Sign about beer, domestic violence raises ire of some

| May 28, 2014

We know that some folks have a problem with they call overboard trends toward “political correctness,” but some things just aren’t funny—especially if you’ve lost a child, sister, brother, or dear friend to domestic violence.

And, to men who think such things are funny, tell us, how would you respond if someone put their hands on your daughter—or your mother? Think!

On another note, we don’t believe this is the first “interesting” story we’ve heard from Plano, Texas.

Outrage brews over bar sign about beer and domestic violence

by Jessica Durando, USA TODAY Network

A bar in Plano, Texas, is receiving criticism over a sign that read: “I like my beer like I like my violence. Domestic.”

Courtney Williams, 24, posted a photo of it after frequenting Scruffy Duffied on the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Facebook page, WFAA-TV reports. The post has since gone viral.

“I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, do you see this?'” Williams told WFAA.”How does someone think it’s OK to put something like that up there?”

Williams told WFAA that she asked the female bartender who had written the sign to erase it Saturday. She also asked two managers but they did not take it down.

Scruffy Duffies wrote on its Facebook page on May 26 that it was investigating the situation. A regional manager told News 8 on May 27 that the manager who was on duty was indefinitely suspended without pay, but an owner suggested that manager could lose his job.
