Days after Chris Brown took to his Twitter page accusing stores of “blackballing” his new album, “Graffiti,” the singer’s account was deleted after he left a final message to his fans.
“I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT,” said Brown’s final tweet, posted Monday afternoon. “I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Over the weekend, Brown went on a tirade after he visited a Wal-Mart store in Connecticut and didn’t see his album on shelves.
“The didnt even have my album in the back … not on shelves, saw for myself,” he tweeted.
Brown said he spoke to the manager, who had no answers.
“the manager told me that when there are new releases its mandatory to put em on the shelves. BUT NO SIGN OF #GRAFFITI. BS,” he tweeted.
He continued to say that Alicia Keys’ new album was stocked and ready for release, though it wasn’t due out until Tuesday.
[12:22 p.m. – 12/14/2009] – Chris Brown Complains On Twitter That Stores Won’t Stock His Album
Chris Brown’s first new album since the singer pled guilty to a February assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna was released last week, but some retailers aren’t carrying it.
Brown lashed out at those retailers that aren’t stocking “Graffiti” via his Twitter feed, and he’s not just angry at stores, he’s angry at the industry as a whole.

He followed that up minutes later with ”WTF… yeah i said it and i aint retracting s***.”
At 3:12 p.m., he stated the obvious: “im not biting my tongue about s*** else… the industry can kiss my ass.”
