Chris Brown hasn't heard the last of Wrigley's

Before Chris Brown turned Rihanna's face into a Picasso painting back in February, he had a pretty nice endorsement deal with Wrigley's Doublemint Gum (I don't know if you've heard, but it now has double the flavor and double the fun). Through exhaustive market research, Wrigley's discovered that people don't like to chew gum endorsed by dudes who beat up chicks, so they scrapped the campaign (I'm sure it didn't help that a pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit was front and center in the pictures of the blood-spattered interior of Chris' Lamborghini). From Janet Charlton's Hollywood:
Chris Brown hasn’t heard the last of Wrigley Doublemint Gum.  He had a very lucrative contract with Wrigley and his ad campaign was not only successful, it produced his hit song “Forever.” Chris had apparently signed up for another five year stint with Wrigley and finished a number of commercials when the Rihanna incident happened. Wrigley pulled his ads and fired Chris. Now they are said to be preparing to sue Chris for all the money they lost due to his bad behavior. They spent big bucks on ads featuring Chris along with other celebrities like JayZ and Mariah Carey. Since Chris was in them also - everything had to be ditched. Wrigley is mad and we hear they hope to recoup the money Chris caused them to lose with a big fat lawsuit.
It seems like the whole world is piling on Chris because of one tiny momentary lapse in judgment. Call me cynical, but I think race has something to do with it. Don't believe me? Explain to me how Ashton Kutcher's career took off after he got caught with that shipping container full of young Asian sex slaves.

UPDATE: I've just been informed by Ashton's lawyer (very handsome and well-dressed by the way), that Ashton was actually never caught with a shipping container full of young Asian sex slaves. Weird. I could have sworn that happened. My bad.

    I believe dat every body need to mine there own business because if it was u u will be getting mad n chris should keep his held up i never let no body put him down. LOVE U CHRIS

  • tiffany

    man half of yall aint got a damn clue about b-cuz i gurantee dat if the media & the press neva found out about dis rhianna's ass would still be with him,they were seen 2gether shortly after the incident.. i think if u dont know what happen u should remain quiet. b-cuz if r- kelly can hav sex with a lil girl an still make mad hits and whitney can be a damn crack head for years an have a hit album after cant nobody in this world tell me chris cant bounce back frm this.to this day im still fans of both chris an rhianna they both have amazing talent,all of this is apart of life you have 2 liv n learn.he grew up in an abusive home an its easy 4 those of you who've never been in this situation 2 pass judgement and say that should give him reason 2 b different,but thats not the case statistics show that once your raised in a voilent home your wayy more likely to become violent... so wat yall need to do is get your facts rite cuz im sure if some of yall was to bitch slap your b-friends he'd whip your ass 2...lmao....

  • kayekie

    I think that everybody should leave chris brown the fuck alone. We dont kno what the fuck rhianna did to him physically. Her five headed ass fucked his career up. I knew she was trouble for him. I never liked the fact that he was dating her. Dont get me wrong, i am totally against any man putting his hands on a woman but rhianna could have stopped all of this shit from fuckn up this boys career. After all she did forgive him and went back to him. But then her trifflin ass testified against him. Everybody makes mistakes. There are so many artists of all kinds who have fucked up like this but no one has been in the spotlight about it like chris. They even accepted R. Kelly back w open arms after wat he did was far worse than Chris. Don't worry Chris. This too shall pass and tell them mothafuckas, even Rhianna hoish ass to suck on it! U still number one in my book. U r the closest thing to michael that the world will ever see so they need to leave u alone!

    Nice spelling throughout - you bunch of 'tards. The guy is a talentless loser. I agree with the hilarious "left along - on a tiger infested island"... Thanks for the rabid (and vapid) comments - always good for a chuckle :)

  • Britt

    You all need to get a grip. No he shouldn't have beat her but she hit him first. I mean if you woman enough to put your hands on a man then your woman enough to take your ass whoopin. Then she gave him a STD so obviously if he's not hittin on shit then she aint either. But he's a great artist and it doesn't make sense to keep talkin about the shit. All in all it still don't have anything to do with us so jus leave him alone. And to the lady Angela at the top, ignorant ass people is why the characterize black people as nigga. Wrigley shouldn't sue because they jus took doublemint off the shelves bet you didn't know that. Putting all the blame on Chris Brown but nobody is seeing what Rihanna did wrong. And I wouldn't want anyone to put their hands on my daughter but if she puts her hands on anyone I can't help their reaction. So teach your children to keep their damn hands to themselves. I'm a Chris Brown supporter to the fullest and he didn't beat my ass so it doesn't matter what he did to her cuz I'm not in that relationship. It's better ways to conduct yourself and he shoulda thought about his career rather than his penis burnin.

    HOW BOUT ALL YALL LEAVE HIM THE FUCK ALONE CUZ WAT HE DID HE HAD TOOO DO SHIT EVERYTHANG HAPPENDS FOR A REASONNN AND I LOVE CHRIS SOO I DONT GIVE A FUCK WAT YALL DUMB ASSES HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT

  • Char

    I feel so honored to be on here with all of you perfect people.

    None of us are perfect and you should all think before you speak, or write.

    Martina, hon, I don't think you should be speaking or writing or whatever...

    Anyway, most everyone deserves a 2nd chance and, if he is truly repentant, then it is over and he justs needs to finish cleaning up the mess.

    Reneging on his contract is, unfortunately, something he will have to work out with Wrigley. As for Rihanna, if they still love each other, he will have to work hard to win back her trust, and keep his hands to himself. Hopefully, they will both grow-up some after this and learn to control themselves.

    Best of luck to them both.

  • Barbara

    He is a loser no matter how much money he makes.

    He will lose his fame and money. Just a matter of time. Men who hit women do not change. Wish they did. I loved the one who beat me. I was beaten much worse than miss R. You live your entire life in fear of them. Even if you get a restraining order or move to another state. They will never let you go. Eventually they will find you. They never stop and neve forget if you cross them.

    Ok...first of all, please people, learn how to spell...

    Second: black, white, brown, yellow, blue, purple...whatever color a man is, this is about his ACTIONS, and not his race. If (how people say) she "started a fight", he could have stopped the car and got out, and called a cab or someone to come pick him up, or to pick her up. If she started hitting him, he could have pushed her off, and walked away. He didn't do that. Instead he beat the living crap out of her, while telling her he was going to "kill you when we get home".

    People need to realize that this type of situation should not be condoned, and people should not make excuses like a)this type of this happens in all relationships, b)he's really sorry and it's not his fault because she started it, or c)he's so talented and seems like such a good person and we should overlook this because of it.

    Yes, he is human, and should be given the opportunity to change and better himself. But I certainly would hesitate to date him anytime soon. His change may not come as soon as people think. After all, as a child he saw his mom get beat up, and still his moral compass did not let him know that beating the crap out of his girlfriend was wrong. Some men don't learn that what they did is wrong, they just learn that it sucks to get caught.

  • Lmfao

    I can't believe that some of the people who posted comments on this article actually think it's Rhianna's fault that Chris Brown beat her up. If you are willing to "forgive" Chris for what he did, then you should be willing to "forgive" Rhianna too. Obviously, none of us were present to witness what happened when these they got into this situation, but even if Rhianna did throw the first punch, there is no excuse for why Chris hit her repeatedly in the face instead of restraining her, which would have been much more acceptable than what actually took place.

    Domestic violence is something that has no place in this day and age, and to read what some of the posters on here think makes me feel like the general population of America is just as ignorant as they were back when African Americans and women still had no rights.

    What I would also like to know is how some of the posters on here even know what this article is about. Their spelling and typing skills are so pathetic, it surprises me that they even know how to read! IMO, if you're illiterate, it would be much wiser of you to keep your fat fingers away from the keyboard than to burden the rest of us with trying to read the ignorant garbage you post.

  • Chris Brown

    Lol, uppercutting women is srs business.

  • Mad AS H_____

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PEOPLE DONT FORGET THAT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS REAL !!!!! HAVING SAID THAT THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THAT YOUNG MAN HIT THAT TROLL !!!

    Spoken like the true moron you are. Despite your atrocious spelling and complete lack of syntax...er....let me translate that for you..yose aint not spelz gods ands cont makk lotz of wrds makk cents. Seriously, are you that dumb or just so lazy that you cant take the effort to at least sound like you have a brain between your ears. Why would Chris want help from an illiterate moron like yourself? And "kepp doing you shit," that's real good advice, thats why he's no longer holding contracts worth millions of dollars anymore and has essentially destroyed his career. Looks like he'll be joining you at McDonalds soon.

  • jackie

    he won't be the last young star to have problem with the woman in his life.other star have gotten help and all is forgotten so leave him a long as for the gum company he did quit you let him go. other star that are no long here their campaign are aired even when it found that there death was because of drug you know he is SO GET OVER IT

  • Chris

    Chris Brown is a criminal for assault and battery. In addition he is a jerk with a weak and poor self-image if he has to pound on a woman. Also, he is talented, but no SUPER talented or unusual. He will be forgotten soon because he has lost his cute appeal.

    Personally, I think any man who beats women and abuses them deserves to be shunned, put down and put into jail and major rehab. If he is really sorry he should donate some of his big bucks to STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN, AND MAYBE GO ON PROMO FOR THAT. I have a feeling he is not intelligent enough to do this, however. He is a dumbass.

  • tasha

    okay, seriously i just read almost all these comments and theyre so ridiculous.

    people saying how they love chris brown and dont care what he did, is pretty much like saying you dont care if someone beats you.

    sure, i like chris brown's music, but im not going to say i like him. we know nothing about this star.all we know is hes a young singer.and he made a mistake. yes, he has been paying for it, so all of you saying he has to deal with the punishment, he is. how come this is such a big deal, when this is going on probly right now so many other places. Yes chris brown made a mistake, but we dont even know the whole story. tabloids and magazines tell us what they want us to hear. they arent gonna make him look good, they are going to make him look like a complete ass. So everyone wasting your time arguing over this thing is pretty dumb. Thats just my opinionn.

  • Anonymous

    If we're all wasting our time arguing, then doesn't that mean that it was just as much of a waste of your own time to argue about us arguing?

    Fucking ignoramus.

  • strawberri1

    Chris and Rihanna are both kids. Sounds like they both got carried away and the whole thing spiraled downward. In the scheme of things...this is nothing, and unfortunately, it happens every hour of every day. The only reason why it is a big deal is because of the celebrity of these two.The court rarely does anything even close to this over "domestic" altercations of this type. I know of women who have been beated repeatedly by boyfriends and spouses and reported it numerous times and the guy got a court room lecture and a anger management class. It is what it is. Hopefully Chris and Rihanna both learned a lesson and move on. Do I think that the court and the sideline critics have been too harsh in this case? Yes I do - If you put every man in jail who ever beat a woman, major corporations would fold overnight for lack of leadership. I don't condone it - but crucifying Chris Brown won't change a thing.

    If he were the kid next door - none of us would have ever heard about it. American continues to be hypocritical and racist...and the beat goes on.

  • Anonymous

    If domestic violence is continued to be treated as if it were nothing, it will REMAIN to be treated as nothing. When the police are called to the scene and they merely shrug and give a lecture, and nobody is arrested, the victim is left to feel as those who are there to protect you don't even give a shit.

    Most of us who have been abused in the past were HOPING that because this was receiving such attention from the media that something more would have come out of it instead of the nonchalant treatment it did from the courts. It's bullshit that this continues to happen and something NEEDS to be fucking done.

  • lola

    THIS IS BULLCRAP IF WANTS TO Wrigley SUE CHRIS BROWN THEN COVERGIRL SHOULD SUE RHIANNA AND THEY SHOULD SQUASHHHH ALLL OF THIS ISHHHH AND CALL IT EVEN JUST LIKE ALGEBRA IF YOU DO ONE THING TO ONE SIDE YOU HAVE TO DO IT TO THE OTHER.LMAO

  • DMZ

    Why don't we all just leave poor Chris Brown alone, alone on a fucking desert island infested with man-eating TIGERS. That way the tigers could chew the shit out of this worthless fucking punk. If popping a cap in his ass wouldn't land me in jail, I'd do it. I HATE asshole that hit women, no excuses whtsoever. He is simply a FUCKING PUNK!

  • buddy

    I totally agree.

    Chris is a loser just like Kanya West the jackass. Boycott them both.

    Boycott them... I am not going to give them my money, these hoods don't deserve my hard earned money.



  • kira parker

    People these days will do anything for a dollar. Chris made a mistake yeah ok we know that already but he still has loyal fans and is still making plenty of money. I think Wrigleys should put the ads and commericals back on hell you neva know I might start chewing the gum again. Wrigleys did more damaged to themselves by firing Chris anyways. But it was a mistake not saying its ok what he done cause its not but he has never been in trouble before so damn give him a break and everybody saying its not a mistake and that woman are making it seem like its ok for men to treat us that way your crazy I was in a abusive realtionship with my kids father and I dont approve of fighting women at all but I stand 100% behind Chris.

  • Tyffani

    So as a victim of domestic violence, you would still support a company that doesn't take action against someone who beats the shit out of a woman.

    Good for you.

    Look, you f up, you pay the price. That was no "little mistake". He did a 'bad bad thang'. Now it's him who's getting the azz whoopin'. Turn about is fair play. Now he sees what it's like for someone to wield their power over him. Not like they messed up his face or anythang...um hmm. How ya likin that, Chrissy?

  • dumpling315

    wrigley's gum sucks & taste bad. i it was 4 chris b song "forever" u guy would even b on the map with this generation. every1 makes mistakes let him try 2 get his life back on track. also u everybody fail 2 realize 1 thing rihanna 4give & still wants 2 b with him. if he was an average joe, no 1 would even care. it ok 4 celebrities 2 rape & molested & kill (r. kelly, r. polanski, t. kennedy)not dont hit rihanna. this is not there 1st fight & it probably wont b there last. let sleepn dogs lie

  • Tyffani

    Jesus help you. Yeah, I'm sure he wants to get his life back on track, but he still needs to accept punishment for what he did. He barely got a slap on the wrist from the judge for his crime, so Wrigley dropping him from their label and suing for damages really isn't bad considering the amount of time he SHOULD have spent in prison.

    Part of getting your life back on track includes making up for the "mistakes" you made.

    And why is everybody calling this a fucking "mistake," anyway? Like, "WHOOPS, my fist ACCIDENTALLY landed in her face... again, and again, and again..."

    Seriously, girls. It's like you're saying it's completely acceptable to be treated this way.
