In a string of tweets on Monday, U.S. rapper Chris Brown revealed his thoughts on the Ebola virus, calling it a “form of population control.”

“I don't know ... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control,” he said, adding in the same tweet that “S**t is getting crazy bruh.”

In the tweet, Brown appears to formulate his own conspiracy theory that the outbreak, which has so far claimed the lives of 4,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, was deliberate rather than natural.

He then watered-down his claim with another tweet saying, “Let me shut my black a** up!”

Brown was released from prison in June after serving 108 days of his 131-day sentence after being convicted of assaulting his previous girlfriend, singer Rihanna, in 2009.

Separately, the U.S. has undertaken extra measures to screen for Ebola at five of the country’s major airports.
