A customer went into a bar named ‘323’ on Main Street in Westport Connecticut and was in disbelief after going through the drink menu. Per Newstimes, the customer saw a drink called “The Tuskegee Experiment” which is a government study done at HBCU Tuskegee University between 1932 and 1972 by the U.S. Public Health Service on African Americans. It left hundreds of black men with untreated syphilis as the study was to watch the diseases progression.
The customer posted the drink name on Facebook tagging the restaurant in the photo and wrote, “Umm. This is ridiculously horrible.”
The manager, Emily Clayton, told Westport News that she never heard of the cocktail and when asked for the menu, the cocktail menu happened to be missing. Then the menu was updated and she claims, “I had heard someone come in and say something about it but I was confused because we’ve never had a cocktail by that name.” Too bad her story holds no weight since the photo was posted before her argument.
