Joe Gammanotta, father of U.S. singer Lady Gaga , says crowdfunding that a restaurant run in New York, U.S.A., was unable to pay the salaries of employees due to a suspension order due to the new coronavirus. It has created controversy by launching a campaign to raise dollars.
She complained that she had to fire 30 employees of her Italian restaurant, Joanne, before she could reopen her business. A dollar can cover an employee's salary for two weeks, and all of the proceeds go to the employee's food, child care and medical expenses. "
However, Gaga's father was soliciting donations, and his daughter, who is said to have $ 39.5 million in total assets, was warned that support should be given. Crowdfunding's site is now closed, responding to the criticism that Gaga could donate millions of dollars and is a family of management. In New York, all restaurants, cafes and bars have been closed since the 16th to prevent infection. [Los Angeles = Kanako Chitose]
