Starting from February 27, some people in the United States called on citizens to boycott vodka, an important Russian export product, under the banner of “protesting Russia’s use of force against Ukraine”. One of the American tavern owners also released a video of “dump vodka”. It has been retweeted by Fox News and other media in the United States.
But embarrassingly, some netizens found that the wine poured by this boss is not only not Russian, but this brand also has a lot of old grudges with Russia.The owner of the pub who poured the wine in public, named Bill McCormick, said that he decided to pour out all the “Russian vodka” in his pub in front of the video camera because he was “unhappy with Russia’s attack on Ukraine”. Again and again, he didn’t stop until the bottles of vodka on the table had all fallen by the side of the road.
The news was discovered by Fox News and posted on the media’s Twitter, and then Fox News waited for several news about “rejected vodka boycotting Russia”, and a senior Republican official in Ohio also called for boycotting Imported Russian vodka.
