Chris Brown checked in with his Twitter followers, angry with retailers for refusing to stock his new album ‘Graffiti’, eventually deleting the “MechanicalDummy” account (which was a verified Twitter account) when media outlets began reporting on his tirade. Brown writes:
I’m tired of this sh**. Major stores are blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to customers. What the fu** do I gotta do…
WTF… yeah I said it and I ain’t retracting sh**
I’m not biting my tongue about sh** else… the industry can kiss my ass

For those people who are constantly tweeting me wit bullsh**.. Hop off my ****.. Your life is pointless
For the young fans.. honestly, sorry for all the cursing..
All my fans… love you.. thx for everything.
JUST WAS AT WALMART IN Wallingford CT, 844 north colony.. They didn’t even have my album in the back… not on shelves, saw for myself
We talked to the managers and the didn’t even know anything. Wow!!! But they had Alicia Keys album ready for release for this Tuesday comin.
The manager told me that when there are new releases it’s mandatory to put em on the shelves.. BUT NO SIGN OF #GRAFFITI. BS
No disprespect to Alicia at all.. Just givin an example to who’s album is loaded and ready to go next week
I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT. I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Walmart responded with the following statement:
We are surprised at the comments online. All Walmart stores nationwide have carried the CD since its release, including the Wallingford, [Conn.], 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.
