I Was NOT BANNED

Chris Brown
says his criminal record played NO ROLE in why he couldn't perform at the massive Michael Jackson tribute in Wales this weekend -- claiming widespread reports that he was "banned" are simply false.

TMZ spoke with Brown's rep, who tells us Chris WAS invited to perform in the show, "however, his previously booked domestic F.A.M.E. tour concert dates didn’t allow him to accept the honor and therefore he never planned to go to the UK. He was not banned."

The rep points out that Brown spent the weekend performing in Tampa, Charlotte and Virginia Beach -- dates that had been scheduled BEFORE he was asked to join the MJ show.

Can't stand most poor Michael's family, but that Joe Jackson makes me want to hurl straight into his nostrils.

It's time for everyone to let this young man live his life. Rihanna has forgiven him and moved on time for everyone else to do the same. Live and learn people live and learn. Everyone deserves a second chance!

Know where this loser is banned from? My ears! There is so much great music out there, life is too short to waste on this idiot and his "controversial" manners and such. Never mind the fact that I will never think of him in anything except that blue bow tie/sweater ensemble. This douche is a product, and there are plenty of others that are better.

LMAO at PRO US comment on page one!!

Yeah, not the least surprised the LaToya/KJ/GLE scabs would have invited this ghetto woman beater POS to "honor" Micheal. ZERO intelligence, or class, "Birds of a Feather" in integrity, or character. Would have been surprised if they hadn't.

Okay so they didn't use the word Banned. You were just Prohibited from ever entering the country. That explains it.

OMG! Katherine Jackson and her clan are about to pull ANOTHER CHARITY SCAM, this time on the good and honorable people of Japan! Someone alert the MJ Japanese fan clubs and tell them to BOYCOTT!!

The Jacksons are claiming they are HOLDING A BENEFIT CONCERT for charity to help the CHILDREN of Japan affected by the earthquake, but NONE of the profits from ticket sales are going to charity -- ALL THE CONCERT PROFIT IS GOING TO THE JACKSONS.

The only amount to be donated to charity will be "MERCHANDISING PROFITS." That's right: people will have to buy t-shirts and mugs for any money to be donated to charity. After merchandising expenses are paid, the remaining profits will be donated "to help the children." The BULK OF THE PROFITS -- FROM THE CONCERT ITSELF -- GOES TO THE JACKSONS' BANK ACCOUNTS.

Here's how it was described in one article (CAPS are mine for emphasis):


Jackson Family announce ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ concerts in Japan (Dec. 13 and 14)

Michael Jackson’s family are staging a BENEFIT CONCERT in Japan TO HELP CHILDREN affected by the earthquake earlier this year, as they know it is a cause the late star would have supported.

Katherine Jackson has announced the Tokyo EVENT WILL HELP A CAUSE that her son would have done everything he could to support. Speaking at a press conference...she TEARFULLY told media: “If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.”

...The brothers can’t wait to get to the country and DO SOMETHING TO HELP THE JAPANESE PEOPLE affected by the natural disaster which hit the coast of the Far East country in March.

MERCHANDISING profits from ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ – which will take place in Tokyo on December 13 and 14 – will be donated to ASHINAGA, a charity which helps children who lost their homes or families in the March earthquake.

THE JACKSONS ARE PULLING ANOTHER CONCERT CHARITY SCAM, this time on the peole of Japan. No wonder we have a reputation abroad as "THE UGLY AMERICANS." Jackson Family, YOU ARE A DISGRACE!


John Branca and John McClain, they are using Michael's good name for a CHARITY SCAM. DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's The Truth    

Why shouldn't he be allowed at the MJ tribute? A woman beater isn't any worse than a drug addicted CHILD MOLESTER!!!! There shouldn't be any tribute to MJ. Why don't we have a tribute to all the priests that molested kids to? I hope he is rotting in hell and that Brown joins him.

ALL YOU WHITE RACIST AND REDNECKS THAT LIVED IN HOMES WHERE YOU WERE SECRETLY MOLESTED BY YOUR FATHERS AND YOUR MOTHER WAS CONSTANTLY GIVEN BODY PUNCHES SO THAT THE BRUISES DIDNT SHOW NEED TO GET A LIFE. THIS WASNT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SHE WASNT BATTERED IT WAS A FIGHT THAT SHE STARTED AND COULDNT FINISH. NOW HAD IT BEEN YOUR WHITE GIRLFRIEND THAT SWUNG AT YOU SHE WOULDNT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BE EMBARASSED IN FRONT OF THE PUBLIC. BECAUSE YOU'D BURIED HER BATTERED BODY IN THE WOODS. SO I GUESS RIRI WAS LUCKY SHE HIT A BLACK MAN INSTEAD.
