Local bar posts sign: 'No means yes, yes means a***'
Employees will make mistakes – it's an unspoken assumption that comes with running any sort of business.
Sometimes mistakes fall on behalf of poor management, whether that's due to poor explanation of policy, lack of supervision or inconsistent practices.
And when a business repeatedly makes the same mistake time and time again, it's hard to believe that employees are to blame due to simply being 'unsupervised.'
Enter Locals Only, a bar in Toronto, Canada that's gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
The bar posted a neon sign outside its doors on February 11 that read "No means yes & yes means a***."
A photo was posted to Facebook by Katii Capern, who screenshotted the photo from an Instagram account that has since been deleted:

CBC News Toronto reports that when Capern asked a staff member what the last word in the sign meant, only to unpleasantly receive the response of "anal."
Management at Locals Only released a statement, which seemed more like a backhanded apology, to their Facebook page regarding the incident:
Though management claimed "responsibility for this incident", calling the situation "unfathomable and completely disheartening", it was on line in particular that riled up the masses on their Facebook page:
"Most importantly, we extend our deepest apology to anyone who may have been affected or offended by this."
Safe to say that sympathy was not found for the staff who quite literally penned a sentence that's the equivalent of saying "Sorry for demoralizing all victims (and loved ones of victims) of sexual-assault but we didn't mean to so you really shouldn't be offended."
People went off on the comment section of the "apology" on the Locals Only Facebook page:
And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it does, because of course.
Turns out that this isn't the first time Locals Only Toronto has posted a sign promoting rape culture.
Photos began resurfacing of signs that were previously put up at the bar that read "Dry slump? Do the Trump" and "Too naughty to say no":

The Sexual Assault Action Coalition released a statement regarding the incident, noting that Locals Only has signed off on the organization's five recommendations to attempt to amend the irreparable:
For most, it's too little to late.
And if that offends management at Locals Only, you can guarantee that it was absolutely intended.
