Chris Brown Wants To Come To Oz To Raise Awareness Of Domestic Violence

Chris Brown has made an impassioned plea on Twitter overnight, saying that he still wants to come to Australia in December, in order to raise awareness of domestic violence.

Brown was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service for his 2009 assault on Rihanna, and had to undertake a year of court-ordered domestic violence counselling.

Although it’s the most notorious, this is not his only incident of violence and intimidation. Just back in June this year, he followed his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran from a club to a restaurant after she kicked him out of her car, and showed up at her doorstep at 3:30 in the morning, only leaving when the police were called. He also flew into a rage and broke a window at the ‘Good Morning America‘ studios in 2011 after being asked about Rihanna.

Last Saturday, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton confirmed that Breezy had been issued with a Notice of Intention to Consider Refusal, meaning he’s got 28 days to plead his case for a visa. Despite this, tickets for Chris Brown’s One Hell Of A Nite tour went on sale on Monday.

No word yet from Dutton or the Immigration Department on whether they’re taking Brown’s plea into consideration, but TBH, we didn’t expect one.

GetUp! haven’t said anything either, but when the news of Chris Brown’s looming visa rejection came through on Saturdau, they tweeted:

ICYMI, a powerful and confronting new domestic violence ad was released over the weekend, which compares the permanence of DV to tattoos.
