CHRIS BROWN LOSES ENDORSEMENTS & RADIO SPOTS

 

Feb. 11 ---/  As the district attorney is seeking more information on the alleged incident between singers Chris Brown and girlfriend Rihanna that occurred on Sunday in Los Angeles, the fallout from the story continues.

 

Brown, who was arrested and charged with making criminal threats after an alleged altercation that resulted in reported victim Rihanna sustaining serious injuries to her face, has already lost an endorsement deal with the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. The company, whose Doublemint Gum ads with Brown ran during the Grammys on Sunday night, suspended the campaign earlier this week.

 

On Tuesday, EW.com reported that "Sesame Street" said it was dropping all future re-broadcasts of Brown's August 13, 2007, appearance on the show. In the episode, Brown sang the song "See the Signs" and taught Elmo some dance moves.

 

Following suit, WAKS FM 96.5 in Cleveland announced that it yanked all Brown songs from its on-air playlist until further notice, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

 

"After the alleged incident the phones exploded," WAKS nighttime DJ Java Joel said in a press release. "It's all that people wanted to talk about. They were outraged at this alleged behavior and wondered why we were continuing to support his music. I agreed and immediately pulled all Chris Brown songs from my show until this thing shakes out in the legal system."

 

Following Joel's comments, station program director Bo Matthews reportedly decided to pull Brown's music off the station entirely. "It appears that Chris has made some poor choices, we are following the lead of our listeners, and we will not be supporting Chris Brown on 96.5 Kiss FM in Cleveland until the alleged situation gets resolved," Matthews said.

 

Brown's campaign for the long running "Got Milk?" series was already scheduled to end this week, but the campaign released a statement saying it takes the allegations against the singer "very seriously."
