Coleman's Irish Pub in Syracuse celebrates St Patrick's Day with funny t-shirts every year. But some aren't laughing about this year's design.

The t-shirts read 'Mom, Dad...I'm Gaelic' on the front and 'Everyone comes out for St Patrick's Day' on the back.

"It has been brought to our attention that the t-shirt Coleman’s produced for St. Patrick’s Day has offended some members of the LGBT community. It was not our intention to offend anyone,” Dennis Coleman wrote on Facebook. “20 years ago, we would never have considered producing a shirt like this because it was something you didn’t talk about. Things are more open now. It was a tongue-in-cheek commentary on society. But we understand now how some gay people might take offense and for that we apologize. That’s the problem with humor, what some people can laugh about, other people find offensive.”

People need to lighten up. Changing things because a few people are offended is getting old. What happened to the days of, if you didn't like something you didn't participate. Now everything is being taken away because someone complains and that offends me.

Although Coleman apologizes for offending anyone, they won't stop selling the shirts that you can purchase at and after all the controversy I need one.
