Albinos file complaint over Albino Rhino beer3/29/2012
A beer called Albino Rhino is not going down well with a couple of British Columbia albinos who have filed a human rights complaint claiming the Earls Restaurants house brew is "demeaning and humiliating." The restaurant chain also offers albino chicken wings on its menus. Claimant Peter Ash told PostMedia News, "People aren't allowed to order Alzheimer's appetizers, multiple sclerosis martinis and cerebral palsy cocktails, so why should they be able to order albino chicken wings?" An Earls representative said the beer -- which has been sold for the past 25 years -- was named for the white rhinoceros, not people with albinism.
Do you think 'Albino Rhino' beer is offensive to albinos?
