Miguel's crash landing on a fan at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards raised some eyebrows, but that was nothing compared to his latest Twitter rant.

On Monday, the "Adorn" singer took expressed some controversial opinions on stereotypes based on race on the social networking site.

"Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. S--ts sad man," he wrote. "we've been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves"

"that's why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture," he went on. "the problem can not be fixed until the problem is recognized. Not everyone is the same thank goodness. And obviously, I love all my fans

"Of course EVERYONE is judgemental" he continued. "I just PERSONALLY believe WE are the most critical of our own"

Miguel explained his own ethnic background to Madame Noire in 2010, saying, "My father is Mexican and my mother is black."

Well, at the end of the day, we're all just people!
