He was all set to kick off his A New York Holiday collaboration with Barneys, but now Jay Z has been forced to back out of the gig.
Originally scheduled for this Wednesday (November 20), the shindig will not go on due to unforeseen circumstances.
A spokesperson for the Shawn Carter Foundation declined to give any specifics surrounding the cancellation, but did note that the partnership is still intact.
Barneys was accused of racial profiling when two different shoppers claimed the staff treated them poorly because they are African-American.
However, Jay Z decided to go ahead with his BNY SCC Gallery Collection arrangement, noting that the Sean Carter Foundation would now receive 100% of the proceeds rather than the original 25%.
