The Guardian reports that a government minister in Australia is trying to keep Chris Brown from touring the country in December because of his history of violence against women.

Citing the singer's conviction for assaulting Rihanna, Australia's Minister for Women Michaelia Cash is urging Australia's minister of Immigration and Border Protection to refuse him entry into the country. She says, "People need to understand if you are going to commit domestic violence and then you want to travel around the world, there are going to be countries that say to you, 'You cannot come in because you are not of the character we expect in Australia.'" Brown has already been refused visas by Britain, Canada and New Zealand.
