Chris Brown's Tat Resembles Beaten Woman, CD Label 'Beats Women'
Chris Brown recently got a tattoo that resembles a battered woman, and an anti-domestic violence group put a label on his CD that says "Warning: Do not buy this album. This man beats women."
Chris Brown insists that his new tattoo, that is adorned on his neck, is a depiction of a mexican sugar skull, a decorative sugar sculpture used in the Mexican culture in celebrations. However, it looks a lot like a beaten woman.
Customers shopping for CDs at HMV stores in London have reported seeing an "advisory label' on Chris Brown's latest album warning patrons not to buy the album because "this man beats women."
Brown was charged with felony assault in 2009 after he physically abused his then-girlfriend Rihanna. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years probation, as well as community service and domestic violence conseling.
It's unclear how the stickers got on copies of Fortune, Brown's fifth studio album, but Gigwise reports that there are believed to have been placed on the CD cases by anti-domestic-violence activists.
Despite negative reviews, Fortune, which was released in late June, debuted at number one on the album sales charts both in the UK and here in the US.
