Los Angeles: Singer Chris Brown is the latest celebrity to voice his opinion on the Ebola epidemic and says that the virus is "a form of population control" before backtracking.

The rapper took to Twitter on Sunday to share his views about the lethal virus, which has so far killed over 4,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, and claimed that it was not a natural disease, reports mirror.co.uk.

The singer instead shared his conspiracy theory, suggesting that the pandemic has been deliberately manufactured to combat the world’s rising population.

“I don't know... But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S**t is getting crazy bruh,” he tweeted.

His tweet was met with disbelief with one follower simply asking "seriously?".

The 25-year-old realised his mistake and later posted: "Let me shut my black a** up!"
