Michael Brown Missouri Bar Drink Special Sparks Protests

By    |   Wednesday, 10 Dec 2014 06:02 AM

A Missouri bar's weekend drink special named after Michael Brown, the black teen who was shot to death in Ferguson by a white police officer, has sparked protests.

Mugshots, a bar in St. Joseph, promoted on its Facebook page a "Michael Brown Special" consisting of six shots of tequila for $10, according to Reuters.

Brown, 18, was struck by at least six bullets in the shooting by the policeman, according to three separate autopsies performed in the investigation. A grand jury declined to indict the officer last month, sparking protests nationwide.

A co-owner of the bar, who asked not to be named, has since apologized. "It's not meant to cause any harm. I should have thought a little bit more about it," WDAF-TV in Kansas City quoted him as saying.

The Mugshots drink special drew protests online and protesters picketed on Saturday outside the bar.

The bar's Facebook page has been disabled and a phone call to the bar Tuesday went unanswered.
