Chris Brown may not be done with his apologies.

Over the weekend, the singer, 20, had a mini-meltdown online after he visited a Walmart in Wallingford, Conn., and didn't find his new album, Graffiti, on the shelves. "But they had Alicia Keys album ready for release for this Tuesday," he Tweet-griped. "BUT NO SIGN OF GRAFFITI. BS."

He exploded on Twitter in a profanity-laced series of posts. "I'm tired of this s----. Major stores r blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers. What the f--- do I gotta do." To the record business, he added: "The industry can kiss my a--." A visit with the Walmart store's management brought him no satisfactory answers, he says.

But the retail store giant released the following statement Monday: "We are surprised at the comments online. All Walmart stores nationwide have carried the CD since its release, including the Wallingford store mentioned in the post. This store actually sold through its initial shipment over the weekend. The majority of our stores today are showing they do have copies available."

As of Friday afternoon, Brown's Twitter account had been shut down, after a final thank you message to his fans.
