history of the letting the word “f**got” fly, whether it be in his hit “Look At Me Now” or an alleged attack on a fan, Brown has again come under fire for the homophobic slur. In the wake of Brown’s brawl with hip-hop artist Frank Ocean in late January, Ocean — who came out in late July — revealed to investigators that he was called the “f” word by a member of Breezy’s crew during the fray. And that simply doesn’t sit well with the openly gay Bass.
“Calling people faggot and that stuff, I mean, he may not even mean what he means, but it’s a derogatory term that people throw out there and without even knowing why they are saying it,” Bass told Celebuzz. “But when it comes to Frank Ocean and knowing that he’s … very out … it was definitely meant to hurt him. It’s never good to throw those words out there that mean so much.”
And it upsets Bass all the more that the slur is being thrown around by a minority.
“[Brown] should understand that being a black man himself. He should know that the F word is just like calling you the N word in a very derogatory way,” Bass said. “When you come from a minority like that, being gay or black or whatever, it’s like there should be an understanding, like we all get each other. But you don’t see that a lot, which is really sad.”
The “f” bomb adds to Brown’s already-lengthy track record of a bloody bar brawl, a foul-languaged Twitter feud, a controversial Halloween costume, and an ever-eyebrow-raising love life. And though Ocean opted not to press charges — and authorities will soon close the clash case — the “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer landed in more hot water Tuesday when the Los Angeles Country district attorney’s office accused him of falsifying court-ordered community service filings
Given Brown’s brushes with the law — dating back to his 2009 felony assault of recently reconciled girlfriend Rihanna — Bass sees the singer striding down a bad path.
“I think there are a lot of people out there that have anger issues, and you can definitely see that in Chris Brown. I hope he gets the help he needs,” said the former ‘N Sync member, who now hosts a live SiriusXM radio show called Dirty Pop with Lance Bass. “I hope Rihanna understands what she is in. I see it happen so many times in couples, where it’s like an abusive relationship and you don’t know it’s an abusive relationship.”
It is a double standard to accept the casual use of the f word but prohibit the n word.
Both words have been used to endangered two groups.
The irony, of course, being that Chris Brown is the biggest "N" word that ever "N"-worded.
Lance Bass is absolutely right.
What I find hilarious is that Chris Brown is a f**got
Sounds to me like Lance Bass is looking for permission to use the N word.
Lance is correct - it's just as hateful, hurtful, insulting and disrespectful. And why? Because both words are used by people who are intending to demean someone else.
homophobia in the black community must cease. It wounds.
How come everybody "slams" Chris Brown, but nobody slams Rihanna? For some reason, a lot of gays like the dumb ho, yet even though she's got a big gay fanbase, she chooses to stay with someone who calls people anti-gay slurs on a regular basis. Quit supporting that bitch too.
Probably lost on rappers because they all use the N word frequently.
What is ONTD and why is he/she/it outraged?
Oh Lance. Don't get upset. Just wait until chris brown murders someone. Then you can send him scathing letters in prison laughing at his predicament and telling him what a piece of shit he is and always has been
ONTD hates white privilege. They say that a white person should not be telling blacks when they should be outraged. They hate people using the black community to further their agenda/issue.
R12: ONTD hates white people. The amount of time a white celebrity is called basic, beige, or any other derogatory term is astonishing. Most of the people there jump on occasion to slam white people as racist, which is funny considering majority of them screaming "Check your privilege" are white female students. Social Justice Warriors and extremists at it worst.
F is the new N
Did not realize that ONTD is racist.
Will stop visiting that website.
ONTD is almost as bad as Just Jared when it comes to delusional fangurls.
r5 is what's known as an ill-motivated lying piece of shit.
It's not even close. You can type fag or faggot easily. In fact, in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and a lot of former British places fag means cigarettes.
Faggot is a type of food as well.
You can't even type the "n-word." It's thousands times worse.
Well, R18 aren't Australia, New Zealand, and the UK quite niggardly with their hate words.
[R16] They are much worse, because at least JJ fangirls don't pretend to be enlightened and smarter than they are.
r18, Lance is discussing America, you dope.
R8, since publicly reuniting with Brown (they never really split), Rihanna's popularity has taken a huge hit.
In the "things I never thought I'd type" category: I totally agree with Lance Bass.
Lance Bass is wrong. He upset both friends and co-workers with that statement. The black race cannot catch a break.
There are many white celebrities who use the word too. I don't know why Lance is choosing to direct this only at Brown.
[R18] I'm from New Zealand and I don't think 'fag' is used for cigarette here. It's just a British thing I think.
The F word can also mean Fat face as in Fat Face Tiffani Thiessen.
I'd have to agree with Lance!

You must be new here. Type Rihanna into the search bar and see what you find.
I love it when Google searches lead presumptuous, dumb fucks here.
Hold up, Frank Ocean never confirmed that he was either gay or bisexual. When asked the question, he says he refuses to answer. What gives?
R25, Because Chris Brown cannot catch a break. It's crazy how the poor guy has been treated.
Faggots should man up... the nigger can't help himself.
Frank got pulled over for having another dude blow him while was driving.
Lance is right.
I agree with Lance, its the same thing as youth saying "that's so gay" when describing something stupid. Imagine saying "that's so black" to describe something bad.
Girls, you're all so gay.
It makes me laugh that DL would be so upset about this when the misogyny and racism run rampant on this website. Many of you feel entitled to call people n**gers and c**ts and sp*cs, but as soon as many of you even THINK you smell a whiff of homophobia, you're ready to call in a SWAT team. Especially the gay white men on this thread, who feel that their sexuality should not bar them from white privilege.
R37, This thread is about Chris Brown and how horribly he has been treated. No excuse for it.
From Suburgatory's Dallas Royce, while pondering her life:
"And then it hit me like Chris Brown!"
r37...please fuck off and die in a grease fire.
R37 is tetched in the head.
You often see this mindset in people of mixed-race backgrounds.
I call it the "So close, but yet so far" syndrome.
Before you fuck off and die in a grease fire, R37, it's worth noting that of the words you chose to list, only "cunt" is actually acceptable.
So stop being such a cunt. Stop being such a dick. Stop being such a prick.
Words can hurt. Know your audience and choose your words wisely.
LOL, clearly I have made some people angry here. Must be doing something right.
Chris Brown is as worthless a piece of shit as Rush Limbaugh is.
"LOL, clearly I have made some people angry here. Must be doing something right."
Honey, we all know that's always been your motivation. I guess it's progress that you've dropped the pretense of self-righteousness.
R39 I love Dallas!
R37 is right and you know it. *cue the fake white male outrage* Oh, how oppressed you all are. lol
ONTD, like most places with overly PC libs, have a pecking order, and gays are below blacks on that chain. They supposedly support both, but in a dispute between the two, they take the side of the blacks always.
Catch a break from what, R23?
What we casually forget is that not the word alone matters but the intent why the word was said or used in the first place in that very moment or context and what matters even more is the relationship status of the guys who exchange these kind of words.
Obviously Chris said it to hurt, to humiliate, or to intimidate. This wasn't a 'bitch, please' / 'nigga, please' type of situation where friends banter with each other inside their own comfort zone.
We allow our close friends to disrespect and tease us in a playful manner that we wouldn't allow strangers or enemies to address us in any situation.
Boundaries exist for a reason. When you cross them you've got a problem.
Lance is right. He'll get criticized by the political correctness police, but I agree with him. Words with such loaded meanings shouldn't be used so casually.
