Mary & # 39; s, a popular burger bar in Newtown, Sydney, has been criticized for sharing an image of Jesus holding a cigarette and a can of beer on Facebook.
& # 39; Jesus was beaten for his sins, you too. Open from 12 Good Friday and ALL weekend long, & mail said.
Mary & # 39; s in Newtown have been criticized for having a & # 39; disrespectful & # 39; put an image of Jesus on Facebook
The insensitive post made light of the death of Christ, who died after being hammered on a cross with nails.
Facebook users hit the burger restaurant for the disrespectful post.
& # 39; Delete this message, it is wrong at all levels, & # 39; said a person.
& # 39; How dare you post something so disrespectful and offensive as such. Gates of Hell are wide open, & someone else commented.
& # 39; Insulting both a large religious figure and a nationally recognized religious holiday is a low bow & # 39 ;, said a person.
Another group shared the message with the words: & # 39; Will organize a rosary at Marys in Newtown on Good Friday unless they abort. & # 39;
Mary & # 39; s has since deleted the message and has been contacted for comment.
Facebook users have continued to flood the site with negative reviews, reducing the restaurant's rating from 4.5 stars to 2.9 stars.
Newtown is a trendy suburb four kilometers from Sydney & # 39; s CBD. Mary & # 39; s was previously seen at Sydney's best burger joint, after opening in 2013.
