Seems like Chris Brown’s abuse scandal will never escape him, or even die down. After his recently denial of entry to Australia, the singer seems to be on a quest to clear his name.
The singer spoke out on Tuesday, stating he wants to “prevent spousal abuse,” and use his personal past to educate others.
For those of you who may not remember, it has been six years since Chris Borwn was arrested for attacking his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. Brown has completed his probation and been an upstanding citizen since then, but the issue resurfaced this month after Australia denied the singer a visa to enter the country because of his past record.
Brown is supposed to tour in Australia, but officials in the country are hoping that they can officially ban the singer from entry.
“People need to understand that if you are going to commit domestic violence, and then you want to travel around the world, there are going to be countries that say to you ‘you cannot come in because you are not of the character we expect in Australia,’” Michaelia Cash, Australia’s Minister for Women, stated.
Brown is currently trying to appeal the country’s decision and is taking to social media to argue that his past is even more of a reason for him to be allowed entry into Australia.
And just how is he justifying that statement?
“I would be more than grateful to come to Australia to raise awareness about domestic violence,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “I’m not the pink elephant in the room anymore. My life mistakes should be a wake up call for everyone. Showing the world that mistakes don’t define you. Trying to prevent spousal abuse.”
Brown added, “The youth don’t listen to parents nor do they listen to PSA’s. The power that we have as Entertainers can change lives.”
