"Moving forward, Durty Nellie's will leave all attempts at humor to the professionals,” the restaurant’s statement read.

The restaurant world has seen no shortage of creative edible takedowns targeting President Trump, like a pizza made for “tiny fingers” and an “alternative facts zero-calorie meat lovers pizza.” The latest one came from Durty Nellie’s, a pub near Chicago that was forced to apologize for its “Build a Wall” Mexican burger special, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The $15 deal was advertised as, "Stack as many 4 oz. Angus patties as you want in between a brioche bun and top them all with some amazing Mexican ingredients!" The promotion showed Trump’s profile against a brick wall background. It was posted on Facebook and then taken down mere hours later.

The post received both praise and criticism; some reviewers called it “offensive” while others saw the snarky humor in the post. In a statement later released to the public, the pub apologized:
