After one potential customer inquired about the race of the owners behind ‘AB to Jay-Z‘ so she could know who she’s supporting, the response she received was less than satisfying. Once the brand caught wind that the exchange was circulating via social media, they quickly made attempts to “pretty up” their statements. But it was too late.
To make matters worse, photos are circulating from a party in 2008 of the owner Danny Chiha and his associates wearing blackface.
