<div class="quote-block">Although Pink Taco's Facebook page was offline Friday, the Century City restaurant still had a presence on the social media website.<br><br>
The Facebook group "Boycott Pink Taco Century City" earned its 1,000th member around 10 a.m. Friday.<br><br>
The controversy centers on a donkey that was painted pink as part of a Cinco de Mayo promotion. According to the Facebook group's description, "These people spray painted a donkey and tied him to a post in 90-degree heat. This is not OK. Please boycott this restaurant." The restaurant had at least one similar promotion, seen in this YouTube video posted July 31, 2007.</div>

Gosh - they <i>really</i> painted that poor donkey. I hope they lose a lot of business of this stupid "promotion". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"> I "liked" the group advocating boycott on FB.

I'm sure most of the FB people complaining about animal cruelty are meat eaters.</div>
</div>
<br>
One of the reasons I stopped eating meat is because I felt like I was being a hypocrite saying how much I love animals, yet eating them.<br><br>
I feel bad for the donkey <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Seriously, how did they think that name was a good idea? The last thing a restaurant needs is for people to be imagining pubes in their food <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Not the first time Pink Taco has been in the news. The guy who owns it is an asshat.
