R&B singer Chris Brown has been bashed for his comments on Twitter about the killer Ebola virus, referring to it as a possible “form of population control”.
His followers were quick to blast him over his controversial remarks, but is he totally wrong?
Brown is known to be outspoken and took to Twitter with his thoughts on the epidemic, which has killed over 4K in West Africa and one in the United States.
The singer tweeted, “I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S*** is getting crazy bruh.”
Three minutes later after he was bashed by some of his 13.6 million followers, Brown tried to backtrack.
His first post received nearly 9,500 retweets and has not been deleted by the singer.
Dozens of people started criticizing the singer’s conspiracy theory.
Comedian Warren Holstein tweeted, “Chris Brown tweeted that Ebola is ‘a form of population control.’ He should try it.” Ouch!
Kevin Hildebrand tweeted, “Let’s keep in mind that Chris Brown is a complete idiot, so his theory of Ebola is equal to a rant from a village idiot.”
Wayne Durham tweeted, “‘The stupid gene is strong in Chris Brown.”
The U.S. began screening people traveling from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea for Ebola at numerous airports on Saturday, but many believe we should stop all travel from the area.
Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, was the first person to die of Ebola on U.S. soil on Wednesday, after traveling to the United States from Liberia in September.
The World Health Organization has called the Ebola outbreak “the most severe, acute health emergency seen in modern times”.
There is no vaccine for the virus, with the UN expecting the outbreak to continue for at least three months.
