Former Detroit Popcorn owner under fire for allegedly making racist comments; previous owner buys back company
DETROIT Former owner David Farber came out of retirement, repurchasing Detroit Popcorn following the statements made by his successor via social media. This morning we were made aware of the statements made by Evan Singer, owner of Detroit Popcorn, on social media. The Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) would like to thank everyone who alerted us to the racist comments made by the owner of Detroit Popcorn. You will no longer see Detroit Popcorn product at the Detroit Zoo.I think that's good, I think. Detroit Popcorn Company is closed in the short term until we can assess the best way to move forward and also facilitate a sale.
