Miami Strip Club Sorry About Putting MLK Jr. on Its Flyer
Paul, a flyer designer and owner of South Side Grafix and a DJ known as Big Boy, makes flyers for The Office, a strip club at 250 Northeast 183rd Street. He was trusted to put together a graphic promoting the club's party on Sunday night that was scheduled to end at 6 a.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This is what he came up with:
"I wasn't trying to disrespect anybody ... it wasn't on my mind that it would escalate to something like this," Paul told NBC Miami. "It was just supposed to be a promotional thing, it wasn't about disgracing Martin Luther King, it wasn't about that."
The club's owners say that they had not seen the flyer, but don't appear to have answers as to why they were holding an MLK party at a strip club in the first place.
At least someone is learning something out of the fiasco.
"I apologize about it, I'm taking full responsibility," Paul tells NBC Miami. "I wish it could have gone down a different way but I'm learning from it and trust me, I'm not going down that route again."
