Chris Brown Concerts Advertised With Battered Rihanna Photos in Sweden

by at .  Updated at .

Posters featuring Rihanna's battered face have been plastered around Stockholm, Sweden, protesting Chris Brown's concert in the city November 19.

Point, Stockholm:

The posters feature the Rihanna photos taken by police after Brown's 2009 arrest for felony domestic violence. It's not known who is responsible for the "advertisements."

The objective, clearly, is to compel concert organizers to cancel Brown's show because of his violent past; this is not the first such opposition he's encountered.

Nor will it be the last, at this rate and given his rekindled romance with Rihanna.

In September, unknown parties in England adorned his album with warning stickers that read, "WARNING: Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women."

The stickers were removed quickly by HMV, but not before photos circulated.

Fellow musicians, such as Miranda Lambert, have also taken a stand against Brown, upset with the adulation of the Grammy Awards and Team Breezy.

The R&B singer remains toxic to many artists, even as his star keeps rising.

Last month, Irish hip-hop group the Original Rudeboys turned down an opportunity to play with Brown as special guests at Brown's O2 show.

"Even though it's a huge opportunity to play in the 02 with a major hip hop star, we are completely against Chris Brown's assault on Rihanna," member Sean Walsh said.

"In addition, with our latest single Blue Eyes being about domestic violence it goes against everything we are about and supporting Chris Brown would send the wrong message."

Bottom line? Many aren't willing to forgive Brown for his actions.

But Rihanna has. They collaborated on a new track, appropriately called "Nobodies Business," and have been spotted together frequently of late.

He may or may not make an appearance in the Rihanna "Diamonds" video, as well, but he's definitely making his presence felt in her life again.

For his part, he says he's trying to be a better person, though his actions often send a different message, fueling his critics every step of the way.

Wash, rinse, repeat, date Rihanna.
