A Michigan sports bar is facing backlash after a photo of a dress code sign that says "no ghetto gear" was shared online.

CJ's Upper Deck Bar & Grille in Waterford, Michigan, posted a sign with its dress code, which includes rules such as: "Pants and shorts must be at waist level. (Pulled up at all times - No ghetto gear.)"

"Wife beaters" were also off limits, as were baseball caps turned sideways. Patrons were also banned from wearing "large logos." The dress code specifically called out "South Pole, Fubu, ghetto gear, etc."

A representative for CJ's Upper Deck told TODAY Style in a statement that the sign has been removed.

"Right now, we are in very touchy times. Our intention of this message is to reach out to our community to say thank you for your support. At CJs we strive to make the customer experience a fun and safe place for everyone whether you are visiting us for a meal or a few cocktails. A picture of our dated dress code has surfaced online, and we would like to inform everyone that it has been removed and updated. We apologize to anyone that felt offended," the statement said.
