HBC/Itaewon Information Board/via Facebook It is not known who posted the two signs at JR Pub in Seoul.
Signs posted outside of a South Korea pub over the weekend banned all Africans from patronizing the establishment out of fears from Ebola.
“We apologize but due to Ebola virus we are not accepting Africans at the moment,” read the signs on the window at JR Pub in Seoul.
That’s 1.1 billion people who would be banned from the pub — even though there are no reported cases of the deadly disease in South Korea.
It is not known who posted the signs, but the outrage was pouring in on social media after a photo of the offending messages was displayed on Facebook.
“I told them I was South African and after some deliberation they told me I could go in (I didn’t),” someone wrote on Facebook on Saturday. “Apparently white Africans are okay. Total bollocks.”
“I wouldn’t want to drink with people who may carry Ebola, either,” wrote another user. “But at least I have the common sense to know I am not in West Africa. Just avoid the pub. If they’re this stupid, who knows what else goes on behind closed doors.”
Some users reported on Facebook that the signs had been removed.
