YIKES: Local Icon Protested After 'Blackface' Costume by Employee - 'She Has Biracial Gr

Pamela Cross, who owns The Bunnery with her husband, said Tuesday afternoon that she wasn’t there for the initial interaction when her husband called the police.

Of course, CBS News jumped on the story, which was covered by Brittany Donovan of the Jacksonville affiliate station.
