In the early 1990s the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) began affixing “Parental Advisory” warning stickers to rap albums in response to an avalanche of complaints from parent groups. The stickers warned unsuspecting parents that the albums their children were buying contained excessive profanity and/or sexual references.
Chris Brown’s fifth studio album, Fortune, is being sold in London HMV stores with a warning label of a different kind.
According to Digital Spy, the stickers affixed to Brown’s albums reads: “WARNING: Do not buy this album! This man beats women.”
