The tweets were later deleted.

While the exact reason for his inadmissibility is unclear, Brown has had several skirmishes with the law.

Most infamously for his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009. He's also plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault for hitting a man outside of his hotel in 2014.

People were pretty impressed with the government's decision.

So, the border guards disallowed entry into Canada to someone with a felony assault record? That sounds like a great thing. #ChrisBrown
