Chris Brown fired as Wrigley spokesman

Posted on

Reuters reports that Wrigley, the chewing gum maker, terminated Chris Brown’s contract to appear in the company’s commercials, following the singer’s guilty plea on charges of assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna. When Brown was first arrested in February, Wrigley said it was “concerned,” but the company waited until the case was resolved until it made its final decision to end the relationship with Brown.
