Chris Brown Cancels Concert in Guyana

It was bad news for Chris Brown fans in Guyana as his recent concert was cancelled. Local politicians and feminist groups opposed his presence, and rallied and protested against the singer. Protesters called for a boycott of the show due to Browns involvement in the 2009 assault against pop-star Rihanna, where he severely beat his then-girlfriend. Ultimately, those protests led to Brown’s team to decide it was best to cancel the concert amid the drama surrounding him performing in Guyana.

In another instance of the hip-hop star losing the opportunity to broaden his musical horizons, the Irish group The Original Rudeboys declined an offer from Brown to join him in concert as an opening act. They, too, cited his assault against Rihanna as the reason they wanted nothing to do with the generous offer. The group stated, “Even though it’s a huge opportunity to play with a major hip-hop star and a substantial fee was offered, we are completely against Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna.”

The megastar has shown some promise in repairing is badly hit image. As a part of his sentence in the 2009 assault against Rihanna, Brown completed violence counseling. Most recently, he’s been involved in launching a new charity called Symphonic Love; a program for kids.

The former couple has recorded music together since the incident and are currently pursuing a renewed friendship. With all that happening between the two, some wonder when Rihanna’s ex will be totally forgiven in the court of public opinion for what he did on that fateful night. Seeing as Rihanna has forgiven him and is exploring her options with her on-time abuser, it would only make sense for the public to do the same. Right? Unfortunately for Brown, it seems that is not enough to erase the memory of his actions once upon a time.
