An Australian pub has deleted an image of Jesus and issued an apology after facing extreme backlash on social media.

Mary’s Newtown in New South Wales received a barrage of hateful and threatening comments slamming the eatery as “disgusting” and “disrespectful” for its controversial post, which featured Jesus holding a cigarette and a beer.


“Jesus got hammered for his sin, you can too. Open from 12 Good Friday and ALL long weekend,” the since-deleted post read, news.com.au reported.

The photo, which was posted right before Easter, sparked a negative response with many within the religious community.

Though the post was taken down, those offended by the image left poor reviews on the pub’s Facebook page — which are still there.

“any place that needs to mock someones faith to sell their business is a disgrace. Absolutely disgusting. Shame on you,” one reviewer wrote.

“Their recent post is highly offensive and has caused me to imagine their menu lacking taste and very bitter. Absolutely disgraceful!!” one wrote, leaving a “Do Not Recommend” tag on his post.

“Extremely unprofessional means of advertisement. Highly discriminatory and disrespectful. As a business, there should be a high level of respect towards their customers - no matter their beliefs and values and therefore, should keep personal beliefs separate from business. Will definitely be boycotting this entire place for their poor representation and reputation as well as their disgusting food and service,” one wrote, calling for a boycott on the pub.

“Absolutely disgusting!! Do not give this place the light of day their food is just as disgusting as their social media posts,” another commented on Facebook.

Yahoo Australia reported religious Facebook page Orthodox Christianity fueled the negative comments by asking their followers to “Please give this place a bad rating, they are Mocking our Lord Jesus Christ.”

DEMOCRATS/ABORTIONISTS SHOULD TAKE HEED OF THE FACT THAT BABIES ARE GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS.

There will be haters. This ad reaction was not the intent of its sarcastic creator who was trying, in very sacrilegious bad taste, to drum up business. So we should "crucify" the restaurant like the Jewish chief priests did Christ?

I can see a mistake when it appears. Make them AWARE of their affront as was COMPLETE with the social media outrage (they know not what they do) but don't go so far as to threaten or kill the messenger.

Have we learned nothing from the death of our Savior? Tolerance and forgiveness in a world filled with hate is a thoughtful perspective. They didn't threaten, abuse (well maybe in so many words), or poison anyone...I suspect the Pub will survive, drinkers are a resilient and forgiving lot, but the insult will be long felt by the purchasing public no thanks in part due to the caustic negative social media reaction AND PILING ON in which everyone wants to outdo all previous posters. It is "fun" until some gets hurt...
