Local activist and rape survivor Taylor Malone, left, stands with others Saturday night during a protest outside the newly opened Spokane Downtown Daiquiri Factory on Wall Street. The bar’s menu includes a drink called “Date Grape Koolaid,” which has sparked controversy and national media attention accusing the venue of making light of a serious crime. In response to the backlash, the bar has defended the name and hidden negative comments and reviews on its Facebook page. In an audio statement designed as a faux news report that the bar posted Monday, a voice-over concludes there is “no reason to be outraged” and “everyone simply needs a little daiquiri therapy.”
