Sticking it to Chris Brown

Don't all rush to the shops at once, but the singer Chris Brown – yes, that nasty chap who assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 – has a new album out.

Pleasingly, some savvy sticker bombers have taken offence to this and slapped stickers reading "Warning – Do not buy this album! This man beats women" on copies of Brown's record. Excellent work on their part, we say, and it's all the better because until now most sticker bombing has been funny but rarely political. Now the counter-culture label printers have got serious. And they couldn't have chosen a more unpleasant man to start with.
