Sneakers Bistro and Cafe, in Winooski, Vermont set up a fake traffic sign that read "Yield for Sneakers Bacon."  Owner Marc Dysinger says it was intended to be fun. But, Many of the 7,000 residents of the city are Muslim.

An online community forum had several complaints from vegans and Muslims.  They don't eat pork.  The restaurant removed the sign.

Sneakers' sells a breakfast sandwich made with homemade turkey bacon.

Now, people are criticizing the restaurant for removing the sign.  They say the restaurant shouldn't have caved under pressure.
