Georgia Restaurant Makes Joke About Chris Brown Beating Rihanna In Reference To Their Black & Bleu Burger
A Georgia restaurant is being accused of poor taste after posting a Facebook message about their Caribbean black and bleu burger that made reference to Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna:
A Watkinsville, Georgia restaurant, Chops & Hops, has come under fire for naming its Caribbean black and bleu sandwich for Rihanna — referencing the abuse she received from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
“Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page.
The post struck a nerve with customers.
“This is the most disgusting attempt at humor I’ve seen in a long, long time,” one person wrote.
“I’m not sure I would trust someone with so little judgment and decorum with food preparation,” another commenter wrote.
The restaurant later backtracked, stating that the staff doesn’t support domestic violence — and that they’ll donate proceeds from the burger’s sales to domestic violence charities.
Those are just a sampling of the responses though, many people protested that the comments shouldn’t have been taken so seriously. What do you think?
