A restaurant in upstate New York has come under scrutiny for naming a sandwich after Robert Kraft, just days after the New England Patriots owner was arrested as part of a prostitution sting.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, a chain of restaurants based in Syracuse, named a pulled pork sandwich after Kraft and promoted it on its Twitter and Facebook page over the weekend.
“This week ONLY stop into the Syracuse Dinosaur to get a ‘Robert Kraft’ aka the Jerked and Pulled Chicken Sandwich,” the caption below a picture of the sandwich read.
The restaurant’s post quickly went viral but the establishment faced a backlash for seemingly making fun of Kraft’s alleged crimes.
Dinosaur Bar-B-Que has since deleted the post and offered donate a percentage of the proceeds from the sale to Syracuse-based McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center.
After deleting the post, the restaurant released an official apology.
“It was a joke that we didn’t completely think through. We apologize to anyone who was offended from the human trafficking aspect,” the statement read, according to The Post-Standard.
Not the kind of imagery you want while eating a sandwich.
