A restaurant in Georgia has pissed people off by promoting their 'Black and Bleu' sandwich's inspiration was the beating Rihanna had at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Can you f*cking believe that? How dumb do you have to be to think that is funny, or is this just a ploy to get their name in the headlines? Makes you wonder doesn't it?
The Facebook page of the Chops & Hops restaurant posted a picture of the sandwich with the caption:
"@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for a (sic) award winning celebrity sandwich. Put your hands on this caribbean black and bleu sandwich."
"Chris Brown won't beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A," the post said.
So in addition to being highly ignorant they have poor grammar. Locals weren't too impressed with them so the restaurant issued an apology:
The owners of C&H would like to make sure everyone knows that we and our staff DO NOT SUPPORT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Many of us have been affected by domestic violence in some manner and realize that this is no joke.
We have been involved in fundraising for Project Safe Team 6 and we fully intend on donating proceeds (times 6 – in honor of Team 6) from the sales of the burger. C&H continues to strive for a community driven, family oriented, great food and great service environment. We will continue to be involved in our community fundraising and charities near and dear to our hearts.
That's lovely and all but clearly someone in their organization (and let's face it I doubt a waiter or waitress is updating their Facebook page) thought it was clever at one point.
