Angry protests erupt at ‘racist’ Brooklyn bar that serves 40 ounces of rose wine in paper bags and brags about its ‘genuine’ bullet holes in the wall

Protest erupted at a Brooklyn bar on Saturday amid anger at the owner’s decision to make a feature of a ‘bullet damaged’ wall on the property, sell wine in 40 ounce bottles and suggest she might wrap beverages in paper bags.

Dozens met up outside Summerhill, a ‘boozy sandwich shop’ in Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York to speak out against the ‘bar’s commodification of stereotypes that only serve to hurt the community.’

The area has been rapidly gentrifying in recent years and the owner – Canadian former corporate lawyer Becca Brennan – has been accused of racism for trading on the neighborhood’s African American roots.
