Rogers Communications, one of the sponsors for a concert event - Energy Rush, a show put on by radio station Energy 103.5, scheduled to go down next month in Canada, has decided to pull out of the event, because Chris Brown was added to the list of artistes to perform there..
A spokesman for the company confirmed on Twitter that Rogers Communications was removing its name from the show. The spokesman tweeted:
"In light of today's announcement, we're withdrawing our sponsorship of the event... Rogers agreed to sponsor Energy Rush prior to Chris Brown's choice as a performer."
This simply means the company wants no part of anything involving Chris Brown.
Meanwhile, Chris Brown's camp has fired back:
"It's a shame that some people are so short-sighted and uninformed. Chris is an award-winning artist whose goal is to inspire and entertain. He engages in many philanthropic endeavors to support his community and communities worldwide... He's just embarked on the Unity Campaign to bring people together despite their differences while promoting tolerance and forgiveness. Chris strives to learn from his past and to grow as a person, as we should all do. Chris is looking forward to being a part of the Energy Rush Concert Series."
In my view, I think Chris Brown is very talented as well as controversial.
Let me know what you think about him.
