D.C. Bar Removes ‘Pill Cosby’ Cocktails from Menu After Backlash

UPDATE: The bar is no longer serving the drink, due to immense backlash on social media and a barrage of bad reviews on Yelp, Eater DC reports. Gentry says, “We are sorry for any pain this has caused and we’re working to do better.”

A pop-up bar on 14th St is now serving “Pill Cosby” cocktails. The tequila-based drink comes complete with empty pill capsules on top.

According to Washingtonian, the Diet Starts Monday co-founder David Gentry said they are offering the drink in part to bring awareness of drugging in bars. “It lets people be a little more aware,” says Gentry.

I’m going to bet they decide not to sell it, the backlash on Twitter is brutal.
