We can safely say the record company was not behind this move.

OK! GALLERY: CHRIS BROWN CELEBRATES THE NEW YEAR WITH A KISS FROM KARRUECHE TRAN

Today customers at HMV stores in London tweeted pictures of Chris Brown's new album, Fortune, with a handy advisory sticker which reads: WARNING! Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women.

A pretty straightforward — not to mention accurate — description of the singer who plead guilty to felony assault against his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

HMV say they are mystified as to who's behind this, but guess it's some sort of anti-violence organization.

"It was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our views," a spokesman for the store told E! News. "It would appear a member of the public popped into one of our stores yesterday and stickered a handful of CDs. These were spotted and quickly removed, but, before we could act, the individual concerned must have taken a photo and sent it to the media. To our knowledge there are no further stickers in our stores now."

Regardless, the album hit the No. 1 Billboard spot back in early July but only sold 134,000 copies in its first week, which is much less than the 270,000 debut-week sales of his previous album,  F.A.M.E.
