Nothing says brunch like bottomless fentanyl, errr uh. Well this is what Yuzu, a restaurant in Lakewood, OH, jokingly put on their Instagram story as the “new brunch special.” And outrage ensued once the wonderful world of social media got ahold of it. From you shouldn’t be making fun of the opioid crisis, to it’s in poor taste, to maybe your account was hacked. The owner didn’t respond to any of the backlash until a few days later and here’s a blurb of his response on Facebook:
Was the original post just in poor taste? Or is backlash like this to blame on an overly politically-correct culture we’re living in. Being a business owner is like walking on eggshells, be careful as to what you post on social media and stay away from controversial topics, because that can be like opening Pandora’s box.
