Chris Brown's "Fortune" Album Being Sold With 'Woman Beater' Warning Signs
The dark mistakes of Chris Brown's past have once again started to trouble the present of his music career. The R&B superstar, who infamously assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 but graciously accepted all the resulting legal consequences, released his fifth studio album titled "Fortune" earlier in the summer.
While his American audience has largely forgiven him for his follies, it seems that such is not the case in Europe, or more specifically in London, where some copies of his latest disc are being sold at HMV stores with a yellow warning sticker that says: "WARNING. DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM! THIS MAN BEATS WOMEN."
Gigwise, who were the first to take notice of this, believe that some anti-domestic violence organisations could be responsible for these unauthorised labels.
When E! News contacted HMV for a comment, their spokesperson said: "It was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our view."
"It would appear a member of the public popped into one of our stores yesterday and stickered a handful of CDs. These were spotted and quickly removed, but, before we could act, the individual concerned must have taken a photo and sent it to the media. To our knowledge there are no further stickers in our stores now."
While the "Sweet Love" singer wants people to forget his past, his recent antic of adding the tattoo of a beaten up woman on his neck hasn't helped his cause at all. All it did was freshened up the Rihanna incident in the memories of his detractors and this sticker incident could be a by-product of that.
Neither Brown nor his representatives have so far addressed this issue.
