Chris Brown has a temper tantrum
You would think that when you have a conviction for beating your (now ex) girlfriend, you may want to be a little humble, repentant, and understanding that some people may not like you anymore, and that some stores may find it not wise to be seen to be stocking your record anymore.
Of course it could be seen as unfair because you’ve been to court, you’re “sorry”, you’ve taken your punishment, but it seems if you are Chris Brown, you have no humility whatsoever.
Over the weekend Brown hit out at Walmart on his twitter page, accusing them of blackballing him by refusing to stock the album. Brown’s profanity laden rants show the boy still has a lot to learn about anger issues and the consequences of his actions. (Images below are screen grabs originally posted on the Huffington Post)
Not only unhappy with his perception that Walmart had refused to stock the album, Brown also had a rant about them showing a perceived preferential treatment of Alicia Keys – who has not hit anyone it should be noted.
Since the outburst Brown’s twitter page has closed down (http://twitter.com/mechanicalDummy), and Walmart have disclosed to People Magazine that:
“We are surprised at the comments online. All Walmart stores nationwide have carried the CD since its release, including the Wallingford store mentioned in the post. This store actually sold through its initial shipment over the weekend. The majority of our stores today are showing they do have copies available.”
It should be noted that Brown’s latest album has sold fewer than 100,000 copies in it’s week of distribution. This is in comparison to Exclusive,’ which sold over 295,000.
As I said before Brown needs to exercise a little humility and breath before he rants, especially given his recent record.
