Christoper Douglas Hollosy, described in the lawsuit as Brown's bodyguard, is also named as a defendant in the suit.

According to the lawsuit, Maryland resident Parker Isaac Adams and a female friend arrived at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., to meet another female friend, while Brown was leaving the hotel toward his tour bus. One of the females asked to take a picture with Brown, and the singer consented.

However, Adams claims that he then leaned in to take a picture with his cell phone, at which point Brown allegedly said, “I'm not down with that gay shit” and declared, “I feel like boxing.”

The suit, filed in Superior Court in Washington, D.C, alleges assault and battery, and seeks $1 million in compensatory damages from Brown, plus another $500,000 in punitive damages. Adams is asking for identical damages from Hollosy.

Brown's attorney has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.

    There is nothing wrong with making fun of immoral people.

    It is called “personal
    responsibility”. We know liberals hate those two words when they are together
    because they do not want to take responsibility for their actions. It is not
    rich people’s fault you or your kids dropped out of high school. It is not rich
    people’s fault that they decided to study in high school and had the guts to
    start their own business and work at it until they had a winning product and/or
    service. It is not rich people’s fault that you chose to have a child out of wedlock
    and not listen to good advice when it was being handed to you. Most rich people
    were not born rich, they worked hard and did not spend all their spare time
    watching MTV or waiting for something to happen. They made it happen and they
    employ millions of Americans in jobs that matter. Your government job does not
    matter, most likely. And union members kill jobs but that is another story. It
    is about personal responsibility which liberals do not want to acknowledge
    because then they would have to realize their failure and stagnant professional
    is their fault and on one else’s.
