Friday afternoon, an image of a bar in St. Charles, Mo., (approximately 15 miles from Ferguson) appearing to advertise a “Mike Brown Special” started to go viral on Facebook and Twitter.
Donahue said that message was written sometime after he opened the bar Thursday night, while he was at the gym. “It was up for 40 minutes.”
“When I parked my car and went into the bar, I saw the sign and immediately took it down,” Donahue said. “I confronted the customer who did it and asked him to leave the bar and never come back — he’s banned for life.”
He emphasized that the sign doesn’t reflect his establishment or his personal views. “I would be the last person to ever put that message outside my restaurant.”
