Chris Brown blasted the "racist" District Attorney involved in getting him sentenced to 1,000 more hours of community service in a Twitter rant Thursday. The rant comes after a court hearing last week.

Brown's probation was reinstated and the singer was sentenced to 1,000 additional hours of community labor on Friday, Aug. 16, by Superior Court Judge James Brandlin.

CAUTION: Strong language ahead.

The sentencing came after a May hit-and-run incident as well as a dispute over the community service he performed following his 2009 assault case involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

In 2009, Brown was sentenced to 1,440 hours of community service, which he is said to have completed in Virginia, the Los Angeles Times noted. But in February, LA County Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary A. Murray accused the "Love More" singer of submitting false reports.

On Thursday, Brown publicly aired his grievances with the DA in a Twitter rant.

E! News reports that while being sentenced in court, the 24-year-old told his attorney, "I understand. I understand. I am going to say whatever I want to. It's how I feel. I don't care."

Earlier this month, Brown suffered a seizure and blamed it on the stress of the "continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity," according to a statement from his rep, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. Prior to that, he announced plans to quit music because he is "tired of being famous for a mistake."

The R&B star has a year to complete the most recent sentencing. He is due back in court Nov. 20.
