Wrigley's Gum Suspends Chris Brown Commercials
Due to Sunday's felony charges against R&B artist Chris Brown, Wrigley's has told "Extra" that they plan to "suspend" the gum commercials featuring the singer. Chew on that.
Wrigley released the following statement to "Extra" regarding Brown: "Wrigley is concerned by the serious allegations made against Chris Brown. We believe Mr. Brown should be afforded the same due process as any citizen. However, we have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved."
Chris originally penned his smash hit "Forever" for a Wrigley's Doublemint commercial. The song, later lengthened by Brown, went on to top the Billboard charts.
