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!

Wife of the year!

Beyoncé is helping her hubby Jay Z promote his new holiday collaboration with Barneys by posing in some of the covetable pieces. If anyone can make people wanna buy this stuff, it's Queen Bey!

The singer wears a black and white Moncler leather sleeve varsity jacket with leggings and a Just Don leather Brooklyn cap that covers up her new platinum hair color, looking pensive against a white background.

In case you're wondering, that jacket will set you back about $2,295 while the cap retails for $875. But can you really put a price on something endorsed by Hov and a bright blonde Bey???

Plus, 100% of the proceeds from the sales will go to benefit the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides scholarships for disadvantaged youths. Spending money for a good cause is the BEST!

Barneys released the following statement regarding the collection:

Jay Z releases another statement about the racial profiling at Barneys, and major retailers have agreed to meet about the situation!

When Jay Z’s fans created a petition to end his relationship with Barneys after multiple accounts of the store’s racism, we bet they never expected him to get THIS involved!

Major props to HOVA for sticking up for his followers!

After his initial response to complaints and lawsuits directed toward Barneys and the NYPD when they tried to arrest black customers leaving a store with their purchases, the rapper posted an update on the situation to Life + Times last week.

He eloquently wrote:
