Chris Brown (b. 1989) is a Grammy Award nominated singer, whose top 100 hits include "Run It!", "Say, Goodbye", and "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)".
Brown turned himself in to police on February 8, 2009, following an altercation with his girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna. Brown was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats to Rihanna, and was under investigation for a domestic violence charge. In response, Sesame Workshop announced that "a 2007 Sesame Street episode guest-starring Brown is being pulled from future airings.", which also resulted in the song's release on Sesamestreet.org being removed from the website (the episode in question did reair afterwards, with the segment removed).
