Chris Brown Calls out NBA All-stars and Ruffles for uninviting him at the event.

Chris Brown claims he was disinvited from playing in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game because of his past domestic violence conviction.

The singer who pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault for beating then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 took to his Instagram Story to share screenshots of emails he seemingly received from the basketball league, in which they discussed arranging his “travel” and “logistics” for the All-Star weekend, which began on Friday, February 16th 2024.

Chris claimed that he was told not to play because sponsor Ruffles didn’t want to work with him.

He then wrote in one post on his Instagram, “I was asked by the NBA to play in the all-star game this year! Only for them to call later and say they couldn’t do IT because of their sponsors like RUFFLES.

“At this point I’m sick of people bothering me and I’m tired of living in the past. I POSTED THE EMAILS SO YALL COULD SEE. (sic)”

The 34-year-old singer claimed the NBA still wanted him to be involved in some capacity, but he declined.

The sponsors told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column in a statement: “Ruffles sponsored last night’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, however Ruffles did not have any involvement in, nor visibility to, any player decisions or celebrity invite discussions.”
