Record label Sony has apologised for increasing the price of two Whitney Houston albums hours after her death on Saturday.
The wholesale cost of the two LPs – Houston’s Ultimate Collection and Greatest Hits – went up by around £3 each, causing an automatic price increase on iTunes.
In a statement, Sony said the albums had been “mistakenly mispriced”.
It added the error was “immediately corrected” once it had been discovered.
Houston fans had taken to Twitter describing the price hike as “greedy” and “shameful”.
Record label bosses have always been nothing but greedy scum and always will be. They hiked up those prices just hours after Whitney’s tragic death thinking no one would notice but it backfired on them big time.
I bet they celebrate and rub their hands together with glee once news comes through that one of their acts has died. To them an artist is worth a lot more deceased.
Rest In Peace Whitney Houston.
