Pleased To Have Spoken Too Soon, Pt. II

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?
