A Bromley boozer has been condemned for posting an offensive Facebook post that declared ‘no Germans allowed’.
Greater Than Gatsby on Bromley High Street, posted a picture captioned ‘D-Day! Come support our boys! England vs Holland’ on its page, advertising the football game that took place on the same day as the 6 June D-Day landings.
The bar’s Facebook account went on to add a comment that read: ‘Sorry snowflakes. Come on Egland (sic). No Germans allowed.’
Jim Ryan, an England fan from Bromley, told News Shopper the comments were ‘a poor show.’
He said: ‘You could say it’s light-hearted, but the whole 48 hours has been about commemorating the day in an appropriate way.
‘A bar like that should be more responsible on a day like today.’
He went on to say that he would not be watching the match in the bar after seeing the Facebook post.
A number of Facebook users left comments on the post itself, criticising Greater Than Gatsby’s post.
One user wrote: ‘D-Day has and never will have anything to do with football.
‘The association is offensive.’
Another said: ‘Poor judgment. Poor taste.’
It is not the first time the bar has found itself to be at the centre of controversy.
Last year it posted a sign in its window that banned punters from wearing hoodies.
