Chris Brown Endorsement Deal Popped By Wrigley

by at . Comments

He was on the bubble for awhile (boo), but Wrigley has officially chewed out Chris Brown (boo!) and terminated his endorsement deal following his assault conviction.

Brown had been a spokesman for Doublemint gum and his hit song "Forever" was part of Wrigley's advertising campaign. But now they officially spit him out (BOOO!).

Easy, Breezy

Following the singer's February arrest on suspicion of attacking Rihanna on the eve of the Grammy Awards, Wrigley said it was "concerned" but withheld judgment.

Maintaining that Brown, 20, deserved due legal process, Wrigley said at the time it was suspending its commercial featuring Brown, but declined to take any action.

But with Brown pleading guilty in June to punching Rihanna until she was bloodied and bruised, Wrigley said on Thursday it had "ended" its deal with the singer.

NOT DOUBLE HIS PLEASURE: Wrigley's wants no more of Chris Brown.

Brown agreed in his plea bargain to serve five years probation and perform 180 days of community service (serious, physical labor) in his home state of Virginia.

A charge of criminal threats was thus dropped and he will not go to jail.

Wrigley's disclosure came a day after a judge delayed sentencing at a hearing for Brown to make sure his punishment included hard labor such as road cleanup.

This means more likely to hear "Forever" as a wedding intro song than on TV, and that while Chris dodged the jail bullet, his wallet may take a hit going forward.

Two sides to every story; how can you judge when you don't know what happen. Beat her? Why don't somebody say WHY. Tell us what in the world happen.

Get over it alright, You all act as if Chris Brown did the unforgiveable. You know there are always three sides to a story his story, her story and the truth so please stop being so judgemental. How many of us have done things that we are ashamed of and wish we could take back. So what Wrigley go find another token to promote your gum. When judgement day comes I hope all of your slates are squeaky clean. There is only one judge of this kingdom we call earth and it's not you or Wrigley's. So Chris keep your head tomorrow the media will be ragging someone else.
