Nickelodeon stands by Chris Brown as nominee

Nickelodeon said it has no plans to remove Chris Brown as a nominee for its annual Kids' Choice Awards, despite the singer's felony charges for allegedly beating up his girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is nominated for favorite male singer and favorite song for "Kiss Kiss." Rihanna, who police say was allegedly punched, bitten and choked by Brown in the early morning hours before last month's Grammy Awards, is nominated for best song, too.

An online petition asking Nickelodeon to remove Brown and Rihanna as nominees had 4,655 signatures Tuesday.

"Like all our KCA nominees, Chris Brown was nominated by kids several months ago based on his body of work as a performer, and the kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category," Dan Martinsen, Nickelodeon spokesman, said.

Normally, I'd say that the man has a point (about the kid's voting) but it's a matter of the greater good in this case. You know that if this had been Chuck D (Public Enemy) or Dr Dre, their names would have been quietly removed already. Heck, 'back in the day' they wouldn't have even been an option for the kids to vote on in the first place due to their controversial public images.

This is not a worth cause for the spokesman to wave his banner over.

i wonder if he would still be the nominee if those same kids could vote again today.
