Chris Brown may have developed a bit of a negative image recently, but here's something that might help turn that around a bit.

On Monday, the "Fine China" singer tweeted, "Love is not a crime. Gay or straight. Love who u wanna love. Stop the hate & sign here," along with a link to an petition.

The petition is asking Cameroon's President Paul Biya and other politicians in the African country to accept United Nations recommendations to protect homosexuals due to a rise in anti-gay violence in the region.

The recommendations include preventing attacks and discrimination, ending the law that makes it a crime to be gay and freeing those who are currently incarcerated simply due to their sexual orientation.

This actually isn't the first time Brown has shown his support for gay rights. As Digital Spy reported, he did so via his single "Don't Think They Know" earlier this year.
