Chris Brown Says Goodbye To Twitter; Walmart Responds To “Blackballing” Claim

There’s never a right time to say goodbye, Chris Brown said in song once, but today was the day.

The singer, who’s gotten himself into a couple mini Twitter scandals since joining the micro-blogging site (we’ll never forget the “cornball” blow up of AMAs night), decided to pack his “Mechanical Dummy” handle away and delete his account.

His final tweet gave no reason for the sudden bounce, but offered an all-caps thank you to his supportive fans. These fans rallied with him over the weekend as he angrily tweeted accusations that major retailers, including Walmart, were “blackballing” his just-released album, Graffiti, by refusing to put it on shelves to be sold.

Walmart issued a statement responding to Brown’s twitter claims: “We are surprised at the comments online. All Walmart 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.”

Early predictions put Graffiti at around 100,000 copies sold in its debut week. Final numbers from Nielsen Soundscan are expected Wednesday.

For anyone finding themselves missing Brown’s twitter account, the good news is his Twitpic page is still alive — for now.

  1. See ya..Breezy!!

  2. douchebag ur music is garbage dont blame it on the stores for ur shitty sales.

  3. get off his back,theu villianized him,for a women beaten up it sure didnt take long for her to be photographed out and with a man no less.She is used garbage and a little dark,she had issues ling before she got with Chris Brown ,an abused women does not act like that or does she become even more sexual than she was before all this ever happened. Give me a break get off is ass

    • Buster Hyman says:

      So how do abused women act…your the expert cause you either are a chick that puts up with getting beatings (which would explain why you defend a lil Poosey) or your a dude that can only slap bitches around!

  4. Best thing anyone can do is delete a social networking account. Its easy to show how your feeling at the time with those sites without considering what will come out of it next. It wouldnt surprise me if organisations are “blackballing” like Chris claimed, but thats where they stuff up and take personal reasons in over just being plain professional. I’m a fan of both Chris Brown and Rihanna, so I have never taken sides in “that” incident and purely just see it as a mistake to which they will both learn from. People do need to move on from it. It wasn’t them who were involved. It was between Chris and Rihanna, so its there problem to sort.

  5. AFTER WHAT THIS INDUSTRY DID TO CHRIS BROWN, I’NOT GOING TO BUY ANY CD ANYMORE. THIS IS A KIND OF RACISM, WHY DO THEY HAVE TO PROMOTE SOME ARTISTS AND KILL OTHERS ? REVOLUTION

    • Say my name says:

      When you dont succeed play the racism card.
      No one was talking bout racism when he get the best male award @mtv.
      No his CD has failed hard in the charts (even R. Kelly sells 115000 copies without promo) he claims that he has been boycotted
      whats wrong with this guy?
      He flops cause his album sucks with his electro pop song…when he is supposed to be an R&B singer. What goes around comes around.
      Did he see Rihanna blaming someone on her flop?No but she did the right move and got a tatoo with “Never a failure always a lesson”

      But All CB can do is blaming everyone for his failure.
      He really needs psychiatric help cause he got more than anger problems he is crazy

      • Okay say my name you must either be a white person or just ignorant to what is really going on. The race card is being played. It gets played everday. Where else in America can someone like Klohe Kardashian buy crack cocaine on her tv show and still have a job. I couldn’t do that. I would get fired right away and then the police would have been called. The first minority president in years was elected last year and you had people walking around wearing shirts that said the white house is for whites. New York Times put out cartoons of a monkey insinuating that it represented the president. Don’t get me stared. Come up with something better than that!!!

        • lock Janet in a room w/CB says:

          Klohe Kardashian does not have a job, and she was buying the crack for her NBA star BLACK husband who does STILL have a job! The monkey in the cartoon was satiring a monkey that was shot and killed by police a week prior and comparing it to a badly writen stimulus bill…OBAMESSIAH did not write the bill, Pelosi and Reid did. So it would be calling PELOSI OR REID (both white people) monkeys! Once again Janet, the race card IS being played by over-reacting, thin skinned people like yourself and Bitch-Beater Brown with complete ignorance!
