“Time to work on my legacy,” the original caption said. “For a kid from Brownsville, Brooklyn this is a dream come true. To be part of an amazing team to create something so extraordinary.”
Adding, “I look forward to nothing but success. Continue to thank God for the blessings.”
Kevin Hunter edited the photo’s caption to “can’t wait to see you there” after being slammed for “building his legacy” with Wendy Williams’ money.
“Working on your legacy with Wendy’s money. Boy bye,” one person wrote in the comments.
Another said, “opening a restaurant on @wendyshow dime. Fucking loser. You’re legacy is a joke.”
“Baby this shit is gonna fail and we’re gonna make sure of that,” a woman wrote.
The Brooklyn restaurant is set to have a soft opening on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
