Chris Brown's Career Gets Slapped Around?

As a result of his 2009 attack of former girlfriend Rhianna, Chris Brown has been barred from entering the United Kingdom, where he was scheduled for a summer concert tour.

Officials in England have refused to grant Brown a work visa, forcing him to postpone dates for an upcoming European promotional tour. Brown was scheduled to perform three of his Fan Appreciation shows in the United Kingdom this week, with a show in Glasgow on Wednesday night, followed by dates in London then two more nights in Ireland. All scheduled performances have been indefinitely postponed.

“We reserve the right to refuse entry to the U.K. to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns,” reads the official statement from Britain’s Home Office. “Each application to enter the U.K. is considered on its individual merits.”

Brown took to his Twitter account, tweeting this message that was quickly scrubbed by his handlers. “SORRY to all the fans in Europe! My tour is cancelled…I’m pretty sure y’all know. My entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY.”

This message was then taken down and replaced with the following: “Due to issues surrounding his work visas, (the) Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown’s Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed…Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support.”

Brown’s career continues its downward spiral since pleading guilty to a felony assault charge against Rhianna in February of 2009. He was sentenced to 180 days of community labor, a year of domestic abuse counseling and five years probation. Record sales have been down and concert attendance has been sparse.

On Monday, Brown was back on Twitter, whining/tweeting: “U ever feel the storm clouds are too thick for any sunshine to get through?”

Hey. Karma’s a bitch.

    Is finding out the price of assaulting a woman who has no way to defend herself against him.

    He's probably learnt his lesson - don't go out with a girl who takes off her stillettos and savagely beats you around the head with them while you are trying to drive...
    or if you do quickly pull the car over and get out -never ever use your fists.

    He's had quite a lot od counselling etc over the last year - maybe he deserves a second chance.

    Did Rihanna ever get charged with assult herself?

    EDIT - so it was alright for Abu Hamza to stroll around London for years while they scratched their heads wondering what to do, but a controlled promo visit from an artist get banned?

    I think this Chris Brown incedent is tragic. He was a young, riseing star with great talent.I almost regret that his career has taken such a turn but this bad behavior in men and women has got to cease. I am so glad that the "glorification of wickedness" is on it's way down.,some young minds may be saved. I don't think that Brown is a bad person-but look around, people are becomeing just a little more careful.EVerywhere.

    is an amazing artist. I love his voice, and I admire his dance skills. I think everyone should worry about their own lives insted of someone else's life. People make mistakes, get over it.

    What Brown did was inexcusable and hopefully a valuable lesson learned for him. Domestic abuse is not to be tolerated! That being said let the guy make a living.... Everyone makes a mistake when they are young.

    I don't doubt at all that he's sorry, the question is whether what he's sorry about is getting caught and having his abusive behavior shown to the world or whether it's that he's actually sorry that he abused her. Either way, the fact that he's temporarily sorry doesn't mean he won't do it again so an apology, and that is a statistical fact.

    We all learned something from this: If you're going to commit a violent crime, don't plan on working in the UK.
    Seriously though, I know his punishment from the rest of society has been harsh, but hopefully it will teach others that violence is never a good choice to make.

    Well all of us who have had a love one beaten up by a boyfriend and could do nothing about it because our loved one would turn on us hope Chris Brown justice (Karma) befalls all the abusers.

    Nothing wrong with not wanting undesirables in your country. William Ayers was sent back to the US last Christmas by Canada. He had a speaking engagment there. Canada has the sense to turn away domestic terrorists.

    Good. Abuse is never okay. I've made mistakes in my life, but none of them ever sent anyone to the hospital. Calling what he did a "mistake" is just offensive.

    i used to like him a lot .. until the rihanna thing popped up. i don't think he should get respect for what he did but i still like listening to his music and i try not to think about what he did during it and i enjoy it so i think people shouldn't be so judgemental, i mean if they enjoyed his music before then why stop now? it's not like you have to keep liking him but i don't see any reason why people would take the issue so personally? they'll probably never meet him and it's not like he looks like and is a pedophile like michael jackson and even with MJ people kept on listening to his music

    It's terrible how one event can ruin his entire career and life. I wish the best for Chris Brown on his time of need for support. I hope that he gets a chance to turn his career around and to keep having faith in himself since this a huge test and obstacle he has to overcome and once he overcomes this huge obstacle in his way he will come back ready to face anything and again I wish the best for him.
