A bar owner in Portland, Oregon, has received death threats over a note that first appeared at the bottom of his establishment’s receipts about five months ago.
A giveaway of sorts, the receipt at Paydirt, the bar, offered a reward to anyone who ensured Donald Trump aide and noted antisemite and racist Steve Bannon suffered the same fate suffered by fellow reputed hate-monger Richard Spencer on Inauguration Day—it reads: “Punch Steve Bannon. Get Free Whiskey For Life.”
Once right wing media finally caught on, Paydirt owner Ezra Caraeff began receiving death threats, and a new Yelp “review” suggested someone sexually assault Elizabeth Warren, according to Willamette Week.
“This guy says he’s going to slap the shit out of me,” a bartender said after taking a call in front of a reporter on Sunday. Caraeff has locked his Twitter account down, disabled the bar’s Facebook page, and changed the receipts.
He didn’t change them much, redacting the name of the White House’s chief strategist and removed member of the National Security Council.
“Say something nice at my funeral,” Caraeff said.
