Albino Rhino Beer
March 28, 2012 by staff
Albino Rhino Beer, References to albinos on restaurant menus are offensive and a violation of human rights. So say Peter Ash and Ikponwosa Ero, who both have albinism. They have filed a complaint with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal to be heard later this year.
The complaint seeks to have Earls Restaurants remove albino rhino beer and albino chicken wings from their menus and advertisements. “People aren’t allowed to order Alzheimer’s appetizers, multiple sclerosis martinis and cerebral palsy ccktails, so why should they be able to order albino chicken wings?” said Ash on Tuesday.
Earls vice-president Mark Barry said the complaint will be opposed because the restaurant doesn’t feel it is discriminating against anyone. He said in a statement that no offence was intended when albino rhino beer was introduced 25 years ago.
“We do not feel albino rhino as a beer brand reflects any intention to discriminate against persons with albinism,” he said.
