Georgia Restaurant Drops Chris Brown & Rihanna Themed ‘Black And Bleu’ Sandwich
OK. I’m all for a good joke but this is on the side of crass, if you ask me. Chops & Hops, a steakhouse in Watkinsville, GA has recently dropped a sandwich they created, which was themed after Chris Brown and Rihanna‘s infamous 2009 domestic abuse incident, according to MSNBC. Called the Caribbean Black And Bleu sandwich, the restaurant takes numerous shots at Chris Brown in particular in the captioned description of the sandwich:
…@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for a award winning celebrity sandwich. Put your hands on this caribbean black and bleu sandwich. Caribbean spiced marinated sliced ribeye blackened then look out for the bleu cheese, sliced tomato, silver Lamborghini onions, and shredded romaine. Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A.
Wow. How low can you go? Honestly, they could have done without the celebrity reference, because the sandwich itself sounds pretty good to me but taking that extra unnecessary step? Bad form. After receiving a lot of critism on Facebook, where they posted the picture, the restaurant decided to take the the sandwich off the menu and released this back-pedaling statement below:
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.
