Recently a bar has gone viral on social media after introducing a drink named after the embattled actor, Johnny Depp.
According to LADbible, the unknown tavern has stirred a debate on the internet as netizens read that if you’re in the inn and having some sort of trouble, you can unnoticeably let the staff members know by ordering the specific drink named after the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
“Feeling unsafe or scared, just come to the bar and order a Johnny Depp shot,” the sign read.
According to the sign, there are three versions of the shot, and anybody going through some issue can pick one and indicate their issue to the staff.
Neat: It says if you order this shot, the bar staff will escort you safely out of the building.
On the rocks: If someone orders this version of the Johnny Depp shot, the bar staff will call a taxi for them.
With lime: If someone goes for the ‘with lime’ shot, the staff will take a hint and call the police.
The sign further said, “We will handle things discreetly and without fuss.”
The shot is quite similar to the Angel Shot that was introduced to help women who find themselves in some uncomfortable situations.
A TikTok influencer Benji Spears posted a video on his official account and explained why women should know about the Angel shot.
“Angel shots are becoming more common and more known throughout all bars and it’s being brought to bartenders’ attention.”
“OK so an angel shot is key, it can save you or your best friend’s life and it’s something we should all know about.” he said.
The Angel Shot is highly applauded by most people, especially women, as they can discreetly let people know that she is in some trouble.
Now, the Johnny Depp shot is also getting appreciated as it would provide men with ways to express that they might need help.
A Twitter user posted a photo of the sign initially shared on Reddit.
“A sign in the men’s bathroom of a pub. He really is bringing awareness to male victims of abuse.” The caption read.
