Albino Rhino is Gonezo
Albino Rhino no more!
Earls Restaurants has removed the word Albino from their menus. Albino Rhino is their popular in-house brand of beer. This comes after a spirited court case involving the BC Human Rights Tribunal where the complainants have albinism.
They alleged that the name is humiliating and demeaning, especially when customers order an albino.
Earls tried unsuccessfully to have the human-rights case dismissed, arguing albino is a neutral term and was chosen because it's a whimsical rhyme.
The restaurant has until the 24th of April to remove it from all of their menus.
