And the troubled R&B star decided to make his frustrations known by joining the national anthem protest during a September 11 charity basketball game.
On Sunday, Breezy became the latest star to join San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick‘s protest of racial injustice, and took a stand by remaining seated during The Star-Spangled Banner.
Before belting out the tune ahead of Power 106’s Celebrity Basketball Game, R&B singer Tank compelled the crowd to stand in respect for those who lost their lives in the terror attacks at the World Trade Center.
The special occasion didn’t seem to resonate with Brown, who refused to stand and appeared to smirk at the people around him who stood up.
While he clapped at the end of the song, the singer’s unpatriotic behavior sparked some outrage on social media, with some calling his actions “disgusting.”
But Brown didn’t seem to mind the hate, as he acknowledged the incident on Instagram:

The 27-year-old’s participation in the protest isn’t surprising, as he verbally attacked police for making him out to be a villain after an intense standoff at his home last week.
By the looks of it, this controversial protest over racial injustice is just getting started in America.
