Chris Brown is a pro at alienating his fan base.
The troubled R&B singer — who famously assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna after in February 2009 — waged war with former B2K member Raz-B on Wednesday, calling him a "dick in da booty a** lil boy."
Though Raz-B started the feud (he tweeted that he didn't understand how people like Brown and Eric Benet can "disrespect women as Intelligent as Halle Berry and Rihanna"), it was Brown who fanned the flames.
"Tell me this @razb2k! Why when the money was coming in you won't complaining about getting butplugged! #homothug!" Brown wrote. "I ain't deleting my tweet either! I was minding my damn business and Peter Pan decides to pop off!"
After Brown's fans accused him of being homophobic, the 21-year-old "Yeah 3x" singer claimed his attacks weren't intended to insult anyone but Raz-B.
"I'm not homophobic! He's just disrespectful!" Brown explained. "By the way, I love all my gay fans and this immature act is not targeted at you! It's wack as f*** that everybody can bash me, but soon as I defend myself it's World War III. I TAKE S*** FROM everybody… it's cool though."
Raz-B's response? "I love how you resort to disrespectful, low-brow tactics when you clearly sabotaged your own career by beating women!"
Brown, who complected his court-mandated domestic violence classes December 20, then issued a final apology to his fans.
"LOVE ALL MY SUPPORTERS and people who know my heart. HOMOPHOBE? C'mon, find a better tactic," he tweeted. "That's pure ignorance and stupidity. I love everyone."
