Jay Z 'Squandering' Opportunity Against Racial Profiling With Barneys Partnership, Petitioner Says

"Our partnership with JAY Z was born out of a mutual interest in advancing the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides educational opportunities to young people facing socioeconomic hardship, and we remain fully committed to supporting this worthy cause," the company said in a statement on Friday.

"Barneys New York has zero tolerance for any form of discrimination," the company said on Friday. "While all of our investigations have been consistent in finding that no Barneys New York employee was involved in either of the deplorable situations concerning Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips, an issue exists in our industry, and we intend to be part of the solution. As we have stated all along, if we learn any procedures or practices are not consistent with our zero-tolerance policy, we will immediately take corrective action including terminating those employees responsible."
