Chris Brown is still being haunted by his violent past with ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.

The singer, who plead guilty to assaulting Rihanna back in 2009, is scheduled to perform in Australia in December, but activists are fighting to have the singer’s Visa denied because of the 2009 attack.

On Thursday, the Australian Minister for Women, Michaelia Cash, said that the immigration minister “will be looking at this very, very seriously.” Cash added, “I’m clearly not going to preempt a decision by the minister, however I can assure you what my strong recommendation would be.”

In an online petition, activists state that they are “speaking out against Chris Brown because his casual visit our country would have enormous symbolic significance, which will only be amplified by our silence. 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. “

The petition reads, “If we stand by and do nothing while he performs around the country (even if we don’t have the faintest interest in Brown’s career or pop music in general) we are implicitly sending the message that if you brutally beat a woman, in a short amount of time you will be forgiven, or even celebrated.”

Breezy has remained mum on the latest incident and calls to the pop star’s reps were not returned.

This is not the first time Chris has been denied entry to a country because of his past. You might remember back in June 2010, Breezy, who was set to perform in several cities in England, was banned from entering the U.K because of his felony charge. “We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense,” Barbara Woodward, director of the UK border agency’s international group, said. “Public safety is one of our primary concerns.”

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
