BET Denied Chris Brown Opportunity to Pay Tribute to Michael Jackson


Chris Brown, Usher, Ne-Yo, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Dream were all supposed to be an active part of the Michael Jackson Tribute at the 2009 BET Awards show, but ultimately, Chris Brown was denied the opportunity to participate.

BET executives feared a backlash if they allowed Brown to perform, especially considering emotions are still running high about the Rihanna assault incident to which he pleaded guilty this month.

Brown and his handlers were said to have literally begged BET to reconsider. Insiders said: "Michael is/was Chris' idol and this tribute means the world to him."

Executives also feared that by allowing Chris to take the stage, his drama might overshadow the network's tribute to Michael Jackson. Jay-Z was also said to have played a major role in blocking Brown's participation.

Hey, what do you expect when you plead guilty to assaulting your superstar girlfriend?

I think Chris Brown is a good guy (maybe not boyfriend) but he's human, just like us he makes mistakes...People just need to leave him alone, stop judging and maybe he wont be soo mad and have to take "Anger Management Classes" But Anyways, I honestly think that BET should of let him particuape in the Tribute to Michael Jackson at the 09 Awards...its not like Chris got away with what he did, He's accepting the consequences. I dont care what anybody says, All i know is that "Im going to be on Chris's side, and others can talk their negitive stuff about him cause I just think otherwise."
