NY Taco Chain Bans Putin Until He Stops 'Picking on People'

Of all the consequences stemming from Russia's invasion of Ukraine, this one holds a special kind of quaint significance.

The western New York Mexican restaurant chain 'Mighty Taco' posted on its Facebook page this week that it was banning Russia's leader Vladimir Putin from stepping foot in any of their 23 locations.

Proclaiming that "no one likes a bully," the chain gave the Putin an ultimatum: "Stop picking on people and maybe you'll be welcomed back to Mighty Taco."

It's the most epic battle between an American underdog and a big, bad Russian since "Rocky IV."
