For the first time since returning from his post-assault exile, Chris Brown is shutting up. The Graffiti singer closed his Twitter account yesterday after spending the weekend accusing stores of “blackballing” his new album in a series of expletive-filled posts. “I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT,” said Brown in his final tweet. “I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Walmart denied Brown’s accusations of a boycott in a press release. “All Walmart stores nationwide have carried the CD since its release, including the Wallingford, CT store mentioned in the post. This store actually sold through its initial shipment over the weekend.” We’ll learn just how well Graffiti did in its first week tomorrow, but it’s predicted to come in at no. 3 with around 100k copies sold (a little over half of what Rihanna‘s Rated R sold in its first week, but not bad, considering). Will Chris let the music do the talking from now on?
