Chris Brown

That alliteration was entirely accidental, but I’m keeping it anyway because I like it. Anyway, Chris Brown has decided to cancel a string concerts he was supposed to do in Canada, and has chalked it up to health and personal reasons. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the petition that was launched to stop Chris from performing in the Maritimes. Or that his probation was reinstated. Eh. Via HuffPo

The promoter of four Chris Brown concerts in Canada scheduled this summer says the events have been cancelled. Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said Monday that the decision was made after consulting with Brown and in light of his recent personal and health-related issues. The R&B star had his probation reinstated Friday after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident. The hit-and-run charge was dismissed earlier.

Canadians may be overly polite apologists, but don’t get it twisted, we can will put our foot down when we need to. If that’s okay with you. We’ll try and be as gentle as we can, but we really must insist on putting our foot down. Oh, sorry, was that too loud? We apologize. We promise we’ll be more quiet next time. We hope you have a pleasant day, violent domestic abuser!
