Can Usher right his counterfeit wrongs?
R&B icon Usher Raymond plans to “make things right” after upsetting hardworking exotic dancers by throwing fake cash. The Sapphire gentlemen’s club owner in Vegas spoke out about the scandal that had the “Burn” singer trending on social media last night and stated that Usher wants to redeem himself. Las Vegas Review-Journal reports club owner Peter Feinstein said Usher plans to return to his establishment to undo some of the chaos caused by him throwing fake money on dancers at his nightclub over the weekend and “make things right” ahead of his Vegas residency, which begins July 16, but he didn’t specify how. The owner adds,
“I thought it was a joke when I first heard about it, I guess part of his entourage came in with a briefcase full of these ‘Ushbucks’ and they were passing them around. Now I’m getting all these calls from all these different news outlets interested in what happened.”
Reportedly the “Ush Bucks” were intended for promotional use and they were mixed in with real money being handed out to dancers all night, upsetting one of the entertainers who blasted the singer on social media. The entire ordeal turned into a viral joke, with people shaming Usher for seemingly “tricking” the dancers, but reps for the star denied he had any foul intentions behind it.
Yesterday, sources from Usher’s camp did deny not tipping the dancers at all, but did admit to throwing the fake bucks on stage from promotion — we’re guessing they didn’t think that out thoroughly at all. Do YOU think Usher is able to right how wrongdoing here?
