Chris Brown pulled from TV spots

Chris Brown hours before the incidentIn the aftermath of his alleged vicious beating of girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown has been dropped by Wrigley’s Doublemint Gum. As well, Sesame Street said it would drop any future re-broadcasts of Brown’s 2007 appearance on the show. Brown’s Got Milk? series was scheduled to end this week, and producers say they’re taking the allegations made against him “very seriously.” WAKS FM 96.5 in Cleveland has announced that all songs by Brown have been yanked from their playlist after they received numerous calls from outraged listeners asking why they were still playing his songs. Program director Bo Matthews said, “It appears that Chris has made some poor choices, we are following the lead of our listeners, and we will not be supporting Chris Brown on 96.5 Kiss FM in Cleveland until the alleged situation gets resolved.” Brown himself has cancelled a number of events he was scheduled to attend in Phoenix this weekend. Meanwhile, the rented Lamborghini that he left at the scene of the beating sits in a police impound lot. Brown is paying $2,000 a day on rental fees and as a part of the evidence in the case, it doesn’t look like he’ll be getting the car back anytime soon.

    though i like his music…i think all music stations shouldn’t play his songs until everything’s clear. i respect through what he has done with his career, but through his personalities, his ego got the best of him.

    wow, i think he completely deserves everything he gets. why support someone who thinks abuse is ok?

  3. My own opinion • February 11, 2009 @ 4:05 PM

    I seem to recall a comment (referring to another topic) “what someone does on their own time is their own business.”

  4. sk8tergirl • February 11, 2009 @ 4:50 PM

    Wow… he seemed like a nice guy so this is just sad… abuse is just wrong.

    hhmmm interesting how “innocent until proven guilty” has been thrown out the window.

    do i think he did it…YES

    do i think he just beat her for no reason…NO theres alwas more to the story…

    does anyone have the right to put there hands on someone else regardless of gender YES depend on the situation. doesn’the have marks on him? little more of the story coming out seems to be she started it.

    chime in Nancy i love your comments.

  6. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 6:00 PM

    Ok Max…you asked for it! First of all, YOU are the only one who has mentioned her giving Chris herpes…haven’t heard that one from anyone else!! Now, “innocent until proven guilty”…well, Chris was in the car and Rihanna was in the car…she comes out bloody, bruised, bitten AND unconscious (yes, the media is now reporting that he choked her until she was unconscious), hmmm…I wonder if she did it to herself???

    “do i think he did it…YES do i think he just beat her for no reason…NO theres always more to the story…” Are you a woman beater Max? Because you sure sound like one!

    Now, Max…I’d like to know where you heard that she started it (and it doesn’t matter even if she did..cause he still had no right), but I’d really like to know where you heard that because I’ve been hearing through the media that Chris was jealous of her paying attention to Timbaland at Clive’s party and that she found his ex’s phone # on his cell, they argued, he pulled the car over, she threw the keys out the window…probably while he was beating her..then he supposedly told her he was going to k!ll her and choked her…that’s what I “heard”. But none of it matters to me, all that matters is that he beat her and there’s no excuse Max…NO EXCUSE!

  7. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 6:30 PM

    So wait the herpes things is all gossip just like what your reporting about the beating, choking, and now she was unconscious etc..see the problem with women like you is he’s guilty only bc it was reported as domesic assualt no other reaosn, no police reports have been released..NOTHING these bit marks, brusies etc all came from someone wanting there name in a ppaper with the “inside info”

    now your saying about throwing the keys out the car bc he’s beating her…so she though the best thing to do when getting beaten is lean in closer to him to get the keys..rrriiiiiigggghht

    also how was she able to get his cell phone from him,

    let me ask you this nancy how would you have felt if the situation was completly reversed, and he had a few marks on him, and the story came out he was cheating on her and gave her herpes….and your true view not a political view.

  8. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 6:55 PM

    Well Max, I am the one who said that she probably threw the keys out the window when he hit her. If the situation was reversed, I’d be saying the same thing…it doesn’t matter WHO started it or WHAT it started over, there should not have been a beating. I’ll say the same to you that I say to my son…it takes a “real man” to walk away.

  9. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 7:15 PM

    A real man would walk away: that is the most played out line and that refers to a women hitting a man and him taking it and walking away..hhhmmm Equal rights much?

    explain why someone would LEAN in closer to get keys while she’s getting beaten, wouldn’t she try to excape and get away not get closer?

    and what makes you say there was a beating? the media reporting it like that “E” network

    I’m sure more will come out of this then she just sat there like a poor creature well scary man beat her…but you seem to see it as completly one side were you beaten before, left disfigured from it, nightmares awake you from past horror.

    oh and as for the comment am I a women beater:if I was I wouldn’t tell you!!!!!!

  10. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 7:25 PM

    You don’t have to tell me, Max…it is quite clear from your comments! And, I never said she sat there “like a poor creature”, I said TO ME, it doesn’t matter WHAT she did..it didn’t require a beating, and yes, I said “beating”..because that is what you call it when someone leaves bruises all over ones face with a bloody nose and a busted lip, and bite marks on their arms and fingers. It’s not like it was just a little slap or a push as in self defense, Max. Stop making excuses for your fellow “woman beaters”!!

  11. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 8:01 PM

    lol women beater unite form of Voltron!!!!!!!!!

    bitting arm and fingers: could easly have been from her trying to scratch his face so he bit her or even better NOTHING all hear say.

    explain why you beleive he attacked her and not the other way around. bc of marks on her. why have you choosen one side, bc of marks?

    see a 120lb girl punches a guy very little evideance of a mark left , now a 220lb guy punches a girl allot of damage so are you taking only the physical damage to determine who beat who?

    also explained to me why you beleive there was so many marks all over her body have you seen the pics, police report, etc or is this once again “E” network reportes who’s job is to drum up crap like that.

  12. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 8:04 PM

    Nancy your like my girlfriend you love the hollywood drama and gossip on who did what to who, no real report just hear say, I’ll let you speak to her when she’s home from the hospital, she fell and hit her eye on a doorknob but she’s gettiung better.

  13. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 8:15 PM

    You need help…seriously Max! Tell it to Tribute Max, we`re just here to give our opinions on the subject..whether it is the truth or hearsay is for the courts to decide. I`ll tell ya one thing though Max, there is no way in hell I will ever agree with your reasoning…a 220 lb man hitting a 120 lb woman, and you think that is OK??? Like I said, get some help!

  14. Max Powers • February 11, 2009 @ 8:24 PM

    WTF!!! I think you missed my point if a 120lb girl hit a guy there would be little to no mark, but if a 220lb guy hit a girl there would be a mark, so based on that you have come to the conclusion that who ever has worse marks is the victim. do you understand now

    he’s perfect example of gossip it’s now being reported on “E” that he beat her bc she was cheatign on him with another girl(very hot by the way!!!) Gossip..thats all it is until the police report is released

  15. Nancy • February 11, 2009 @ 9:25 PM

    Like I said Max, tell it to Tribute…this is a “celebrity gossip” website. Maybe everything that is being reported is not true and I`m sure that some of it is BS but, it still doesn`t matter WHY he did it, Max…HE DID IT! He beat the crap outta her and no judge and no jury is ever going to believe that he was just “defending himself”. Just look at one fact here Max…he left the scene..that tells ya something right there!

  16. Jessie • February 12, 2009 @ 9:04 AM

    Max…your a douche. Just shut up already because your sounding like more of an idiot with each comment. Or if your going to keep writing at least spell right.

  17. ? • February 12, 2009 @ 9:16 AM

    WHatever i saw it coming, its Whitney and Bobby all over again

  18. tributegirl • February 13, 2009 @ 11:12 AM

    Jessie, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
    Nancy made it quite clear that it is never right to beat someone, regardless of the gender of the one being beaten, or the one doing the beating. Max keeps trying to make excuses for Chris’s actions. That makes Max as big a stupid turd as Chris.

  19. Nancy • March 2, 2009 @ 7:12 PM

    HAHAHAHAHA!! Max the “stupid turd”!! That’s f-ing hilarious!
