Chris Brown Denied Entry Into Australia And New Zealand


Chris Brown was denied entrance into Australia and New Zealand, meaning he won't be able to tour the country as scheduled in December. An Australian immigration official told the Telegraph that Breezy's visa request was turned down because of his past record of domestic violence.

The decision came after a petition calling for him to be denied entry was set up by women's rights group GetUp. Brown has a few weeks to appeal the decision.

The petition said that failure to ban Brown would "send the message that if you brutally beat a woman, in a short amount of time you will be forgiven, or even celebrated."

"By turning a blind eye to his tour, we send a message to survivors of family violence that it's not that important and that you should just get over it," wrote GetUp on its website.
