The Huffington Post reports that a Georgia restaurant was under fire for inventing the “Caribbean Black and Bleu” sandwich inspired by Chris Brown’s attack on Rihanna back in 2009. Chops & Hops posted on its Facebook page, “Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A.” In response to the outrage caused by the restaurant’s sandwich, and comments made on their Facebook page, they immediately pulled the sandwich and apologized to the public.
A Georgia restaurant named Chops & Hops came under fire this weekend after promoting a sandwich that its owners suggested was inspired by singer Chris Brown’s 2009 assault against former girlfriend Rihanna, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
According to the paper, an affiliate of the Watkinsville, GA restaurant tweeted a photo of what they called the “Caribbean Black and Bleu” sandwich, announcing that ”@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for a award winning celebrity sandwich.”
“Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A,” the tweet said, though it appears to have been removed from the restaurant’s Twitter account.
