Controversy loves to follow Chris Brown wherever he goes. So it’s no surprise that there has been a huge uproar after the Energy Rush festival announced that Brown was the headliner for this summer’s cross nation festivals.
Since then, the headlining image of Brown has been removed from the Energy Rush homepage and several sponsors have pulled out from the Halifax performance. Even Mike Savage, the mayor of Halifax, told Canadian Press that he does not think Brown is a good role model nor will the city support Brown’s appearance.
On the other hand, Stephen Tobin, the owner of Drop Entertainment Group which is hosting the festival, says that the reactions of other Canadian markets from Toronto and Winnipeg have been “nothing short of electric and overwhelmingly positive.”
What do you think: Should Chris Brown be docked from the ticket or should the show go on? Sound off in the comments.
