Rick Ross is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The US rapper has reportedly been fined for multiple Wingstop restaurant violations.
The superstar owns nearly 30 Wingstop franchises across the US. The violations reportedly include forcing employees to illegally use their own money for safety training, uniforms, background checks and cash register shortages.
XXL reports that Rozay was fined by the US' Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (DOLWHD) for the violations. The publication further reports that in some instances, this caused some of the hip-hop artist's workers’ average hourly rates to fall below the $7.25 (R119.88) federal minimum wage.

Social media users took to Twitter and shared mixed reactions to the news about the violations.
"Prime example why you must be careful tryna hook up friends & family. We all know Ross don't run the day to day, yet it's his name in the headlines. Some unqualified sibling or uncle made these decisions."
"What? They didn't know this was against the law? But, I am going to give @RickRoss a break. Since it appears this only happened in MS, this was probably done by regional managers or a regional mgmt company. Ross and his fam are not running the day to day."
