(Newser) – After a curse-filled tirade against the music industry and stores “blackballing” his latest album, Chris Brown apparently came to his senses and abruptly quit Twitter yesterday. “I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT,” read his final tweet. “I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!” The departure came after a weekend of Brown and his fans comparing stories of stores not carrying Graffiti—or, as one manager allegedly put it, a CD by a “woman-beater,” CNN reports.
