Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A downtown Marquette nightspot has issued a formal apology for a weekend drink special referring to the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal.
The Wild Rover on Washington Street came under fire this week on social media in the community for presenting a drink special called the “Ray Rice Punch”.
Lorne Washburn, General Manager of the restaurant and nightclub, issued the apology yesterday.
According to the statement, “The Wild Rover would like to publicly apologize for the name of a drink special that was ran on Saturday night.
The decision of the employee to run that drink special was made in poor taste. The gravity of the situation is being taken very seriously, and the matter is being handled internally with appropriate measures and course of action.”
The statement added that management was working to rectify the matter as soon as possible.
