Wild Rover releases apology for “Ray Rice Punch”

MARQUETTE — The Wild Rover in Marquette released a statement regarding a drink special run Saturday night featuring a “Ray Rice Punch”.

“The Wild Rover would like to publicly apologize for the name of a drink special that was ran on Saturday night.  It was never intended to make light of domestic violence.  The decision of the employee to run that drink special was made in poor taste.  The gravity of the situation is being taken very seriously, and the matter is being handled internally with appropriate measures and course of action.”

“It is not the views or the opinions of the Wild Rover, its owners, or management team that domestic violence is acceptable.  We apologize to all offended for the lapse of judgement and are working to rectify this matter as soon as possible.”

–Lorne Washburn, General Manager
