Add Chris Brown to the list of celebrity conspiracy theorists.
The troubled R&B star offered his personal insight into the Ebola outbreak, writing on Twitter, "I don't know ... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S--t is getting crazy bruh."
He has 13.7 million followers, many of whom disagreed with his assessment — or just wanted to poke fun at the "Don't Think They Know" singer.

Chris Brown's wondering if Ebola is a form of population control. Obviously it isn't. DUH. If it was, we would have given it to him first.— P.K. (@MyPresidentPK) October 14, 2014
Brown, who served 108 days in jail earlier this year for violating his probation related to his conviction of felony assault against Rihanna, seemed to rethink sharing his opinion, posting soon after, "Let me shut my black ass up!"
Despite his detractors, Brown's statement resonates with some of the Twitterverse. His post has nearly 30,000 retweets and 22,000 favorites.
The Ebola outbreak has led to more than 4,000 deaths. West Africa has been hit the hardest, but there have been cases in Spain as well as the U.S., where one person has died and a nurse treating him has since tested positive.
