Chris Brown

Sponsor Drops Out of Show

Because He Signed On

7/13/2013 9:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0625_chris_brown_articleA concert event in Canada scheduled to go down next month finds itself down one sponsor after they decided to pull out of the event once Chris Brown was added to the lineup.

A spokesman for Rogers Communications confirmed on Twitter last night the company was pulling its name from the show, which is scheduled to go down August 31 in Halifax. Responding to several complaints on Twitter, the spokesman wrote, "In light of today's announcement, we're withdrawing our sponsorship of the event."

He continued, "Rogers agreed to sponsor Energy Rush prior to Chris Brown's choice as a performer."

No way to mistake their meaning ... they want NO PART of anything involving CB.

KUDOS to Rogers Communications. If more sponsors had the balls to stop promoting anything that involves this woman beater they are sending a very strong message to these stupid, self entitled a$$holes who think that they can do anything that they want and not suffer any consequences. Welsome to the real world you woman beating moron.

Finally hit him where it hurts with the SPONSORS. Maybe just maybe now people will stop supporting this little weasel who beats on women and has serious anger issues. I mean come on now he is no longer a kid and has to own up to his actions and take responsibility for said actions. Good on Rogers Communications. Once one sponsor goes the others follow. Let the domino effect begin bwhahaha

Finally ! I will have to email this company and thank them. Now, if only we could get more companies like this to do the same for Justin Bieber! After his latest of many antics of urinating in a bucket in a kitchen and defacing a photo of Clinton, sponsors should back out of this little twits concerts. I don't care how much money this company has it sends a clear message. Well done!
