Sometimes I'm a little slow on these things, but did you hear?
Nickelodeon is leaving Chris Brown's name on their Kid's Choice Ballot!!
What the heck? This guy beats up his girlfriend and is charged with two felonies, yet still has a chance of winning an award...from kids, who look to him as a model, none the less?!
Dan Martinsen, a Nickelodeon spokesperson, told the Associated Press that "Chris Brown was nominated by kids several months ago based on his body of work as a performer, and the kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category." I get that the kids voted for the guy to be on the ballot, but that was before he beat his girlfriend to a pulp. I would say his felonies and risk of going to jail should pretty much override their votes.
I always get hot when I hear about these kinds of situations. I'm sorry, but I don't care who you are...when you royally screw up, you need to pay. Consequences are part of life. Hence, my whole feeling about failing.
Twittermoms has began a petition to have Chris Brown and Rhianna removed from the Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards Nominations so if you feel as I do then go sign away.
So how do you feel? Do you think that Chris Brown should stay on the ballot? What about Rhianna? I have to say that I'm not 100% sure how I feel about her. It goes without saying that I think she is incredibly dumb for staying in a relationship with a guy who beat her up, but last time I checked stupidity was not a felony. What's your opinion?
