Jay Z’s Barneys Line Makes Over $1 MILLION, Despite Racial Profiling Debacle!

Jay Z's Barneys holiday collection was a smashing success!!

The numbers are in, and the numbers are HIGH!!

Yup, the profits from Jay Z’s Barneys holiday collection have officially been tallied!! And despite the racial profiling scandal the store faced upon the collection’s launch, HOVA’s goodies have pulled in over $1 MILLION in profits!!!

Partly BECAUSE of the turmoil surrounding the collection, 100% of the profits (plus 10% of Barneys sales the day the collection launched) will go directly into charity — meaning the Shawn Carter Foundation and all its beneficiaries are having a VERY happy belated holiday!

We could not be more thrilled to hear the great news, and we're glad Beyoncé's hubby was able to assuage the public's anger toward Barneys by helping them reform their unacceptable store policies!

Congrats to Jay and his collection's success!

    Unless I see the books myself, I don't believe the hype. Whoever is buying that crap should be shamed.

    So the Shawn Carter Foundation will be getting well over one million $$$$$$$
    from Barneys
    The Foundation provides scholarships to needy BLACK students
    Well what about WHITE students
    This whole thing reeks of racism

    100% of the profits of 1 million $ sales is not 1 million, but more something like 300.000 $. Still, nice pocket to pocket action, with tons of publicity and no tax to be paid on it.
