Bistro Takes Down Bacon Sign After Muslim Woman Complains

For some reason, the vast majority of Americans can’t get enough of bacon. So Sneakers Bistro in Vermont put up a big sign proudly advertising bacon on it. There’s just one snag: a local Muslim resident wasn’t happy about it and got the bistro to take it down.

Here’s the sign in question:

One Muslim woman complained on a public forum that she took offense at the sign. The owners of the bistro ended up reaching out to her. They apologized and took the sign down, saying they didn’t mean to offend anyone with their bacon celebration.

The bistro tweeted out a link to an explanation on their Facebook page about the decision, but as of this posting their Facebook page is down.

They ended up getting quite a lot of negative reactions.
