Bar that banned "literally" now facing backlash

posted by Gary Cee -

Trigger Smith is the bar owner of the Continental, the New York City East Village bar that recently announced that they would ban use of the word "literally" inside the bar.  Anyone caught using the word would be asked to leave.     I thought it was a funny story, and a great way for the bar to get some press.

Not everyone feels that way.  Mr. Smith is feeling some online heat, including accusations of sexism. 

Grubstreet has the latest.  

The Continental is feeling a bit of backlash
