Racist to mention suicide bombers

"A Swansea bar serving a cocktail drink called a 'Suicide Bomber' has apologised after being accused of "insensitivity."

The advert in the window of The Lounge in Wind Street advertises the drink with a mock image of a person wearing an explosive-packed vest.

The director of the Swansea Bay Race Equality Council said it went beyond a poor joke and wants it taken down.

The bar said they did not mean to cause any offence or to upset anyone. The cocktail is part of a promotion for bomb-themed drinks, alongside 'Skittle Bomb', 'Cherry Bomb' and 'Melon Bomb'.

Taha Idris, director of Swansea Bay Race Equality Council, said: "I just can't believe that anyone could be so insensitive with all that is going on in the world.



  1. Why would someone by upset with a picture of a suicide vest? Could it be that one particular group is predominately associated with that type of behavior? And why would anyone want to protect that type of behavior? Shouldn't we be doing everything we can to stamp out the behavior including making fun of it?

    I'm sorry, suicide bombers should not be a protected class of persons. Doesn't the fact that they blow themselves in order to murder inocent people mean that they don't need or want protection?

    I'm surprised that the pub wasn't threatened with a suicide bomber attack in retaliation for this dastardly deed.

  2. How did the sensitive one come to be offended? Don't tell me a muslim walked in to a bar? That could be the start of a good joke...
