Restaurant Owner Calls Gay Customers “Disgusting”
According to this article, a restaurant owner allegedly called two gay women “disgusting.” They were customers in his restaurant at the time.
One of the women posted her experience on social media, and the brother of one of the women who was with them made a statement, too.
The wife of the restaurant owner is now apologizing and making excuses for her husband because he’s old. But people on Yelp are not having any of that.
“Just discovered on the early morning news the owner is a homophobic and transgender bigot,” one reviewer writes. “You think because he’s 77 that’s an excuse? I’m 78 and had enough upbringing to respect others as I wish to be. Degrading people for who they are is disgusting.”
