(AllHipHop News) Jay Z has been catching a heavy dose of heat from those that feel he needs to kill a highly publicized business deal with Barney’s, the high end retail store accused of racial profiling.
However, the rapper mogul received support from Rev. Al Sharpton, who said that Jay’s critics are looking at the wrong target.
“Some people want to make this about Jay-Z,” Sharpton said. “No, this is about Barneys first.”

Sharpton made the comments at the National Action Network offices, according to a report from the New York Post.

The civil rights leader also said that Barney’s better come up with a plan for the alleged racist actions of the New York store. The store profiled and questioned pricey purchases of a pair of African American patrons. A boycott may result if a meeting between NAN and Barney’s doesn’t yield a satisfactory plan.
