"For 38 years we have prided ourselves on fostering an inclusive and accepting environment where anyone is free and safe to be themselves. The fact that we have done anything to in anyway tarnish that is heartbreaking to us. We are sorry, from the bottom of our hearts. The post of conversation, which has since been removed from our account, was posted not at all from any place of hatred or malice, but a deaf attempt at humor. We now see your thoughts and understand how our thoughtlessness has adversely effected our, until now, stellar relationship with the lgbtqia community of Orlando. We apologize and insure you this will never happen again. We also promise to never change, and will continue to be an accepting, open and safe place for Orlando to come together and share a beer."
