“Chicken, get yo’ chicky hereeee!”….
The Roots drummer and current member of Jimmy Fallon’s house band, Questlove, snapped a picture of NBC’s Black History Month’s Menu in the cafeteria…
NBC is catching alot of heat for serving Fried Chicken, Collard Greens and Cornbread in honor of Black History Month. Once Questlove posted the menu on his Twitter page…the drama began!!!
NBC’s VP of Communications, Kevin Goldman, made a public apology via Twitter:
The sign in the NBCU cafeteria has been removed. We apologize for anyone who was offended by it.
Chef Leslie, who is black may I add, has been trying to implement a Black HIstory Month menu for years and after finally being granted permission, she doesn’t understand the controversy. Did you really find it offensive??? That was probably the best dang lunch the staff had all year.
