Chris Brown Withdraws From Kids' Choice Awards

3/11/2009 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownChris Brown is officially letting Nickelodeon off the hook, and taking himself off the list of nominees at the upcoming Kids' Choice Awards.

In a statement, his rep says:

"Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated.

While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so."


A rep for Nickelodeon tells us: "We are confirming that Chris Brown has decided to withdraw his nominations from the Kids' Choice Awards. We agree with and respect his decision, and are looking forward to presenting a great event for our audience."

That is sad that the beater has to withdraw rather than the network that targets our children doing it.
I have no respect for Nickleodeon anymore.
They are disgusting.

Removing himself is a VERY GOOD choice. His music might be award winning but his behavior is a disaster and does not serve as a positive role model for the young who are greatly influenced by their heros.

Sorry, I misunderstood! Yes, I'm glad he withdrew. Now, he can withdraw from all of us. He now joins the ranks of Kramer from "Seinfeld". Just a hated has-been.

No, a**hole, the focus shifted when you laid your hands on her, NOT because the media did their job and covered it.
