Rumors Salon Rouge, which claims to be a black salon in the US, has a history of claiming to be the official black salon of the city of Atlanta.
But, as of now, the claims are a lie.
The website has been down since July 8th.
The owner of Rumors salon did not respond to Ars’ requests for comment.
Rumors Salon, which has claimed to be officially sanctioned by the City of Atlanta, was also used as a venue for a Black Lives Matter protest in Atlanta last month.
The event was organized by Atlanta Black Lives Matters activist Tommie Harris.
Rumor Salon also claims to have been used to host the “Black History Month” conference in Atlanta, hosted by the Black Nationalist Coalition.
However, the conference was canceled shortly after the event.
Rumours Salon is currently offering a $500 “gift certificate” to people who visit the salon.
