This bar employee decided to make a “clever” joke about domestic violence. Though this comment is inappropriate at any time, during Domestic Violence Awareness month it seems especially insensitive. Although it might seem like just another immature comment, I think it says a lot about how our society tends to make light of this serious issue. With every joke like this it becomes more acceptable to think of domestic violence as an acceptable (even humorous) part of life, rather than the disturbing act it actually is.

What do you guys think?
