Rihanna-themed Menu Item Sparks Outrage
March 26, 2012 by staff
Rihanna-themed Menu Item Sparks Outrage, Rihanna and Chris Brown’s recent controversial “Birthday Cake” song now feels tame compared to another food-associated tie-in for the former couple. On Friday, Chops & Hops restaurant in Watkinsville, Ga made the pop singers an item on its weekly celebrity-themed special of the day. Their burger is called the Caribbean Black and Bleu Sandwich.
In a posting on the Chops & Hops Facebook and Twitter pages, executive chef and owner Richard Miley, makes a correlation to the sandwich and Brown’s 2009 assault on Rihanna: “Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and end with A.”
The sandwich prompted coverage from major news outlets and received mixed reaction online.
Ricky Roberts said he was shocked by the promotion. “I really can’t believe this,” he wrote on Chops & Hops’s Facebook page. “Making light of domestic violence to sell a damn sandwich!”
L. Antionette, however, found the joke funny. “Lol some restaurant made a burger after Chris Brown and Rihanna. Called the ‘Caribbean Black & Bleu’ cleverrrrrr,” she wrote on her Twitter page.
