A restaurant in Georgia named Chops & Hops caught some heat recently for using Rihanna and Chris Brown’s domestic dispute from 2009 as inspiration for naming one of their sandwiches, “Caribbean Black and Bleu.” The restaurant even had the nerve to boldly display this on their Facebook page as well as directly tweeting Rihanna and Chris Brown on their personal Twitter accounts. As if this weren’t bad enough, check out the description of the photo of the sandwich.
Well we were going to do @TimTebow today but decided to trade for a sure thing this week. Instead @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.
The restaurant has since issued an apology and has since removed the sandwich from their menu according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. You know who else needs to issue formal apologies? Everyone with the iPhone’s Draw Something app–a game that’s almost like Pictionary–who thought that the easiest way to draw Rihanna would be to reference the Chris Brown assault. Domestic violence is not a laughing matter. Ever.
Yes, it’s been three years since that night that sealed Chris Brown’s fate as a monster. While it seems Rihanna has forgiven him, we’re still holding Chris full responsible for his actions.
Should Chris Brown still be paying for putting his hands on Rihanna in 2009? And is Chops & Hops’ “Caribbean Black and Bleu” in poor taste? Let’s discuss on Twitter @Rhapsodani.
