Restaurant under fire for Rihanna themed “Black and Bleu Burger”
A Georgia restaurant is taking heat after adding the “Caribbean black and bleu” burger to its menu, which it joked was named after Chris Brown and Rihanna, reports the New York Daily News.
“Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A,” read the Chops and Hops’ Facebook post about the new dish. Of course, Brown became infamous for beating Rihanna back in 2009, when they were a couple.
Outrage ensued, causing the restaurant to state it “does not support domestic violence,” yank the burger from the menu, and agree to donate six times the amount of the sandwich’s one-day sales to a domestic violence prevention group.
