(Newser) – Can music fans get any angrier with Chris Brown? Now that he has tattooed what appears to many to be an image of a battered woman on his neck, people are attacking his CDs. "Abuse warning" stickers have been slapped on copies of Brown's latest album, Fortune, alerting consumers to the singer's history beating up Rihanna. "Warning," the stickers read. "Do not buy this album! This man beats women." The stickers turned up in London branches of HMV stores, reports the Guardian. "It was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our views," a spokesman for the store told E! Online. No word yet from Mr. Brown.
