Angry Dude Calls Chris Brown 'N**ga' Outside L.A. Nightclub

R&B singer Chris Brown appears in court for a probation progress report hearing on February 6, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. Prosecutors have alleged that he has failed to meet the terms of his probation.

Listen, nobody likes Chris Brown, but that doesn't mean that he should be accosted by angry drunk people outside of nightclubs (it does possibly mean that he shouldn't be allowed in nightclubs, but that's a whole different story).

Whilst leaving Playhouse in Hollywood recently, Brown was caught on video by TMZ getting into a verbal spat with a random dude. As he's climbing into his white Lamborghini, a gentleman comes up to him and hollers, "is that motherfucker bulletproof?" seemingly referring to the car.

Chris can be heard hollering back, "Are you bulletproof?"

The gentleman in question then responds, "I'm a crip, n**ga, hell yeah I'm bulletproof."

Brown then closes the doors to his car and speeds away, leaving the man yelling behind him.

To his credit, Brown didn't engage the man too much, and didn't get out of his car or accelerate the altercation.

This might have something to do with the fact that he's still on probation, and also that his community service is in question by LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

Brown was assigned 180 days of community service back in 2009 following his beating of Rihanna. He was supposed to complete the hours in Virginia, but Lacey recently accused him of not completing the hours at all. Lacey has asked that he finish them here in Los Angeles.
