Well, there is NOTHING Pink or Berrylicious about this!
The co-founder of Pinkberry, Young Lee, was found GUILTY of beating a homeless man!
What the what?!
A jury of six men and six women decided that Mr. Lee did indeed beat up a homeless man who was panhandling on the U.S. Highway 101 off ramp. Apparently, Lee thought that the man showed him a sexually graphic tattoo.
Lee parked near there, came back and beat the homeless man with a tire iron, breaking his left forearm.
The sentencing will be on January 14th, and Lee could get seven years in prison.
Another thing that isn’t looking good for Lee is that he has priorly been convicted in 2001 of having a controlled substance and having a loaded firearm.
If you’re worried about your moral ability to eat Pinkberry’s delicious yogurt after this, don’t! The company cut ties with Lee long before the incident happened in January 2012.
This is just so sad!
