Someone in charge of marketing for the Chops & Hops restaurant in Watkinsville, Georgia posted a photo of the sandwich along with a caption that said, “@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for a award winning celebrity sandwich. Put your hands on this Caribbean black and bleu sandwich”

The post continued, “Chris Brown won’t beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A.”

The locals didn’t find the joke funny.

“Never, never will we cross the threshhold of your restaurant,” one woman wrote. “You’ve really blown it with this ad. Domestic violence is not a joking matter and never should be made to appear so. Mark us down as 2 lost customers.”

“What a thoughtless thing to write,” another poster wrote. “Think about all of the battered women trapped in abusive relationships.”

The restaurant in turn quickly apologized and pulled the sandwich from their menu.

“What a thoughtless thing to write,” another poster wrote. “Think about all of the battered women trapped in abusive relationships.”

The steak house also said it would donate six times the amount of money made from the sandwich to Project Safe Team 6, a charity that fights domestic violence.
