Walmart Doesn’t Stock Chris Brown Album; Singer Throws Tantrum on Twitter

December 15th, 2009 by

www.clevelandleader.com – Chris Brown, who’s issues with anger led him to beat former girlfriend Rihanna, may need to head back to anger management classes once again. After visiting a Walmart store in Wallingford, Conn., the singer had a meltdown on Saturday after discovering they didn’t carry his new CD, “Graffiti.”
So, of course, he took to the micro-blogging site Twitter.com to tell the world:
“im tired of this s–t. major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. what the f— do i gotta do…WTF… yeah i said it and i aint retracting s***. im not biting my tongue about s else… the industry can kiss my a–.”
Brown went to Walmart after several fans told him that the stores were refusing to carry his CD. He also Tweeted:
“They didn’t even have my album in the back,” Brown spit of the Walmart. “not on shelves, saw for myself. the manager told me that when there are new releases its mandatory to put em on the shelves.. BUT NO SIGN OF GRAFFITI.”
The NY Daily News reports that Walmart isn’t the only store refusing to stock Brown’s CD. Popular music stores like Bleeker Music Store, Colony, and Other Music Inc. confirmed that they are not selling his album. Big chains like Best Buy and Kmart are selling his CD, but it doesn’t look like it’s helping sales much. The album has reportedly sold less than 100,000 in its first week. His second album sold over 295,000 in the same time period.
