Buttershot Liquor has been around for decades and the brand’s famous brand name has been associated with the liquid from which it is derived, which is made from the ashes of the decomposing remains of a human head.
The liquid itself is known for its strong scent and it’s a popular option among many in the world’s coffee and tea communities.
Buttershots has recently come under fire over its use of the word “buttershots” and its use in reference to alcohol, and some have called for the company to stop using the word altogether.
“The Buttershop Liquor logo has become synonymous with the term ‘buttershot,'” The New York Times wrote in an article published in January.
“The word ‘butter,’ for instance, can mean many things, including a sweetened drink or a flavoring.
But in a recent ad for the product, a man with a shaved head is shown saying, ‘I don’t want a ‘buttshits’ anymore.'”
The New York Post also weighed in, writing that “The Buttshuts have been a beloved part of coffee culture since their inception in the late 1800s.”
“Buttershits” are a common descriptor for alcoholic beverages, and the company has often used them in advertisements and in promotional materials to describe their contents.
But it seems that the company is going too far with its use, and they may be going too low.
According to The Washington Post, the company’s ad uses “buttshots” to describe the liquor’s taste.
“This is the perfect ad for Buttershops,” the narrator says, before the camera pans across the bar to the floor where a human skull sits in a glass.
“It’s been used to describe liquor from centuries ago.”
“I think it’s disgusting,” a man who’s sitting at the bar adds, pointing to the skull.
“I’m not saying buttshirts,” the barman replies.
The word “Buttershots,” which appears in an advertisement for the Buttershire brand of beer, has come under scrutiny recently.
In October, the New York State Department of Labor filed a complaint against the company for using the term “butter” in a tweet that included the hashtag #BUTTSHITS, which translates to “buttery,” a phrase that can be used to mean “to be butterswarm.”
In an Instagram post, the department wrote, “As a small industry we are constantly working to protect our workers from discrimination.
The use of Butters Hots is not only in direct violation of our human rights, but also the law.
The Department of Labour will take action if the misuse of Buttshots is not limited to this particular case.”
