Bo Bice, some guy who was a finalist on American Idol and never heard from again, is claiming racism.
According to him, he was at a Popeye’s when an employee called him “white boy.”
“If tables had been turned and I used something as insensitive like that… I would be boycotted, people wouldn’t buy my albums.”
Yes, that’s why people wouldn’t buy your albums.
Maybe Bo should have gone to Bojangles. It’s always Bo Time there.
Popeye’s issued an apology.
“Mack II Inc. is very sorry that the incident occurred and for any pain or embarrassment that Mr. Bice experienced. The company does not condone the behavior of one of our associates and we took corrective action as soon as we were made aware of the incident. Also, we will require re-training of our associates to ensure this isolated incident does not occur again. In addition, Mr. Bice has been issued an apology by the General Manager. We value all of our customers regardless of race, religion, age, disability, gender, etc.”
The lesson? Don’t call Bo “white.”
(Ed. note: Bo Bice used to look like this.)
