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.

I'd like to know how he can get into Canada anyway, with a criminal record. And BTW, 2 more sponsors of the event have withdrawn today once they heard he was in the showl

Ok, as far as I know, he did apologise, he did do his probation, he was even recently involved with her.

So why keep punishing him? Its because you have a personal dislike of him as an individual. Strip everything away from him to do what? Teach a lesson I presume but this was many years ago and we clearly do not know how to forgive and forget.
