2 Chainz Faces Backlash For Reopening Atlanta Restaurant!

Georgia’s Republican governor Brian Kemp announced the re-opening of specific businesses in the A on Thursday April 24th despite people being exposed to coronavirus.

CelebNMusic247.com reports that one of the three restaurants slated to open its doors again is none other than Escobar Restaurant and Tapas Lounge, co-owned by rapper Grammy-Award winning rapper 2 Chainz.

Many medical experts, local politicians, and Georgia residents have denounced the move. Even the leader of his party, President Donald Trump, flip-flopped by publicly criticizing Kemp’s removal of shelter-in-place restrictions for nail salons, barbershops, tattoo parlors, and gyms.

Trump said during a press conference:

I told the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, that I disagree strongly with his decision to open certain facilities which are in violation of the Phase 1 guidelines… It’s just too soon.

In addition to the reopening of businesses in Atlanta movie theaters and dine-in restaurants in Georgia are set to start taking customers once again under certain conditions.

2 Chainz’s business partner and co-owner, Snoop Dillard, confirmed the reopenings with TMZ. Both locations reportedly experienced a 95% financial downturn during the COVID-19 pandemic and were forced to furlough around 80% of the employees.

The restaurants are said to be implementing safety measures – such as mandatory gloves for staff, masks for cooks, and single-use paper menus – to protect the public from spreading coronavirus. However, hookahs will be available.

But that means nothing to the many people still fearing for their lives. Many fans took to Twitter to call out 2 Chainz for the business move.
