One Store in Brussels has to cancel Bad Taste Promotion Intended to Lighten the Coronavirus Fears

AN enthusiastic joker who runs a franchise for Delhaize supermarket in Brussels has got into trouble for running a promotion saying “Vaccine of the moment: buy two Coronas, get one free Mort Subite”. The “mort subite” beer name means “sudden death”.

Whilst customers reportedly were amused, head office was not and the store was instructed to remove the promotion, not however before an amused customer circulated a picture on Twitter.
