Mugg & Bean Takes Steps Against Franchise Owner For ‘Black Face Mishap’

The East London man allegedly posted a picture of his child on Instagram, with the face painted black and the caption: “Using my child to apply for business grants, hope we come right.”


The post led to outrage on Twitter.

Mugg & Bean has condemned the remarks, saying the post was in bad taste.

“We are shocked by the conduct of Mr Kruger and we do not condone his actions,” the group said in a statement on Friday. “Although Mr Kruger has explained his intentions have been misunderstood, we find it inexcusable that anyone can claim to be ignorant of the meaning of the image and its damaging effects.
