Copies of Chris Brown’s Fortune album have been labelled with stickers warning potential buyers against buying the CD in UK stores as the star ‘beats women’.
The stickers have appeared in HMV stores in London, and are thought to be the work of anti-domestic violence campaigners. The stickers read: ‘Warning – Do not buy this album! This man beats women.’
Chris Brown has seemed to successfully overcome the domestic violence stigma after beating Rihanna into a bloody pulp in 2009 as the pair were en route to the Grammy Awards. He has recently been attempting to make up for his actions by visiting victims of domestic violence.
Speaking of his recent work with a US charity, the ‘Turn Up The Music’ star said: “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.”
Brown this week caused fresh controversy when he revealed a new tattoo on his neck. Despite denials from his rep, the image appears to show a woman’s face – beaten and bruised.
“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 spokesperson to US website TMZ. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”
