Wrigley announced today they are suspending its ad campaign for Doublemint gum featuring Chris Brown.

Chris Brown: Click to watch
Wrigley said in a statement, "We have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved."

The company would not go as far as saying they are dropping him completely, saying Brown should be "afforded the same due process as any citizen."

Good news he is loosing endorsements. Volence against women and/or anyone else is wrong. If he can spend the money to rent expensive cars then he can spend it to hire an anger management person to teach him to be a real man, a gentleman.
