Welp Hov, what are you gonna do now???
Jay Z Facing Criticism For Collaborating With Barneys After Racial-Profiling Incidents
He’s got 99 problems and Barneys is a big one.
Jay Z is getting slammed online for his association with the high-end department store rocked this week by two separate instances in which black shoppers say they were profiled and mistakenly accused of theft.
The department store isn’t faring any better, with at least one online petition calling for a boycott.
The enterprising user behind the change.org petition is also selling “Barneys New Slaves” T-shirts with proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Club of America.
Even big names like Questlove, the drummer for The Roots, and Power 105 DJ Angela Yee are getting in on the criticism:
guess where i won’t be christmas shopping for mom this year. http://t.co/kJ1ugdOXXP #shame #Barneys
After all the isht that Hov has talked in the wake of his beef with Harry Belafonte, he better act accordingly and not only distance himself from Barneys, but denounce their brand and support the boycott.
