December 2009: Graffiti-gate

Following a brief, perfunctory round of public apologies for violently beating, choking and biting Rihanna on their way to that year's Grammy's ceremony, Brown dropped a new album in December 2009, Graffiti. After going into a Walmart and not seeing it on the shelves, Brown tweeted, "I'm tired of this shit. Major stores are blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to customers. What the fuck do I gotta do..."

Walmart officials responded that they were carrying it but that stores were actually selling out (ugh), but Brown didn't really recant. Instead, he tweeted, "I'm not biting my tongue about shit else ... the industry can kiss my ass," and his fans started a #graffitionracks campaign to get his album in more stores. The album itself received mostly terrible reviewed and sold a disappointing 341,000 copies, and Brown temporarily deleted his account soon after.
