SMH: Graphic Designer Sorry for MLK Stripper Party Promo

January 19, 2012  |  

Martin Luther King Jr. died for a lot, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t for the right to drink Ciroc and throw dollar bills at strippers. That’s the image a Miami graphic designer portrayed on a flyer advertising an “I Have a Dream” birthday bash this past Sunday.

Jeffrey Darnell Paul/ DJ Big Boy just barely uttered the words “I apologize” when an NBC newscaster asked what he was thinking when he made a flyer like that.

“What was I thinking?,” he responded. “Promotion, my business.”

The promotion didn’t work so well though. The gentleman’s club, which did not approve the flyers and claims Jeffrey acted on his own, called the entire celebration off and there was no party when the club opened its doors on MLK’s bday. Appearing halfway apologetic, although able to easily make this mistake again, Jeffrey said he wishes he would’ve taken the time to think about what he was putting on the flyer, which he says he spent no more than five minutes creating.

“If I could turn back the hands of time, it wouldn’t have happened…that’s something you don’t play with as I’ve learned.”

I still have a feeling he’ll find someway to disgrace the nation’s founders for President’s Day next month. I pretty much hate all of the flyers promoters come up with for night clubs anyway but this one by DJ Big Boy definitely takes the cake.

Do you think the DJ even realizes what was wrong with what he did? Did you come across any crazy MLK party promotions this past weekend?
