Chris Brown removes name from Kids Choice Awards
NEW YORK – There won't be any awkward Chris Brown moment at the Kids' Choice Awards — the embattled pop star has withdrawn his name from the ballot.
Brown had been nominated for favorite male singer and favorite song for "Kiss Kiss" at the March 28 awards show on Nickelodeon. The nominations came shortly before his arrest for allegedly attacking girlfriend and fellow pop star Rihanna.
A petition had been circulated to take his name off the ballot, but Nickelodeon said yesterday he was still on. On Wednesday, Brown decided to take his name out of consideration.
In a statement, his representatives said while Brown would like to speak directly to his fans, he can't because of his criminal case.
He thanked his fans for their support.

Niambi Jarvis wants you to know about the following
This was forwarded by the Chair of our Public Safety Committe, Commissioner Whiting.
Please call or write Kraft Foods, who is sponsoring the Kid's Choice Awards on March 28th and the Nickelodeon channel, they have REFUSED to remove Chris Brown as a nominee. They stated that they kids nominated him prior to the assault & if they don't want to vote for him they don't have to.
As a reponsible network you would think they would REMOVE him as he has been charged with 2 felony domestic violence charges and they are the adults in this case and not leave it up to our children.
So I took it a step further and contacted the shows sponsors, Kraft / Capri Sun and Kraft was not happy with my call so I think if we the community put pressure on them, they as the sponsors will remove Chris Brown.
PLEASE PLEASE CALL KRAFT FOODS
CALL BOTH NUMBERS IF YOU ARE ABLE
