The DOLWHD fined Ross and his family $114,427 “in back wages, liquidated damages and civil penalties.”
Ross responded to the allegations in a video on his Instagram Story.
Ross is wearing a Balmain knitted sweater while seated at a piano in his Fayetteville, Ga. mansion that was once owned by former boxer Evander Holyfield.
“When you’re running a business, there will be mistakes,” he says. “But as the biggest boss, you never make the same mistake twice. You see, accountability. Taking accountability is big when you the biggest. And remember this, most successful people don’t take stumbling as a set back, but actually a stepping stone to greater things you heard me? Let’s be great. A toast to the hustlers.”
The portly rapper owns over 2 dozen Wingstop locations around the U.S.
