Restaurant Unveils, Quickly Rethinks Chris Brown and Rihanna-Inspired "Black & Bleu" Burger

This is worse than that Chris Brown superhero cartoon.

A Watkinsville, Ga., steakhouse is feeling serious heat after promoting its "black and bleu" ribeye sandwich as being inspired by Chris Brown's beatdown of Rihanna.

We kid not, they really promoted the thing that way.

Chops & Hops put up a notice last week on the eatery's Facebook and Twitter pages announcing the newly-created sandwich, available for one day only.

A heavy dose of ribeye topped with blue cheese, sliced tomato, "silver Lamborghini" onions and shredded romaine. The restaurant's posting said:

"@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for an award winning sandwich ... Chris won't beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A."

Mmmyeah. Shockingly, some customers weren't fans.

Considering Rihanna was assaulted in a Lamborghini, to the point where she sustained felony-worthy black and blue bruises, probably not the best PR stunt.

Not that Richard Miley is apologizing. On the contrary!

"I was not trying to make a joke of domestic violence, just bringing light to the situation through food," he said. "I do not regret doing it. I don't regret anything."

However, the restaurant set the record straight on Saturday with a follow-up Facebook post saying it takes the issue of domestic violence seriously.

"The owners of C&H would like to make sure everyone knows that we and our staff DO NOT SUPPORT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Many of us have been affected by domestic violence in some manner and realize that this is no joke," read the message.

It went on to state that Chops & Hops plans to donate all proceeds from burger sales to Project Safe Team 6, an anti-domestic violence charity.

Probably not necessary to joke about in the first place, but that's nice at least. He did not say if they are planning a Karrueche Tran-themed Asian dish.
