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:
"A staff member at Durty Nellie's created what was meant to be a light-hearted name for a weekend special, that in hindsight, was offensive and uncalled for. The owners of Durty Nellie's extend a sincere apology to anyone who was offended.”
