Jay Z did not decide to part ways with Barneys after two Black people were racially profiled for shoplifting, but he did decide to cancel the kick-off party to celebrate the collaboration between the hip-hop star-turned-mogul and the high-end retailer.
Both shoppers – including one from Corona – claim they were racially profiled by the NYPD and Barneys’ employees after buying pricy items for the store.
The party was to take place on Nov. 20 at the Madison Avenue flagship store in the City, but Barneys issued a statement that said the event has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.
No one is sure if the party was canceled due to the hefty legal mix up or if Jay Z just isn’t in the mood to party.
Regardless, it seems many are still fired up about Jay Z’s clothing line venture with Barneys, so maybe this is just another way to lay-low.
Being that Jay Z is from Brooklyn and he continuously reps New York City, this isn’t a good look for him.
While Jay Z may not be popping molly, but rocking Tom Ford, we hope he can also stand true with his Black fans.
