Brewing Controversy

A Dallas beer company is receiving  much heated criticism over a slogan for the beer "Dallas Blonde" after images of the new promotion truck were circulated online. The beer displays a blonde doll and reads that it "goes down easy". While the company owner claimed that is is just a fun play on words, many are saying that it is yet another promotion of rape culture in the United States. Alcohol is often involved in many sexual assault cases and some feel that a slogan like this on a can of beer is both inappropriate and insulting.

The owner did apologize for the offense the slogan may have caused anyone and has decided to remove it from the Dallas Blonde promotion truck.
