Chris Brown’s Wrigley Ads Suspended; History Of Abuse

February 9th, 2009 // 19 Comments

Doublemint gum ads prominently featuring singer Chris Brown have been suspended while the pop star remains the subject of an investigation. In the wake of reports that girlfriend Rihanna was found by police in Brown’s rented Lamborghini “beaten really badly and hysterical,” Wrigley is pulling the ads.

The “Disturbia” singer reportedly called 911 after her boyfriend fled the scene, taking the car keys with him. She was then taken to the emergency room for treatment after an attack that reportedly involved “a deadly weapon,” while Chris turned himself into police.

Injuries sustained by Rihanna include “a bloody lip and nose,” and two “huge contusions” on either side of her forehead, as well as multiple bite wounds. Rumor has it that Rihanna might cancel an upcoming Asian tour and her family “want[s] to get her back to Barbados. They want to keep her away from Chris right now.”

As for Brown, he’s no stranger to domestic violence, having admitted in a 2007 interview with Giant magazine that he witnessed his stepfather brutally beating his mother. Brown recalled, “I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day…’ I hate him to this day.”

    Why would Wrigley hire him in the FIRST place? What clean cut teen role model has a SKULL tattooed on his right hand? Even though the skull has a halo, it still suggests that Chris Brown isn’t a nice young man. To the guillotine!!!

    Both of them are in need of healing right now. He need’s to work on how to direct his anger, & how to keep his hands to himself, & how to make things right with God, Rihanna, & their fans. His pastor can only tell him so much. He has to read the bible for himself, & apply the direction of what he has read to his everyday thinking, & behavior. The pastor can not get him forgivness from god, he has to do it himself. Remember James 2-26 faith without works is dead. You can’t just read it, you have to do it.
