A bar in Auckland has advertised a meal deal on Facebook and accompanied it with a photo of an Orthodox Jew. The caption on the post reads: “now that’s a bargain.”
The post has since been removed.
The Facebook post was shared on De Post Belgian Beer Café’s page on Saturday morning advertising a platter and drinks for $45 deal.
New Zealand Jewish Council president Stephen Goodman says: “The New Zealand Jewish Council is opposed to any racial, ethnic or religious stereotyping.
We are pleased with the prompt action taken by the bar apologising and removing the item.”
