Peeps speculated that the pop star's stage was axed because of his previous legal offenses. Chris made headlines in 2008 when he pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

When the rehearsal clip circulated prior to the show going live on television, other netizens begged the AMAs to consider allowing him to perform. However, that did not happen as Chris was a no-show at the lush event.

People on the internet wrote:

@With_Love_A_ said:

"I will not be watching if he doesn’t do this tribute! We have not had one in a while and in my opinion @chrisbrown is the ONLY person that can do this! This is really sad! "

@jony_bongs shared:

"Because he's been charged 3 times for beating women?"

@billyjohnsonjr posted:

"What the hell? What happened? I need to know. Chris’ team should have waited to leak this footage while the show was airing, using the AMAs hashtag."

@MelokuhleStokwe commented:

"Say what you want to say about @chrisbrown he is Talented. And for the @AMAs to do that is kinda wack for me. We needed this. I've always waited for this specific Tribute "

@dudeonthebay also said:

"Probably because a woman abuser was going to do a tribute for a child abuser. AMA finally woke up and said, Nah not cool."

@IvanIvez added:

"The industry will never forgive Chris for what he did to Rihanna 13 years ago. It’s so sad"
