A karaoke bar in Brooklyn was shut down over the weekend after violating … well, pretty much every law on the books.

The New York Sheriff’s office has confirmed that The Legend KTV, located in Borough Park, was ignoring the city's coronavirus safety guidelines and illegally hosting 281 people, including one minor, on Sunday. The bar was also serving liquor without a valid liquor license, which had been revoked in 2019.
