Nickelodeon says it has no plans to remove Chris Brown as a nominee for its annual Kids’ Choice Awards, despite the singer’s felony charges for allegedly beating up his girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is nominated for favorite male singer and favorite song for “Kiss Kiss.” He’ll be competing in the latter category with Rihanna, who police say was allegedly punched, bitten and choked by Brown last month.

Editorial: The word allegedly is not from me…we all know the fool messed up and put his hands on Rihanna. So, nothing alleged, the boy is wrong and guilty.

An online petition asking Nickelodeon to remove Brown and Rihanna as nominees had 2,166 signatures Tuesday. Nickelodean says Brown was nominated for his work as a performer, and kids will decide who wins.

The awards are scheduled for March 28. [via]
