Chris Brown Deletes His Twitter: Blames Wal-Mart For "Hiding" His CDs In Stores!

On Friday, I seen Chris blowing off some steam in a rant on Twitter. When I heard news of his Twitter account being deleted I had a hunch this had something to do with it...Mind you, I personally think Chris should have deleted it a long time ago, or had his people handle the account because this is NOT his 1st rant, and considering his position with the public, he may want to keep all of that to a minimum...With that being said, check out what Chris was ranting about...

"I'm tired of this (crap). Major stores [are] blackballing my CD. Not stockin' the shelves and lying to costumers. What the (eff) do I gotta do . . ."

"WTF . . . yeah I said it and I ain't retracting (crap). I'm not biting my tongue about [this] (crap) . . . the industry can kiss my ass."

"For those people who [are] constantly tweeting me with bull(crap) . . . hop off my ****. [Your] life is pointless. For the young fans: Honestly, sorry for all the cursing. All my [real] fans: Love you . . . [thanks] for everything."

Then, on Saturday night, he added a few messages, after he personally went to a Wal-Mart in Connecticut and couldn't find his album anywhere. He said, quote:

"Just was at Wal-Mart in Wallingford CT (he posted the entire address) they didn't even have my album in the back . . . [or] on shelves, saw for myself. We talked to the managers and they didn't even know anything. Wow!!!"

"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."

Wal-Mart hasn't officially commented on this . . . and neither has any other retailer that is allegedly "blackballing" Chris. (--It sounded like Chris was referring to more than just Wal-Mart, but we haven't heard the names of any other stores.)

But if Chris' album IS being intentionally kept out of stores, chances are it has something to do with the fact that Chris is a convicted woman beater.

A "sales associate" named Gerald Blodgett says, quote, "We're sold out of it. We did have it in stock, but we sold out completely as soon as it hit the shelves."

Wal-Mart also released a statement . . . saying, quote, "We are surprised at the comments online. All Wal-Mart 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."

Of course, in this case, Chris should have been GLAD the store didn't have his CD.

Especially since it's NOT selling at a lot of stores. "People" conducted their own investigation and according to their research, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Trans World and Newbury Comics stores nationwide had "Graffiti" in stock.

Many of those stores reportedly said sales had been a lot slower than expected . . . and that Chris' label, Jive Records, had over-shipped the CD to retailers.

Before its release, it was expected to sell between 150,000 and 175,000 copies, but early estimates show that it only sold around 100,000 copies.

Meanwhile, there's also a new group on Twitter called #graffitionracks, where fans are tracking whether or not "Graffiti" is available at their local stores.

People are posting pictures of "Graffiti" on the shelves . . . talking about the album . . . encouraging people to buy it . . . and posting domestic violence statistics.


What do you think? Do you think Chris has a right to whine about his album not being on shelves? Have you personally noticed "Graffiti" being missing from one of your local stores?

Or is Chris just being defensive since he was convicted and feels people are "out for him?"
