A lot of fans also decided to troll Ja Rule for endorsing the small business.
According to Page Six, the ad was filmed as part of the new TBS reality TV show, “Celebrity Show-Off,” where stars compete with each other to get the most YouTube views.
In a clip of the upcoming episode, Ja explains that he made the ad to help one of his favorite eateries during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We all know we’re going through a tough time right now, especially mom and pop shops. My heart goes out to all of these businesses,” he said. “So today, I’m helping out Papa Cristo’s. This spot’s been around for 70 years. It is a staple in the community in Los Angeles, but like most mom and pop shops this year, he’s had a tough year. So I’m going to use my notoriety, my fame, to help him out and to show that I created called Pitch Perfect.”
