Scots are up in arms after U.S. President Donald Trump has banned the Irn-Bru soft drink at the Turnberry golf resort, located in Ayrshire, Scotland. Sky News reports that the ban relates to the orange colouring of the drink which is believed could stain the resort’s carpets.

Irn-Bru soft drink banned from luxurious golf resort

The five-star golf resort has recently received an upgrade at a cost of £200 million. The new ban on Irn-Bru was uncovered when guests ordered the soft drink at an event and were told there was none to be had. Ralph Porciani, the general manager at Turnberry, told the Ayrshire Post that they cannot have the soft drink staining the carpet, saying just replacing the bathroom carpet alone would cost some £500,000.

According to Porciani some of the villas in the golf resort bear Irn-Bru stains, which means they cannot let those villas.

There was an immediate backlash on social media when the ban came to light, with one Twitter user announcing that the U.S. President had declared war on Scotland by introducing the controversial ban on the country’s favourite soft drink. David Silkenat, a historian, tweeted that he was going to enjoy an Irn-Bru that night in protest against the U.S.

President’s ban of the drink at his golf resort. Another Twitter user noted that he had never seen Scotland come together like they have over the ban.

Locals expect protests to be held during his planned visit to Scotland in July this year if Trump doesn’t include Irn-Bru. Others noted that red wine would also need to be banned if stains are what Trump is worried about.

One made reference to Trump's orange colouring.

As noted by Sky News, the soft drink recently became a little healthier after they reduced the sugar content to make the drink exempt from the new sugar tax.

Scots were not affected by the reduced sugar and reportedly, sales of Irn-Bru have risen by eight percent this year.

Scots against Donald Trump’s visit

As reported by the Metro, Trump plans on visiting the Queen at Balmoral when he visits the U.K. this summer. Besides the Irn-Bru issue, many politicians are against the visit by the U.S. President, including Richard Leonard, leader of the Scottish Labour party. He was heard to say that a person who holds racist, misogynist, and anti-trade union views, along with Donald Trump's approach to foreign policy and his rejection of the Paris Accord, should not receive a red carpet welcome in Scotland.
