PARK CITY, UT (KUTV/CBS) - A bar is under fire for a sign posted in the window that critics say promoted rape or, at least, that was insensitive to the issue.

Liz Pyper Newman, who lives in California and was visiting Utah, snapped a picture of the sign. It said, "Rendezvous Whiskey...I like my women like I like my whiskey...ready to pass out!"

That sign upset Newman and a lot of other people, including Alana Kindness, director of the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

"That wasn't appropriate," said Kindness. "Alcohol is associated with sexual assault over and over and over and over again. It's the most common drug involved in date rape situations."

The Cabin had a response for Newman on Facebook, writing, "Liz is obviously a miserable, lonely woman with no sense of humor, personality or a life. She is angry and not welcome in The Cabin. Everyone should enjoy a wonderful High West Whiskey to celebrate Liz's misery."

That only added fuel to the fire and to the dozens of angry reviews against the business that piled up online.

In a statement, The Cabin marketing director Chris Cinka said he was "more than sorry for the sign" and that it was not meant to be a "rape joke."

Though initially writing in the statement the employee responsible for the sign was fired, Cinka later admitted that did not happen.

Cinka said he's reached out to the Coalition Against Sexual Assault and hopes to host some benefit concerts for the organization.

"What I'm thrilled with is that there was a quick response and that the door has been opened," said Kindness.
