Missouri Bar Slammed For Offering ‘Michael Brown Special-Six Shots’
Sensitivity is not the word for whoever decided it would be a good idea to offer 6 shots for $12 and call it a “Michael Brown special.”
Mug Shots, which is located in St. Joseph, sparked outrage when it started offering the shot special, reports Fox 4 News. A photograph of the sign that advertised the deal went viral and got people talking — and angry — after it appeared on the bar’s Facebook page.
A handful of protesters reportedly showed up outside of Mug Shots – which goes by the slogan “where sarcasm is always free” – on Saturday night, holding up signs and chanting.
The bar’s co-owner, who did not wish to have his name revealed but has since been identified as Rodney Stapleton by KNPN, apologized for the mistake and said it was just a reckless call on his part.
“It’s not meant to cause any harm,” the man told Fox 4. “I should have thought a little bit more about it before I made it a shot special.”[su_csky_ad]
