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.

Support this company, either through purchases or letting them know your appreciation. This could start a trend.

Its been half a decade since this whole chris and rihanna thing went down. He hasn't smacked around any females since. Its clear that society is trying make an example out of him, but lets just call it that and be on with it because between numerous celebs getting in domestic situations including charlie sheen shooting one of his ex gf's and christian bale allegedly assaulting his mother there is plenty of examples of folks that could equally be shown the rath of society.

Even though Rogers sux lemons and gouges customers, they did the right thing. Canadians always do the right thing. What is happening at CBS right now would NEVER fly in Canada. Just ask that quran burning pastor fro Florida. Canada is anti idiots

Sounds like they made a good decision. When risk is greater than the potential reward it's time to give it up.

The retard deserves what he dishes out.

Yet Charlie Sheen has a show and millions of supporters, and the backing of a major network. Alright then. I truly will never understand it. I honestly wish this man the best because if Sheen and those like him can get away with all of the f*cked up stuff they've done (no careers ruined), I really don't get why Brown can't get a chance to live without the public hammering down on him every second. "Haha that b*tch deserved it." when it's Charlie Sheen. "Off with his head!" when it's Chris Brown. Interesting...and also pathetic.
