Chris Brown deletes Twitter account after gripe against Walmart
After the controversy between Chris Brown and ex-girlfriend Rihanna, the American RnB performer now appears to have deactivated his Twitter account (@mechanicalDummy) after using it to complain about Walmart stores not displaying his new CD called Graffitti on their shelves, an accusation which turned out to be untrue.
The 20-year-old singer first expressed through Twitter his dissatisfaction against Walmart over the weekend when he was unable to find copies of his new album when he visited a Walmart branch in Connecticut. He would later get back to his Twitter account and tweet his complaints, among them: “im tired of this s—. Major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. what the f— do i gotta do…” and, referring to the music industry, “The industry can kiss my a–.”
However, in an official statement, the retail company defended its side:
“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.”
Oh, and if you’re wondering what Brown’s final message was before he shut down his rant-filled Twitter account, it was a very refined tweet that read, “I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT. I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!”
