Customers shopping at HMV stores in London are being reminded what the rest of the world already knows: Chris Brown is not a good dude. Several people have reported seeing advisory label stickers on Brown’s latest No. 1 record, Fortune, warning them not to buy the record because “This Man Beats Women.”
HMV, of course, didn’t sticker the records itself: According to Gigwise, the warnings were placed on the CDs by anti-domestic-violence activists, who are out to call attention to the fact that Brown pled guilty to felony assault in 2009 after hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna. Not that Brown himself hasn't offered plenty of reminders himself, having just this week gotten a neck tattoo of what he says is a Mexican sugar skull—but which the Internet sure looks a lot like a battered woman—just before he visited victims of domestic violence at a charity event in Los Angeles.
