According to the New York Daily News, Chris’ camp was trying to secure an appearance on “The Daily Show,” and even though the host agreed to it, the staff eventually shut it down due to the singer’s assault on Rihanna in 2009.
The NY Daily News writes:
Chris Brown’s scheduled “Daily Show” appearance never happened.
The 26-year-old singer was reportedly listed on the show’s website as the guest for Tuesday night’s episode, but it was actually Nick Cannon who sat down with host Trevor Noah.
A source told the Daily Beast Brown’s spot was “cause for concern around the office” but Noah “allegedly hoped to use the interview to bring light to domestic abuse issues.”
Comedy Central did not release an official statement on the shuffle and Brown’s rep has yet to respond to a request for comment.
