Chris Brown Pleads Guilty
March 28, 2012 by staff
Chris Brown Pleads Guilty, The Chops & Hops restaurant in Watkinsville removed a celebrity “black and bleu” sandwich from its menu this weekend after owners suggested it was inspired by singer Chris Brown’s physical assault against former girlfriend Rihanna.
In response to Twitter postings that found the promotion in poor taste, the Oconee County restaurant also apologized and promised to give proceeds from the sandwich’s sales to a local domestic violence prevention group.
In promoting the sandwich Chops & Hops tweeted 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.
The “black and bleu” sandwich featured Caribbean spiced marinated sliced ribeye blackened, bleu cheese, sliced tomato, silver Lamborghini onions and shredded Romaine.
A manager at the restaurant Saturday referred calls to Chop & Hops’ owners. A message left for one of the owners was not immediately returned.
Brown was arrested after attacking Rihanna in his vehicle in Los Angeles on the eve of the 2009 Grammys. He pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to community service. The top superstars have since reconciled and Brown appears on a remix of Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” hit song.
An image of her injuries at the time showed Rihanna bleeding around her lips, welts on her forehead and marks on her cheek. Brown is still on probation for the assault.
“The owners of C&H would like to make sure everyone knows that we and our staff DO NOT SUPPORT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,” the owners said in a Saturday tweet. “Many of us have been affected by domestic violence in some manner and realize that this is no joke.”
