Frank Ocean has a message to executives at Chipotle: “f*ck off.” A lawsuit was filed by the fast food chain against the R&B singer last week after Ocean backed out of a deal to a record a song for the company.
Ocean was paid $212,500 back in July 2013 to sing a cover of a track titled, “Pure Imagination.” Unfortunately, Ocean never delivered the track, forcing Chipotle to hire Fiona Apple to perform the cover.
Last week, Ocean’s legal team sent Chipotle a letter explaining the singer’s decision to dropout of the project:
“When Frank was asked to participate in this project, Chipotle’s representatives told him that the thrust of the campaign was to promote responsible farming. There was no Chipotle reference or logo in the initial presentation, and Chipotle told Frank that was an intentional element of the campaign … Frank was also promised that he’d have the right to approve the master and all advertising.”
Ocean’s direct response to the drama was a little less tactful as he posted an image of a cashier’s check to his Tumblr in the amount of $212,500 to a redacted company with “Fuck off” written in the Memo section in all caps.
