7. You're right -- they've been getting complaints about it for many years.

The article makes it sound like this is the first time the current owner became aware of the controversy, but he was quoted in a different article (from 2017) acknowledging the complaints in a 2014 interview:

"We do get the occasional complaint. They want us to know the controversy of the name. And yet for every complaint, there are about 1,000 people who say, ‘Wow, I can't believe it’s still here’ — or ‘Open another one in our town.’"


So yeah...zero chance he didn't know about it before.
