Anyway, Chris Brown may have to skip a scheduled Australian tour in December, as officials from the country apparently have a problem with guys convicted of beating up Rihanna.
Posters advertising Brown’s Melbourne concert were targeted by activists protesting the show, and at least one ad was replaced, after a sticker reading “I beat women” appeared on it, in reference to the singer’s 2009 assault on his then-partner.
“Decisions on whether a visa will or will not be issued are made after that timeframe and consideration of the material presented to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection”, Mr Dutton said.
The singer has been to Australia since the events in 2008, but the government has since strengthened its stance against domestic violence.
“I can assure you it is something that the minister (for immigration) is looking at” Cash told reporters saying she would recommend a ban.
Tickets for his tour go on sale tomorrow.
“People need to understand, 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 that we expect in Australia, ‘” said the minister for women, Michaelia Cash.
Cash was speaking alongside new Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull during a news conference, during which they announced a new set of counter measures that could help tackle the problem of domestic violence in the country. The singer has been banned from entering Britain and Canada in the past, and has already toured Australia since the assault conviction on Rihanna.
Chris was sentenced to a five-year probation and six months of community service by a court after admitting to the assault.
Brown was photographed in June having a screaming match with another ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, before pushing his way past her friends to get in the back seat of a vehicle she was in.
