Chris Brown vs. Walmart: Blame Poor CD Sales on Apathy or Sabotage?


Last weekend, pop singer Chris Brown spent a lot of time re-Tweeting stories from fans who were claiming that his new album Graffiti, released on Dec. 8 by Sony (SNE) subsidiary Jive, was being held back from store shelves. Brown's domestic-violence incident last February with then-girlfriend Rihanna last February has polarized listeners and lit up message boards over the last few months, and Brown -- and his fans -- implied that his detractors were engaged in retail sabotage to take revenge against him.
