Chris Brown Argues Against Australia Ban: 'Mistakes Don't Define You'

According to Billboard, after being officially warned by the Australian government of their intention to ban him from performing in the country due to his criminal history, Chris Brown took to Twitter to explain why he thinks he should still be allowed in.  In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, with his plea deal requiring community service, counseling and probation. Brown has since apologized for the assault and has even visited Australia for his 2011 F.A.M.E. Tour and performed at the Australian festival Supafest in 2012 with no visa issues.  In his first tweet posted Tuesday (Sept. 29), Brown states that he "would be more than grateful to come to Australia to raise awareness about domestic violence."
