Just one month after activist website Care2 launched its campaign to drop Chris Brown from his label, RCA Records, the petition has garnered more than 49,000 signatures.
The news comes after a New York Times report on a lawsuit from a woman alleging she, among others, was raped by a friend of the R&B singer in his home. The petition, however, was formed after photos were released of Brown with his hands around a woman’s neck.
“Brown’s dangerous history of violence against women has gone ignored for far too long. Brown is a threat to women and needs to be held accountable for his actions,” the petition reads. “Tell RCA Records to stop supporting a domestic abuser and drop Chris Brown immediately.“
