Chris Brown Wonders If "Ebola Epidemic Is a Form of Population Control," Quickly Backtracks

Everyone's talking about Ebola these days--even Chris Brown!

On Monday, the 25-year-old "Loyal" singer tweeted his thoughts about the virus, writing, "I don't know ... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S--t is getting crazy bruh."

Three minutes later, Breezy seemed to backtrack, writing, "Let me shut my black ass up!"

That was too little, too late, though! His first tweet (which surprisingly, hasn't been deleted yet) sparked some serious outrage from individuals concerned about the Ebola epidemic, which, per CDC.gov, is the largest in history.

Rihanna's ex was also mocked relentlessly on social media, with many pointing out that music and medicine are two vastly different fields.

Regardless of your thoughts on Chris' Ebola conspiracy theory, you don't need to panic just yet. Per the CDC, the "risk of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is very low," and precautions to prevent this from happening are being taken.

There has been one case of travel-associated Ebola in the U.S. (in the case of a person traveling from West Africa to Texas). Additionally, the CDC confirms that a healthcare worker who provided care for this patient, who died 10 days after being admitted to a Texas hospital, has been diagnosed with the virus--the first case of person-to-person Ebola transmission to happen in the U.S.
