Find out how people reacted to the news.

A New York City bar has had enough of the word "literally" and has decided to ban its customers from using the word.

Continental, bar in the city's East Village has posted a sign on its door to warn people before they come in that they can say anything but this one word.

"Sorry but if you say the word ‘literally’ inside continental you have five minutes to finish your drink and then you must leave," reads the sign posted on the window.

It further declares: "If you actually start a sentence with ‘I literally’ you must leave immediately!!!"

The Independent reported, the bar feels "literally" is the most “overused, annoying word in the English language and we will not tolerate it. Stop Kardashianism now!”

What was not clear was the whether or not the correct use of the word is acceptable to say in the bar.

People who saw the tweet had strong reactions to the idea of a bar making such a bizarre rule.

Here's some of what they had to say:
