Chris Brown: “Much love LGBT”

Chris Brown

Chris Brown’s recent trip to Atlanta may have gone over well for those cheering him on as he played in a celebrity basketball game hosted by the city’s own ‘Southern Hospitality’ singer Ludacris, but it’s the event he didn’t make an appearance at that has outraged another demographic.
Brown apparently was a no show at an LGBT event during one of the biggest Black Gay Pride weekend celebrations in the region. Promoters claimed he was paid and took the money, but didn’t show up when he learned he would be performing for gay men.
The show was promoted by the Traxx Girls, a lesbian-owned entertainment company and set to take place at the Georgia Freight Depot in downtown Atlanta. Brown’s appearance was to come right before a performance of singer Teyana Taylor. However, since he was a no show, rapper Fetty Wrap ended up filling in the slot.
In addition to participating in some of Ludacris’ activities, Brown did appear the night before with Taylor as a part of the “One Hell Of A Night” tour that stopped at Aaron’s Amphitheater in metro Atlanta.
“You know it’s gay pride,” party promoter Melissa Scott told local media. “You knew you agreed when you sent the contract in and took the money.”
Fans were upset and went to social media to let Brown know.
However, he finally responded to fans via his Twitter page saying: “I wasn’t aware or informed of a show I supposedly cancelled.”
“I have nothing but love and respect for the LGBT COMMUNITY,” he continued in his apology. “The show was never confirmed by any of my people. So I apologize if the fans wanted me there. I honestly wasn’t booked for the show. Hopefully in the future we can do it right. Much love LGBT.”
Otherwise, all seems to be going well for the now redeemed entertainer who seemingly has been getting a lot of points in his female fan base for stepping up in the life of his infant daughter, Royalty. Brown has been spotted on several red carpets with the baby.
As for the Celebrity Basketball Game with Ludacris, attendees included his wife Eudoxie, David Banner, Tank, Lorenz Tate, DJ Loaf, Big Tigger, Trinidad James, Omarion, Bambi, Iman Shumpert, Teyana Taylor, Letoya Luckett, Angela Simmons, Naturi Naughton, Mack Wilds, and Monyetta Shaw. Brown and Ludacris served as team captains. This is not the first time Brown has participated in the Ludacris LudaDay Weekend events in Atlanta.
