The Glendale, CA Elks Lodge is investigating a shocking incident that went down in the club a week ago Monday, when a performer sang a song celebrating the death of Michael Brown ... for an audience that included a number of retired and current cops.
The song was a parody of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown." Gary Fishell, the performer and a member of the Lodge, changed the lyrics, which include:
Michael Brown learned a lesson about a messin'
With a badass policeman
And he's bad, bad Michael Brown
Baddest thug in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog
Two men took to fightin'
And Michael punched in through the door
And Michael looked like some old Swiss cheese
His brain was splattered on the floor
And he's dead, dead Michael Brown
Deadest man in the whole damn town
His whole life's long gone
Deader than a roadkill dog
The event was the capper for a charity golf event, thrown by retired LAPD Officer Joe Myers, a 32 year veteran who left the force in 2007. TMZ was told 50-60 people attended the dinner, and about half were cops, most of whom were retired. The others were civilians.
Singer Gary Fishell is a P.I. who once worked as an investigator for the Federal Government. His lawyer tells TMZ, Fishell now realizes the song was "off color and in poor taste." The lawyer adds, "He's a goofball who writes funny songs." TMZ asked why Fishell would sing this in a room full of cops, and the lawyer replied, "He thought the room would get a kick out of it."
Joe Myers tells TMZ, "How can I dictate what he [Fishell] says in a song?" Myers goes on, "This is America. We can say what we want. This is a free America." Myers adds ... he's done this as an annual event for decades and has raised a lot of money for charity.
Someone who was at the event videotaped it because they were offended by the song and upset no one was objecting.
A trustee for the Lodge says, the dinner was not an Elks Club event ... it was a golf tournament run by Myers and since he was a member he had a right to hold a dinner there.
The trustee tells TMZ many of the hundreds of members of the Glendale Elks Lodge are upset about the song, saying, "It's deplorable and inappropriate and the Lodge will take disciplinary action against [Fishell] and possibly the people who organized this event."
The trustee added, "We don't stand for any racist things like this."

A Pastor has gone viral after a video was released from a summer sermon. The Rev. Westley West of Faith Empowered Ministries in Baltimore used the popular nae nae dance to get his congregation going, including the kids. “Stand up and begin to nae nae the hell out,” West yelled out back in August at the 1st Annual Youth & Young Adults Back to School Jam.
I must admit at first I was taken a back... but the kids enjoyed it and it was obviously a play on words. Watch the video below and you decide for yourself. Was it team too much or in context with the event and crowd?

It looks like Chris Brown and Karrueche have called it quits yet again! Last Night during Chris's performance at Power106's Cali Christmas Concert, Chris asked fans "how many single ladies out there tonight? I'm single too! Fu*k that bitch!" Check out his full concert set below and his bold statement at 18:45.
Then of course Karrueche took to twitter to add her 2cents saying "Niggas be in they feelings when you break up with them lol."
I'm positive these two will be back together by next week.
