Slap women around and watch your CDs get similar treatment.

Copies of Chris Brown's 'Fortune' record, which recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, were slapped with an advisory sticker of a different sort at London HMV stores: The records were affixed with warning labels not for the foul language or questionable content, but because of the singer's murky, girlfriend-beating past.

A photo of the sticker that was tweeted out by a Twitter user showed it said, "Warning. Do not buy this album! This man beats women."

While it's not clear who's responsible for the karmic retribution, our money's on it being the work of anti-domestic violence advocates. Breezy famously beat then-girlfriend Rihanna before the 2009 Grammys, and even though he's been working with a variety of charities ever since and RiRi recently sobbed to Oprah that she still loves him, his reputation as a thug has stuck like glue.

Sometimes you really can tell a book -- or in this case, a CD -- by its cover.
