From Queen Macoomeh, the petition creator: Angostura Limited contacted us to say their ad will be removed. They also posted that message on their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/AngosturaLimited

The ad is menacing and suggests and encourages date rape!

      As a parent to both a male and female children I find the advertisement very offensive, in very poor taste and as a parent it seems it is an attempt to undermine the excellent most West Indian parents do to raise our boys and girls.

      I shudder to think what your next ad campaign might condone..."its OK if they're underaged just go ahead" I'm just asking because if we don't put a stop to it now who knows? Please do us and our community a huge favour and remove your distgusting opportunity taste in advertising.

      Yours truly,

      Peter A. Frederick.

      This ad is offensive, exploitive and sexist.

      The advertisement is an encouragement to young men to use alcohol to take advantage of their date. On behalf of all women I say: "That is a disgusting advertising ploy."

      Clearly appealing to young men that the way to change a girl's mind about them is to get her drunk. Misogynistic. Extremely offensive!

      Alcohol destroys your brain, in Trinidad a lot of car accidents are alcohol related. This ad is suggesting that women want to be seduced with alcohol. Trinidad's population has a serious drugs problem, promoting alcohol doesn't make it better.
