Congratulations to Guyana. South America’s only English speaking nation can now officially say it has more integrity than the people who run the Grammys, although that may be damnation by faint praise. At any rate, concert promoters in the country were forced to cancel a scheduled Chris Brown show after protests by women’s groups and politicians.
Mr. Brown was scheduled to headline a Dec. 26 show. But women’s groups and opposition lawmakers objected. The concert promoter, Hits and Jams Entertainment, said on Thursday that Mr. Brown had backed out of the contract, citing the protests.
Let this be a lesson to all of you. Don’t upset the Guyanese.
