Flavor Flav's Employees Claim Paychecks Bounced

A number of people told WQAD in Clinton, IA they couldn't cash their checks, with one being for only $150. One employee claims she even went to the bank the check was issued from, but even they wouldn't cash it!

Co-owner Nick Cimino told the station thy had a "credit card glitch" at one point, but everything is fine now. He also chalked it up to disgruntled ex employees.

Flav himself said, "It's not true information, first of all. And second of all, maybe these are people that's just jealous of me being here and probably want to see me out. Yes, we do have money in our accounts."

...they are just disgruntled. Think so? Funny how when people aren't paid their attitudes can get a bit snippy.

Furthermore, what's this about a credit card and pay check... dare I say, "ghetto"

Disgruntled EX employees? The place has been open for only a few weeks and has not even had its "grand opening." I live in Clinton, IA and the place is a dump.

How does a credit card problem result in bouncing checks. Hmmmmmmmm, sounds kind of fishy to me and this is supposed to be a chicken story.

Why would people, who willingly work for you btw, be jealous just cause a paycheck doesn't cash? How can that be chalked up to "disgruntled employee" as well. I mean, that's why people work....to get a paycheck. Their checks bounced...that's not disgruntled (as is defined by normal businesses), that's being reasonably upset you didn't get paid for the time you worked. I can honestly believe anyone would be upset by that, including the said owner if he had a check bounced paid to him. 'Jealous" and "disgruntled" makes no sense at all, even in Flavor Flav's world of reasoning. That's just weird.

Maybe someone should pull a Donnald Trump and make Flav show Bank records to show he has money in his accounts.
