Miami Police Department Responds To Controversial Jay-Z Ad

(AllHipHop News) The Miami Police Department has issued a statement regarding an offensive anti-gang PSA banner advertisement that was posted on the department’s official website yesterday (October 7th). Jay-Z, who along with his wife Beyonce Knowles, are two of the most recognizable stars on the planet. The Miami Police’s website still featured Jay-Z in an advertisement with two sketches taken from past publicity shots, with the caption: “REPORT GANG ACTIVITY.” “It was something that was inadvertently done,” Miami Police Department’s Officer Kenia Reyes told EW. ”It was a mistake.” Reyes blamed the ad on a mistake attributed to the Miami Police Department’s computer department. Jay-Z, who was recently profiled in Forbes with billionaire investor Warren Buffett, declined to comment.
