  Original Published: 5/2/2013  "Tasteless" and "offensive" are just some of the ways a Kentucky business's recent Facebook posts are being described.    The posts appear to some to make light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon.   Adam Winer visited the restaurant that's feeling the heat and has more on the controversy.   "We're outside the Liberty Grill in Stanton, Kentucky, serving up some pulled pork sandwiches and a controversial sense of humor," says reporter Adam Winer.   Quincy Collier and his fiance opened Liberty Grill just a few months ago in an effort to combine their love for food and freedom.   "Just wanted to cook good food for people and bring back the American spirit," says Collier.   But Collier's spirited attempt to bring attention to his business, through Facebook, apparently elicited some pretty negative responses.   One recent post showed a crockpot, and read, "It's a Bomb!" "No, no, just pulled pork at the Liberty Grill."   Another post showed the same image, reading, "Tick Tock, Tick Tock."   Underneath, one commenter called the post "tasteless and inconsiderate," adding, "Boston strong is where it's at."   "Complete shock, after I got to thinking about it, people are very sensitive about that issue right now," the man commented.   We caught up with Collier cooking up some of that pulled pork.   The chef insists he wasn't making a reference to the recent Boston bombings.   "Not related to the Boston bombings. O was not thinking about that when I wrote that. It was crock pot with pork in it," he said.   But reaction in Stanton was mixed.   "I mean, it's a bomb. I mean, you know, a lot of people use that expression," one person said.   Collier says he's learned his lesson, says he's gonna delete some of those offending Facebook posts and next time, play it a little bit safer.
