Lady Gaga‘s dad Joe Germanotta is the owner of the New York City restaurant Joanne Trattoria and he reportedly asked the public to help support his staff amid the current health crisis.
A GoFundMe page was set up to raise $50,000 to support the staff of the restaurant. Newsweek reports that 30 employees from the restaurant were laid off until they are able to open again.
Joe reportedly tweeted the link to the page and said, “I’m doing the best I can but we had to close Joanne for the month. Our staff needs some help financial. Any help for our employees will be appreciated.”
Since then, the tweet has been deleted and the GoFundMe page has been deactivated.
Earlier this month, Joe said that he’s seen a 70% drop in business during the pandemic, but he plans on supporting the staff. He told Fox Business, “These kids have been with me for eight years … they’re kind of like my children at this point. I intend to keep them on some type of stipend to keep them going.”
