Chris Brown 'Fortune': HMV Bosses React To Album Targeted With 'This Man Beats Women' Stickers

Bosses of music chain HMV have spoken out to assure fans they had nothing to do with an anti-domestic violence stunt which urged customers not to buy Chris Brown's music.

Stickers appeared on a number of Brown's Fortune CDs in a London branch of the entertainment retailer with the message: "Warning. Do not buy this album! This man beats women."

The stunt is thought to have been carried out by anti-domestic abuse campaigners over Brown's 2009 conviction for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna, and HMV executives have now insisted the problem won't happen again.

In a statement, a spokesman for the chain says, "It was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our views. It would appear a member of the public popped into one of our stores... and stickered a handful of CDs.

These were spotted and quickly removed... To our knowledge there are no further stickers in our stores now."
