Chris Brown’s Album Sold With Abuser Sticker In U.K.
It’s been years since Chris Brown’s infamous domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, but it’s clear that his violent actions will follow him to the grave. But, for now, his tragic mistake is following him all around British record stores as reports claim that several of his new Fortune CDs have been spotted in HMV stores with an unapproved domestic abuse warning.
According to Gigwise, a shopper in London photographed an entire row of Fortune CDs in HMW that were marked with stickers that read, “Warning — Do not buy this album. This man beats women!”
It’s unclear how the stickers got on the albums, but it’s believed that the warning labels are the work of an anti-domestic violence group rather than the retailer.
Last week, Brown came under fire for his violent past when the media picked up on his new neck tattoo, which many believed to be the battered or decayed face of Rihanna. However, Brown and his rep denied the claims, saying it was inspired by a MAC ad and the Mexican holiday.
“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” said Brown’s rep. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”
The singer, who’s been visiting victims of abuse and working with the “Turn Up The Music” foundation, recently explained that he’s been working hard to redeem himself in the eyes of the public.
“It’s in my heart to show my fans, my friends and family and the families at Jenesse who stood by me they were right to give me another chance. I’m working hard to make them proud,” he said.
Well, unfortunately, it seems like Brown’s work may never be done and this isn’t the first time Brown has been publicly slammed. Check out some more of Brown’s battles below.
