Chris Brown Canned as Daily Show Guest After Staff Complaints

He also cancelled his Australian/New Zealand tour.

Published December 2, 2015

Last night, Chris Brown was slated to appear on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, and uh, that didn’t happen.

It was previously rumored that staff for the weeknight TV show had mixed feelings about featuring the R&B/pop star. It seems those reservations spilled over into the planning room and thus the star was cut and Nick Cannon was the actual guest Tuesday. There’s also speculation that Brown may have pulled the plug himself after it was reported that Noah would be asking him direct questions about his past.

This latest cancellation comes just after Brown’s One Hell of a Night tour promoter canceled his tour in Australia and New Zealand. That too was reportedly caused by CB’s prior transgressions, as he was denied a visa by the Australian government. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
