Chris Brown Bans Ignite Protest, Fans Launch ‘Vote CB’ Others Launch ‘Shred’ Campaign

When news broke of Chris Brown’s alleged altercation over the weekend, most knew the story was far from over. As it stands now, Thursday, Brown’s situation has ignited backlash at radio, previously held endorsements, and now protests ! According to Brown’s long running fansite Chris Brown Web, fans on its website are supporting the singer no matter what. In fact, the website is hosting a ‘Vote For Chris Brown’ campaign until the LAPD makes an official statement regarding Brown’s official charges that as reported early Thursday, are rumored to include ‘Attempted Murder’. Brown’s fansite, often connected with his fanclub, has launched ChrisBrown.FM which reportedly sends votes to radio stations throughout the country and also allows fans to purchase the singer’s hit single “Forever”. Unlike Brown’s fansite, radio station WBLI in New York is hosting a protest that involves the destruction of Chris Brown posters and CDs on Friday. According to the Long Island, New York radio station, listeners are asked to turn up at 10:30am Friday to shred the singer’s CD’s and posters in protest of his ‘battery’ allegations. Program Director Jeremy Rice says “We’re also pulling all of his music for all day Friday to support Rihanna, to take a stance against battering women”. Representatives for the station also point out that the promotion is a Valentine’s Day event to give jilted lovers a chance to blow off steam before Saturday’s ‘LoveFest’. According to a source taking part in the event, destroying Brown’s CDs and posters seems like a great way to vent frustration. As reported on Singersroom, Brown’s music has been pulled from at least six radio stations nationwide, a number that seems to keep growing as the weekend approaches.
