Outrage grows over ‘racist’ cowboys and Indians party held at Toronto bar
Outraged Torontonians banded together on Saturday night to descend on a “racist party in full swing” at a Parkdale bar: A “cowboys and Indians” gathering complete with war paint and faux headdresses.
The party of 20 people, dressed in cowboy hats, headdresses and plastic tomahawks, gathered at Parkdale’s The Rhino Restaurant and Bar on Saturday night, reportedly to commemorate a double birthday.
Another patron spotted the party and sent out an alert on Twitter: “There are people actually dressed as cowboys and Indians. Face paint and feathers.”
As the message gained ground on the Twitterverse, users bombarded the Rhino’s Twitter feed with accusations of racism and threats of boycott.
