Sounds like a good old fashion case of sabotage in regards to Chris Brown’s new record, “Graffiti”. Upon noticing the absence of his new release at a New England Wal-Mart, here’s what he had to Twitter about it:
“the industry can kiss my a–,” and “im tired of this s–t,” he Tweeted at noon on Friday, adding, “major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. what the f–k do i gotta do.”
According to Brown, his new album was nowhere to be found in the entire store, and after making this startling discovery on Friday, he added, “yeah i said it and i aint retracting s–t. im not biting my tongue about s else…”
Sources say that once fans complained to Chris that his album was unable to be found at the Wallingford, Conn location, he decided to make a cameo appearance at the mega-chain to see for himself.
Suspicions were confirmed when the Graffiti artist himself did not find one single copy of the CD. To his displeasure, Wal-Mart “didn’t even have my album in the back. not on shelves, saw for myself.” He claimed to have addressed his concerns to management, and Tweeted that “the manager told me that when there are new releases its mandatory to put em on the shelves.. BUT NO SIGN OF GRAFFITI.”
Looks like the young fellow went from giving black eyes to getting blackballed, yet there is an air akin to pity that surrounds the situation.
Will Chris Brown ever be forgiven? Does he deserve public compassion? What say you on the scandal?
