This week the British government barred Chris Brown from entering the UK to perform. As you remember, Brown pleaded guilty last year to a felony charge of assaulting his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. With no work visa, his shows in England and Scotland have been cancelled.
Brown was reportedly denied entry because of his record of domestic violence.
A British Home Office official told CNN that “because of his felony charge, it might not be a very good idea” to allow Brown into the country.
…”We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense,” said Barbara Woodward, director of the UK border agency’s international group. “Public safety is one of our primary concerns.”
In a Twitter message, Brown responded, saying:
“U ever feel like the storm clouds are too thick for any sunshine to get through? think ima go away!!!!”
Please do, asshole.
