Chris Brown's domestic abuse case, which dated back to 2009, once again plagues his music career. In HMV stores in London, copies of his latest album "Fortune" are marked with yellow stickers which give warning, "WARNING. DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM! THIS MAN BEATS WOMEN."
Gigwise, which obtains a photo of the labeled CDs, says that it could be the work of anti-domestic violence campaigners. To E! News, a spokesman for the store states, "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," the rep adds. "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."
Meanwhile, Breezy's camp has not commented on the incident that will surely remind people of his violent past involving Rihanna. The "Don't Judge Me" singer himself recently drew criticisms with a new tattoo on his neck, which features a battered woman. People linked the image to his former girlfriend, but his rep quickly debunked it as claiming it "is not Rihanna".
