Georgia restaurant under fire for joking 'black and bleu' sandwich inspired by Chris Brown

A Watkinsville, Ga., restaurant, Chops & Hops, has come under fire for naming its Caribbean black and bleu sandwich for Rihanna -- referencing the abuse she received from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

"Chris Brown won't beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A," the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page.

The post struck a nerve with customers.

"This is the most disgusting attempt at humor I've seen in a long, long time," one person wrote.

The restaurant later backtracked, stating that the staff does not support domestic violence -- and that it will donate proceeds from the burger's sales to domestic violence charities..
