Women’s rights groups in Guyana protest Chris Brown concert

Chris Brown may have only had tentative plans to perform in Guyana, but local protesters have no doubt changed his mind.

The 23-year-old rapper's rep has called a promoter "untruthful" for claiming Brown had cancelled a Dec. 26 stadium show in Guyana, following demonstrations by women's rights groups and legal officials over his 2009 beating of girlfriend Rihanna.

Whether or not the concert was confirmed, it seems Brown is unwelcome in the Caribbean country. He can add that to the growing roster of countries outside America that are boycotting him.

Guyana's move comes weeks after unidentified protesters put up posters around Stockholm depicting a battered Rihanna and asking for Brown's Nov. 19 concert in Sweden to be cancelled. The posters featured the police photo that circulated three years ago of RiRi's bruised face after the "Don't Judge Me" singer assaulted her.

Brown performed in the Scandinavian city regardless, though local paper Svenska Dagbladet refused to review the concert as a further form of protest.

And Brown hasn't been just meeting protests over his gigs. In September, an unidentified group in England surreptitiously vandalized a number of Brown's newly-released "Fortune" albums in an HMV with stickers reading, "WARNING: Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women."

"We spotted and removed them quickly but before we could do so the person circulated a photo to media," an HMV rep told the Huffington Post.

But even though Brown may not be unanimously welcome on the international stage, he still has one surprising supporter: Rihanna was photographed partying with her ex after his "Up Close And Personal Tour" gig in Berlin on Thursday.
