SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Dinosaur BBQ, a popular barbecue restaurant known in Central New York, is under fire for a now-deleted social media post tied to Robert Kraft.

On Sunday, the restaurant posted on Twitter and Facebook promoting a sandwich they nicknamed a "Robert Kraft," which it then went on to allegedly insinuate a sex act.

Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, is facing two counts of soliciting another to commit prostitution.

Shortly after the McMahon Ryan Center in Syracuse spoke out against the controversial post - Dinosaur BBQ deleted it.

The Facebook post added that a percentage of the proceeds would be donated to the McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy Center in Syracuse.

McMahon Ryan then issued a statement stating that they appreciate the support from Dinosaur BBQ, but cannot accept donations.

While some may find it funny, advocates for abuse victims, say human trafficking should not be taken lightly - and never joked about.
