Strip club apologizes for using Martin Luther King Jr.'s image in flier


MIAMI -- When Martin Luther King Jr. said he had a dream, this likely wasn't what he meant.

A flier promoting a Miami strip club's "I Have a Dream Bash" featuring MLK holding wads of cash next to scantily clad women has its creator taking plenty of flak.

Miami Beach graphic designer Jeffrey Darnell Paul says he didn't realize the flier, made for The Office strip club at 250 Northeast 183rd Street, would generate the controversy it has.

"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 Monday. "It was just supposed to be a promotional thing, it wasn't about disgracing Martin Luther King, it wasn't about that."

Paul, who owns and runs South Side Graphix, said he makes fliers for the club every Sunday and that he made the King flier about a week ago for the club's promoters.

"It was proposed to me like a birthday bash for Martin Luther King, I put a flier together without thinking about the effects it would have," said Paul, who is also known as DJ Big Boy. "It's something that I really didn't think about."

Paul said the bash, which was supposed to begin at 8 p.m. Sunday and end at 6 a.m. Monday on MLK Day, was canceled after he realized the flier was inappropriate. He said by then, the flier was making the rounds on the Internet and he was getting lots of negative feedback.

"I got plenty of phone calls, plenty of phone calls ... people calling from Chicago, Ohio, California," Paul said. "If I could've, I would have taken it back ahead of time."

"What was I thinking? Promotion," Paul told NBC Miami.

The strip club's management sought to distance themselves from the promotional effort on Monday, however.

“This is the first time seeing it. This is the owner's first time seeing it," The Office manager Jermaine Robinson said. "So we don’t condone this. This is Martin Luther King. We respect what he did. Today is the day for us to honor him.”

Robinson said the flier is "definitely disrespectful, to be honest with you."

Paul said there's no one to blame but himself.

"I apologize about it, I'm taking full responsibility," he said. "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."

What's wrong w/ this picture?

MLK (a known filanderer) didn't have to pay for it.

Unsure of what laws you're referring to.

Well, one thing that is wrong is that the $100 Bills in the picture were not in circulation in the 1960's.

Georgia, Texas and the Feds have laws prohibiting the use of a photo of a dead celebrity figure to promote something without consent.

RE: What's wrong with this picture?
Whats wrong is that it's "Racist" to point out this aspect of the popular African American culture is, in a large way, responsible for holding down Black youth.

The Image of MLK will get people pissed but that poster is almost as offensive without him.

Newt suggest that a job as a Janitor would help teach young kids a work ethic, something even his own Daughter had done, and Juan Williams tries to rake him over the coals for being "insensitive to minorities".

It's not that this sub culture exist. Every large culture has their sad, sorry, subcultures (Trailer Trash springer fans, ...). The real problem is that those in the AA community who do not subscribe to it, perhaps because they see it for the dead and that it is, are often pilloried for being "too white".

Tough to get consent from a dead person.

So for people that use Washington, Lincoln, FDR et. al in publications do they have to get consent for them?

I would have thought if you have a national monument to you in D.C. your image would be public domain.

National Monument? MLK has his own federal holiday, something no cracker has. (Jesus had one but they took that away as not to offend people. And even though there are more Christians than blacks in this country it was PC to give a brutha a day)

But I'll bet obama gets his.

Juan Williams raked Newt over the coals because he said black people should be happy with paychecks not food stamps.... even though most food stamp recipients are white. Of course the South Carolina audience ate it up. (Newt's defense of his statement that is).

Ummm Newt never said "black people should be happy with paychecks not food stamps"

Quote:“More people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history,” Gingrich says in the video, set to soaring music. “I’m going to continue to find ways to help poor people learn how to get a job, learn how to get a better job and learn someday to own the job.”

Quote:“Most of these schools ought to get rid of the unionized janitors, have one master janitor and pay local students to take care of the school,” Gingrich said according to a CNN video. “The kids would actually do work, they would have cash, they’d have pride in the schools, they’d begin the process of rising. Get any job that teaches you to show up on Monday. Get any job that teaches you to stay all day, even if you’re having a fight with your girlfriend.”

Is the work 'black' in there anywhere... Newt made Williams, who I generally like, look like a fool. Newts daughter did work as a Janitor... That was the best part of the whole thing..

I see nothing wrong with the flyer. it was produced by a local strip club, not an advertising agency. They could have put Robert E Lee in it and I would not have been offended.
