Chris Brown ‘Daily Show’ Appearance Canceled Due to Staff Objections
Chris Brown is persona non grata in the entertainment world, it seems. After having to cancel his upcoming tour of Australia after the country refused to grant him a work visa, due to his past assault on Rihanna, Brown found himself with one less avenue to promote his upcoming album, Royalty. But the tour isn’t the only promotional opportunity he’s lost, as he’s now been booted from an upcoming appearance on The Daily Show.
Although the plan had originally been for host Trevor Noah to speak candidly with Brown about his domestic violence past, in addition to promoting the new album, internal pressure from The Daily Show staff prompted a change in the lineup, as Nick Cannon filled in as the guest to promote his new movie, Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq. Apparently, the show’s writers really objected to having Brown on the show, despite Noah arguing for keeping Brown on the guest lineup.
Royalty releases Dec. 18, but outside of an appearance on The Tonight Show, it feels like Brown is losing valuable opportunities to promote it to a wider audience. I doubt this will be the last of Brown’s issues, at this rate, as it seems his career is facing a potential standstill.
But what do you think of the decision to cancel Chris Brown’s appearance on The Daily Show? Sound off in the comments!
