Though I appreciate when there is a good pun or an excellent play on words, some are offensive. Some hurt.
Personally, I find this name offensive. Incredibly insensitive and offensive. Others do too as there have been recent protests outside this bar.
And the bar’s response? They stated they will not change the name. It isn’t a pun, just a name because the drink is grape-flavored.
The local media covered the small protest. Then the bar got a bit smart-mouthy on their Facebook page again asking where was the media when they sold 10 gallons of this date grape kool aid drink.
And the back and forth verbal pissing contest continues. Many comments are almost as insensitive as the drink name. I feel for rape victims who may relive their experience due to a drink name.
Many people (including the bar owners) don’t see the name as an offensive issue. What do you think? Is this a generational difference as to what is offensive?
