“Beer should be like violence: domestic”

Roots Bistro sign: "Beer should be like violence: domestic"

The bad news: Apparently, nobody at the Roots Bistro in Houston, Texas thought there was anything wrong with posting this sign over the weekend.

The good news: The internet instantly taught them otherwise and the sign was taken down within 10 minutes.

Even more good news: The restaurant’s manager seemed sincerely apologetic: “Everyone makes mistakes. We completely deserved the backlash, and I can’t be mad at anyone but myself.”

And some more bad news: But then they put up a weirdly defensive sign saying, “Seriously, focus your energy on equal rights.”
