FJ Holdings & Khuri Enterprises – Vehicular Manslaughter & Burying The Truth
Last year, a teenage driver ran over a young woman named Monique Munoz. The driver was Brendan Khuri, the son of James Khuri. It was an unfortunate incident but the way James handled everything made the situation even worse. For those unaware, James is the owner of Khuri Enterprises.
James Khuri is an online business guru and didn’t want any negative press to stay attached to his name. So, the Khuri Enterprises owner started spending heavily on positive PR to make sure his reputation stayed intact.
Not only is this insensitive but also extremely selfish. It goes to show how James Khuri actually thinks.
More Details about the Car Crash
Brendan Khuri, 17 year old at the time of the car crash, was driving a $200,000 Lamborghini at 100+ MPH and ran over Monique Munoz in the evening.
The incident happened in the 10700 block of West Olympic Boulevard, east of Overland Avenue. Initially, it was unclear what led up to the crash.
Isaac Cardona, the stepfather of Munoz said that a kid was racing down the street in a Lamborghini, doing 120 miles per hour. He hit her and killed her. Isaac called the behavior senseless.
Munoz was pronounced dead on the scene while others took Brendan to the hospital.
INitially, the authorities didn’t reveal the reckless driver’s name because he was a minor. However, people soon linked his identity to the Khuri Enterprises owner, James Khuri.
Shady Behavior of the Khuri Enterprises CEO
The accident was horrible but the way the district attorney responded to everything was worse. The DA overseeing the investigation didn’t press charges immediately. This enraged a large community of people formed around the loss of loved ones due to reckless driving.
People created a #justiceformonique hashtag to highlight this issue. Also, they demanded the teen driver and possibly the parents to be held accountable.
Legal experts said that the DA was endangering the lives of the local residents by taking a misguided soft approach to the crime rather than acting like a DA. By doing so, he was re-victimizing the families of victims.
Surely, the DA’s leniency towards the Khuri Enterprises’ CEO and his son was unreasonable.
Although the DA had booked James’ son for the crime, he didn’t press any charges. He kept it under review.
James Khuri’s Utter Disregard of the Victims
Munoz’s death and the Khuri Enterprises owner’s behavior were sparking a lot of discussions about reckless driving. However, things came to a head when the family of the victim held a Cruise Night Protest.
They held the protest to plead for justice.
However, it had no effect on James Khuri. Instead of reaching out to the victim’s family or even laying low, he attended a party for his photographer and posted about it online.
The caption of his post said, “I hope you enjoyed your birthday last night!!! I did”. Certainly, James didn’t care about the victim of his son’s reckless driving even one bit.
Afterwards, Munoz’s family started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds. They wanted justice as the DA wasn’t doing anything. He wasn’t pressing charges and it seemed like he wouldn’t do anything in the future as well.
Sadly, that’s not all. The Khuri Enterprises CEO utilized several unethical business tactics to clear his name:
Using Khuri Enterprises and Its PR to Bury the News
James Khuri didn’t want people to remember this incident. Maybe he feared that it would harm his business interests or harm ‘his reputation’. So, he started spending heavily on internet marketing and paid PR to create positive searches around his name.
All of a sudden, numerous positive articles popped up on the internet praising him and his company, Khuri Enterprises.
One of the PR articles was about James’ lavish lifestyle and his fast cars:
Here’s a snippet of another paid PR article he posted online:
One article said that his almost one million followers enjoy seeing a “passionate Lamborghini owner”. How ironic.
His Lamborghini caused the death of an innocent young woman and he was bragging about it in his PR articles.
He also posted some articles under the name of his company, Khuri Enterprises, to bury the news further.
Apart from posting positive PR articles, the Khuri Enterprises CEO started posting a lot on Instagram. If someone brought up Munoz or the incident in the comments, they were immediately blocked.
People suspected that James had hired a marketing team to monitor his Instagram page to make sure there was nothing negative on it.
Keep in mind that his primary goal with such posts was to make people forget about the terrible car crash.
Also, James has a record. In 2019, he was booked for domestic violence.
The Truth About James Khuri, Jane Khuri & Brendan Khuri
It will be an understatement to call the Khuri family criminals. They not only took a young life but also abused their wealth & power. I ask every one of you to think about this deeply. If the tables were turned and a POC was to do something similar, they will be thrown into prison for 10 years. But because of their family ties, Brendan faced zero consequences for his actions.
If they go unpunished, it will be a statement about the state of our country and how racism & abuse of power is still rampant in the greatest country in the world.
Avoid Khuri Enterprises and James Khuri
Reckless driving is a big problem but the double standard of how the law applies to the rich is worse. The Khuri Enterprises owner used his wealth and affluence to save his son from the consequences of his own actions.
Moreover, he tried his best to ensure people forgot all about Munoz’s death. He didn’t want a single blemish on his “online business guru” image.
This is proof that he is extremely selfish and greedy. Keep these points in mind when dealing with Khuri Enterprises. In fact, it would be best if you avoided doing business with Khuri Enterprises.
The Khuri Enterprises CEO, James Khuri, has spent a lot of money on covering up the crime of his son. It would be best if you we could all raise our voices against this selfish abuse of our legal system.
- Fake PR
- Covering up his son’s crime
- No regard for the victim’s family
