Ladies and gentlemen, the protests have arrived.

You’ll recall my earlier concern that no controversy had arisen regarding the announcement of Chris Brown as support for T-Pain at his upcoming charity kick-off show, presented by my institution.

Well…it’s here!

Today, both a protest group on Facebook and an impassioned email from a student surfaced in our office, frustrated that FSU would get behind such an act on campus, and how that reflects on the values of the institution. I understand the concern, and really want to make sure that we are diligent in developing an appropriate response to those concerns.

Taking all input: what measures have you or your campus taken to address controversial talent? What have you told students? How did your administration feel?
