This Popular Coffee Shop Was Told To Remove Its “Offensive” Name Sign & They Are Not Pleased

Support and derision flooded the Twitter feed of Fuckoffee, a coffee shop in Bermondsey, south London, when its managers tweeted a letter from lawyers telling them to take down the sign bearing their “offensive” name.

The sign has been up for more than a year, a rebranding from the more innocuous “Bermondsey Street Coffee.”

The letter is from the lawyers of the owners of the building. It says: “We are instructed that you have either erected or allowed your sub-tenant to erect an offensive sign on the exterior of the building […] without the permission or authority of our client and this constitutes a trespass.”

It gives the shop a deadline of 4 p.m. on Oct. 27 to confirm they’ve removed the sign, or their clients will take steps to remove the sign themselves.

Supporters of the shop decried the lack of humor of the lawyers, and the shop retweeted the messages, along with other things that are offensive:
