ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (FOX NEWS/AP) - An Italian restaurant is under fire after making merchandise with a slogan that mimics the Black Lives Matters Movement.
KOAT-TV reported that Paisano’s in Albuquerque is selling “black olives matter” shirts and hats after making national headlines for putting the phrase on a sign outside the restaurant.
Paisano’s owner Rick Camuglia said he emblazoned the phrase on the restaurant's main sign to sell a new recipe: a tuna dish with black olive tapenade.
Camuglia posted pictures of the dish and the sign on Facebook, drawing complaints he was being insensitive and trivializing a movement aimed at trying to stop police shootings of black residents.
