Chris Brown albums labelled with domestic violence warning sticker
Copies of Chris Brown's latest album were defaced yesterday (September 13) with anti-domestic violence stickers in Cambridge.
It had emerged that a number of his 'Fortune' albums at a HMV store in Cambridge had been plastered with the custom stickers, which told shoppers not to buy the album because of Brown's past.
The singer was convicted of assaulting then girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009, but has since worked with domestic violence charities.
The sticker, which is said to have been the work of anti-domestic violence campaigners, reads: "Warning: Do not buy this album! This man beats women."
A spokesman however for HMV told Pressparty that as far as they aware, the stickers have now been removed from their stores. He said:
"I believe it was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our views. 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 media. To my knowledge there are no such stickers in our stores now."
Chris Brown was recently involved in controversy when he appeared in public with a new neck tattoo that looked similar to photos of Rihanna after she was beaten.
However, a rep for Brown confirmed that the tattoo was a sugar skull design and had nothing to do with the 'Talk That Talk' singer.
