FUBU Founder Accused of Trying to Gouge Florida on Face Masks



FUBU founder and Shark Tank investor Daymond John accused of trying to sell face masks to the state of Florida at a huge mark-up...
 
From The Miami Herald
The price would have been one of the highest the state would agree to pay for the highly coveted N95 protective mask: $7 a piece for 1 million masks.
The source of the offer had cachet and seemed legit. He was Daymond John, CEO of the Shark Group and one of the stars of the popular TV show “Shark Tank.” He said he could get them for Florida but the cost would be more than three times the market price for the masks, which normally sell for under $2 each.
Deals had been falling through for weeks and Jared Moskowitz, director of the Florida Department of Emergency Management, decided the state would pay any price to get them into the hands of desperate healthcare workers in COVID-19 hot zones in Florida.
“This was not somebody off the street, this was Daymond John,’’ Moskowitz said. “He came to me and said, ‘I’ve been in the clothing business. I have connections with factories in China.’ ”

YT's do it and get a pass. He really should donate half them if good faith.

He's no good anyway. Last year, I signed up for one of his business webinars and it was foul. When I unsubscribed, he kept flooding my box with more BS. It took six months for him to stop.

I have no idea who he is. That seems to be about the markup the greys would charge and no one would bat an eye. Then again he could have just added an extra two dollar markup and still made a profit *shrugs*

Capitalism at its finest. I used to enjoy watching Shark Tank but quit taking them seriously when they gave these two White/Other boys a deal for their potato delivery service which essentially sends somebody a potato with a face or note on it for $15.

Greedy fat nigga. This pandemic makes me hate people more and more this week. Part of me just wants the world to end and take us all out of this misery called Earth. There is no Hell because we gave already been born in it and are living in it. Sorry for being negative but this whole week I've been feeling hopeless and nihilistic.

I hear you @ 4:14PM. This whole situation has brung out the evil in a lot of people and folks are showing their true colors but don't despair and don't give up hope. There's still some good people out there so focus on them instead and avoid negativity. That's a start. And I'm not being shady but staying away from these type of blogs or limiting them is a good start. And quit the news. That mess will have you thinking the whole world's about to end.
