"It would be like saying, let's put in some Alzheimer appetizers, Down syndrome daiquiris or cerebral palsy cocktails," he said. "That would offend anyone's sensibilities."

Uh...yeah. Where can I get those?

Don't albino rhinos really exist? So, this isn't a reference to a person at all. I r confused.

Rhinos have human rights?

Not the same Mr. PC Guy, if it was Albino Person Beer, I'm right there with ya...  or even Albino Beer.  But Albino Rhino has exactly nothing to do with this lady unless she is also HUGE and has a HORN STICKING OUT OF HER F'ING FOREHEAD...

They should have been collecting a portion of the price for the preservation of the White Rhinoceros and replied with "you should feel bad about yourself."

Charlie Baileygates: So, Whitey, what happened to your family?Whitey: I killed them. I hacked them up with a hammer while they were asleep. Ma, Pa, Bro, Sis. She was awake, my sis. I was just released from prison on my 21st birthday. I wasn't ready to leave but they said I had to. farked up law, huh?

They're new house beer?  Bunny-eyed Brew.  I'm gonna fly in on the red-eye and try some.

Vancouver, eh? So it's like a root beer or something?

Now, Bud Lite Platinum, there's a human rights violation.
 
2013-02-17 09:51:09 PM  
There's something about Down syndrome daiquiris or cerebral palsy cocktails that makes you think consuming these beverages might really mess you up, whereas Albino Rhino brand beer doesn't imply you're going to get paler and grow a horn.
 
2013-02-17 09:53:04 PM  

Polyhazard: Now, Bud Lite Platinum ANYTHING, there's a human rights violation.


You ALMOST had it.
 
2013-02-17 09:53:31 PM  
The complaint sparked online debate about political correctness gone amok, but "the only people who say that are people who don't have albinism or a friend or a spouse or a child with albinism",aren't petulant, overly sensitive snowflakes with a persecution complex or professional axe-grinders like  said Peter Ash, CEO of an advocacy group for those with the disability.

Fixed.

Gawdammitsomuch.

The Albino Rhino dark is one of my favourite beers. Very good stuff.

This is stupid. I'm going to sue the White Spot restaurant chain. Because I'm white.
 
2013-02-17 09:54:37 PM  
Couldn't they just rename it White Boy Brew or something instead of discontinuing it?

Actually I don't think they do. There are white rhinos and black rhinos (which are quite rare), but those are just names and they're pretty hard to tell apart.

That being said this is one of the stupidest farking things I've ever heard of. I knew albinos had pale skin, I just didn't know it was so thin.
 
2013-02-17 09:56:13 PM  
...and just how many rhinos were offended by this blatant discrimination

As a bald person I find the term bald eagle offensive and want it stricken from the record.

There is always someone that will get offended by anything.  Because "not being offended" is apparently a human right, now.

Hey man... some of that beer makes me belch for hours AND can give me heart burn for days.
That's right... hard core.

WTF. Many species exhibit albinism. It's not unique to humans.

Go have another Coors Light.

Earls Restaurants will take beer or chicken wings sold under the 25-year-old brand off the menu after a Vancouver woman with albinism filed a BC Human Rights Tribunal complaint against the chain in 2012.

Is the BC Human Rights Tribunal an actual thing that can get people into trouble? We're pretty PC in the US, too, but are there legal consequences in Canada for offending people?

"It would be like saying, let's put in some Alzheimer appetizers, Down syndrome daiquiris or cerebral palsy cocktails," he said. "That would offend anyone's sensibilities."

You know what offends me? Attention whores.

Oh, for farks sake.... People need to learn to just shut the fark up for once.

You're offended?  Tough shiat.  Go home and squirt me some tears, biatch.

They do, and the complaintant should be cockpunched or clitkicked depending on their gender; their real gender, too. Not what they self identify as, but based on what groinular attack would objectively cause them the most physical pain without long term damage in retribution for their horrible ignorance and self-centered belly aching.
