It’s not uncommon for businesses to use social media to attract and engage with their customers, but several metro Detroit party stores were caught using it to mock its patrons.

Fox 2 News Detroit reports that cellphone photos of Black part store customers with racist comments underneath them began appearing on Instagram. The customers faces are clearly seen and none of them were aware that their photos had been taken. Some of the victims of the vicious online attacks are children, like in the photo above.

Below are a few more photos with the accompanying comments.


COMMENT: They probably stole those dogs.


COMMENT: David trying to bleach this burnt kahpa

Some people later found the photos and called Fox 2 to investigate who exactly took them.The images were tracked to Instagram user, bkoftheday, who is the son of a party store owner in Warren, Mich. When Fox 2 got a hold of the father, he seemed to be very upset over his son’s behavior.

“I apologize to the people,” he said. “I apologize to little kids, to grown men. I will apologize to everybody about my son.”

The man claims his son worked for him at the store but has fired him because of his actions. Check out the full news story below.

    If Black folk in that area refused to step foot in that store again, it would be forced to close and move to another area which is what needs to happen. It’s time to shop BLACK so DON’T GO BACK TO THAT STORE PERIOD.


  2. People like these store owners and there family members as well as the other bigots that you read about are generally people with self esteem issues, those that need to attack others to inflate themselves. However the real underlining issues is they envy those that they attack. They feel threaten by them and not in a physical way. Blacks have pretty much been the main targets and will continue to be because they are the strongest most resilent race on this earth. Nothing that has been done to them and continue to be done to them keeps them down and it’s intimidating to the other races. Stay strong black people and know your worth!

  4. There are a lot of us who go to the dollar stores, and I’m from detroit, and working people also go to the dollar stores, so why would they post something so Ignorant to make the city or the people look bad, All the elderly people go to the dollar store. Please are you kidding me. Why does economic and race have to always play apart in something, that has no bearing on where you shop, times are hard for everyone. My mom still shops at the dollar stores. and there is nothing wrong with it,,
    Our leaders of this so called America do not care about OUR economic situations. they don’t care who are living in tents and living in there cars. what does Race and Detroit CIty have to do with Social Media ARE YOU KIDDING ME… GOD Please hurry and Come back. To GOD BE THE GLORY and to whoever posted this,, that was wicked and low-down. BUT GOD/ Hears all and sees all.

  5. These scumbags have no shame, even to the point that they allow themselves to viciously attack children and feel no guilt for labeling and stigmatizing them at such a young age!
