The ad is doing exactly what they intended it to do and people fall for it over and over again. What they intended to do was use imagery and verbiage that they know will cause a controversy and that people will start sharing it around on Facebook and the internet thereby spreading the ad around for FREE. As for as the owners of that establishment they could probably care less about what a handful of people in MPLS/St. Paul think as they probably would have not even considered going to such a place anyway. They also couldn't give a rats butt about people that don't live in that region as those people wouldn't become customers. In sum a lot of people in that region have now seen the ad due to social media and the majority of them that don't care about the controversy might consider going there instead of their usual place.

Do I think the use of such imagery and verbiage is wrong - YES.
