Chris Brown pulls out of concert over protests

Nov 22 2012, 2:04pm CST | by

Chris Brown has cancelled a planned concert in Guyana in December after protesters made it clear he would not be welcome due to his 2009 assault on Rihanna.

Chris Brown pulled out of a planned concert in Guyana following protests over his assault on Rihanna in 2009.
The 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer was scheduled to perform in the South American country's capital Georgetown on December 26 but after women's rights groups and other protestors made it clear he would not be welcome, he decided to cancel.
Concert promoter Hits & Jams Entertainment said Chris - who is still on probation for beating up his then girlfriend three years ago - cited discomfort with the protests, according to the New York Daily News.
This is not the first time Chris has faced opposition since the assault; Irish acoustic hip hop trio the Original Rudeboys recently turned down an offer to support him at Dublin's O2 arena in December as they don't want to be associated with the R&B singer.
A member of the group Sean Walsh said: ''Even though it's a huge opportunity to play in the O2 with a major hip hop star and a substantial fee was offered, we are completely against Chris Brown's assault on Rihanna.''
The group also claimed they didn't want to mislead their own fans as their latest single 'Blue Eyes' is about domestic violence.
Sean said: ''In addition, with our latest single 'Blue Eyes' being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about as a band and supporting Chris would send out the wrong message to our fans.''
