13306: Globalhue Black & Blue.

AgencySpy posted on the latest financial woes of Globalhue, revealing that ten employees filed a class-action lawsuit for wages owed by the dying agency. The shop has reportedly failed to pay its workers for many months. Not even a few crumbs. The real estate company that owns the agency’s New York headquarters is also pursuing legal action, along with a personal driver who chauffeured CEO Don Coleman and his daughter, Kelli Coleman. Guess the Colemans will have to catch a cab to the courthouse.

But the most outrageous part of the exposé—besides the fact that only a lame blog like AgencySpy is bothering to cover the news—is the following excerpt:

In addition to the suit, we also hear that GlobalHue will soon close its New York office after losing its last client, Walmart. That company recently consolidated its accounts with Publicis, and multiple sources have told us that the multicultural portion of the business was part of that move.

Great. The client that once boasted boosting its budget for multicultural marketing is apparently consolidating with White advertising agencies in a White holding company. Hell, the minority business will probably be awarded to a shop run by White women.

if you visit young Ms. Coleman's Instagram feed you'll be regaled with images of glam photoshoots and a row of Mercedes G-Class vehicles as she pimps her new venture, a "modern nail bar." Wonder whose efforts underwrote that? Well, not really.

Whose efforts? My efforts and with my money. The money that I've earned from the time I was 10 years old until this very moment. While I can't control all decisions that were made at GlobalHue, nor do I agree with all of them, I will not let you or this site misrepresent my family and me. If you work hard enough and you're blessed enough to soar to heights unimagainable via a business that you started from nothing, there will be challenges, barriers, naysayers and judgmental people that will be hell bent on deterring you. There will be gross misrepresentations, people that prove themselves to be disloyal, and those that are relentless in their pursuit of your downfall. You will stumble, potentially have regrets and down times. However it will be how you pick yourself up that will measure your ability to rise nonetheless. Judging and shaming is easy. Do the work, worry about you and don't worry about my latest venture, my vehicle of choice or my family. Best of luck. -Kelli Coleman Mother, Entrepreneur, Leader, Hard Worker, and Survivor
PS to this site... I've never been too good for Uber. It's genius, convenient and economical. If you're so about multicultural, stop attacking and ask questions directly for real answers.
