Following a tragic mass shooting, Kansas City insiders reveal that The 9INE Ultra Lounge has an "interesting" social media presence and we've found an equally captivating bit of discourse on one of their pages following the recent, horrific spate of gunfire.
One new visitor to their FB presence notes: "Is a black bar go figure"
The fiery response: "B*tch stfu with all the mass shooting yo people do b*tch must be ready to lose her job."
