B.C. woman wants 'Albino Rhino' off menu

1 post in this topic

A Metro Vancouver woman with albinism has launched a human rights complaint against a popular chain restaurant, saying the restaurant's 'albino' branding of menu items is going too far.

Ikponwosa (I.K.) Ero filed a complaint with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal against Earls Restaurants over it's "Albino Rhino" line of beer and the "Albino Wings Wednesdays" that the restaurant advertises.

The complaint alleges that the marketing of the "Albino" line is demeaning to Ero and all people with the genetic condition known as albinism, and is being done deliberately to evoke a sense of oddness about being albino.

REALLY!? As the rep from Earls says:

Mark Barry, vice-president of human resources with Earls Restaurants, issued a statement to media that said Earls created and named its house beer "Albino Rhino" 25 years ago, and in no way meant to discriminate or offend
.We are getting a little bit too sensitive as a society.:blink:
