Brewery apologizes over Gandhi beer can

An American brewery has apologised for putting a picture of Indian independence hero Mahatma Gandhi on its beer cans, reports say.

New England Brewing Company’s move came after a petition was filed in an Indian court saying that the move had “insulted” the leader.


 

Gandhi was kinda weird….

“That’s not even the shadiest part. Gandhi took his 18-year-old grandniece on a trip with him to Bengal and commanded her to share the nudity bunk with him for their entire stay, a move he rationalized by telling her that they might be killed at any moment by angry Muslims. That’s right — Gandhi told his barely legal niece to take off all of her clothes and climb into bed with her equally naked great uncle because the two of them might suddenly be murdered.”

    “Gandhi told his barely legal niece to take off all of her clothes and climb into bed with her equally naked great uncle because the two of them might suddenly be murdered.”

    If I had it to do all over again, I would so totally use that line!
    At least once.

      From faraway Vienna, Sigmund Freud dismissed Gandhi’s rationalizations and opined that the Great Soul enjoyed it.

    “Company’s move came after a petition was filed in an Indian court ”

    Why in hell should an AMERICAN company feel obligated by the blustering dictates of an INDIAN court?

    The response should have been STFU. You have no jurisdiction here.
