A pop-up restaurant in DC is getting the ultimate beatdown on Twitter for its new cocktail called the "Pill Cosby." Yes, it's real. And also, it's worse than you think. The tequila drink is garnished with empty pill capsules.
The cocktail was conceived by Diet Starts Monday, a retail/restaurant brand based in DC.
You can already guess from the name that the drink is a play on comedian Bill Cosby and his dozens of drug-facilitated sexual assault allegations. The restaurant owners are longtime friends David Gentry and John Geiger and creators of the Diet Starts Monday brand.
In an interview with the Washingtonian, Gentry said that the cocktail is meant to raise awareness of date rape. “It lets people be a little more aware,” he said.
Oh, SURE it is... in a little world called This Is What Happens When Two People Get Together and Want to Make a Joke About Rape and Never Consult A Victim.
Just a heads up guys, the consensus about how the joke did is out on Twitter and it looks like it's a flop. REALLY surprised on that one.
