Los Angeles, Nov 16: Music producer-singer Jay Z will launch his fashion line at Barneys despite complaints that the multi-designer store racially discriminates against its customers.
The 43-year-old, whose real name is Shawn Carter, has released a statement on his website announcing he will continue launching his line at the New York store, reports contactmusic.com.
"I am in a unique position to use my voice to affect change to this disturbing issue. The easy position would have been to walk away and leave policy making to others hoping that someone addresses the problem.
"I will not leave the outcome to others. I will. »
