The AP reports that Jay-Z is boycotting Cristal... Which, of course, means The Realests are now boycotting Cristal.

This is how the man in charge of Cristal - Frederic Rouzaud - pissed Jigga off:

In The Economist magazine, Rouzaud said the company viewed the affection for his company’s champagne from rappers and their fans with “curiosity and serenity.”

Asked by the magazine if the association between Cristal and the “bling lifestyle” could be detrimental, Rouzaud replied:

“That’s a good question, but what can we do? We can’t forbid people from buying it. I’m sure Dom Perignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business.”

Now, this isn't exactly a surprise coming from an extremely wealthy French guy. And it's up for debate whether the comment was actually racist.

Either way, we are getting bottle service tomorrow night at the 40/40 Club and will take turns pissing in leftover Cristal bottles. Pictures to come...

That is so not a racist comment.
The only reason why Jay-Z boycotted it is because he was just about to launch his own champagne!
