Chris Brown an Awful Kid's Choice?

Despite allegedly engaging in some very un-family-friendly behavior, Chris Brown is still a contender for Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards.

When it comes to being a teen role model, lately Chris Brown falls short. The 19-year-old Radio Disney sensation was recently charged with beating up his girlfriend Rihanna -- although, according to reports the couple has reconciled.

It's the kind of tawdry story parents often use as a cautionary tale, and is hardly behavior that should be rewarded. Yet the children's network Nickelodeon still plans to feature Brown in their upcoming Kid's Choice Awards.

Parents, particularly moms in the blogsphere are voicing their disapproval. Twitter and message boards have been inundated with calls for Nickelodeon to remove Brown from the award ballots. Both Rihanna and Brown are up for multiple awards.

Nickelodeon executives, however, stand by their decision."Like all our KCA nominees, Chris Brown was nominated by kids several months ago based on his work as a performer, and the kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category," Nickelodeon said in a statement.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Cara Gardenswartz questioned Nickelodeon's decision to keep Brown on the ballot. "Nickelodeon is an adult-run network that is saying we are letting the kids decide. They are saying we don't need adults to step in and say that this is inappropriate," Gardenswartz said. "It's setting a horrible precedent and it's damaging. Kids can't differentiate between [Brown's] actions and his songs."

Despite Nickelodeon's determination to go ahead as if nothing has happened, an online petition has been circulating to remove both stars ballots. "We are appalled that Chris Brown and Rihanna are still listed as a nominees on the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards show."

The petition explains why Rihanna, the victim of the alleged abuse, should also be removed because she "refused a no-contact order and plans to continue the relationship in spite of [an alleged] violent attack by Brown."

What's making the toxic union of Brown and Rihanna even more troubling is the recent report that the couple are recording a song together. According to the Insider, "The seemingly reconciled duo have been working on a duet that Brown is hoping to include on his new album."

Your blog is fine. I just want to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say —which I think is really important. I dont know if you didnt think that your words could hold everyones attention, but you were wrong.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
