A TX restaurant slurred and banned a gay couple, and they're sticking to it. Their Yelp page is now fabulous.
Um, they sure look like dudes to me.
Another day, another bigoted restaurant proudly standing up for a-holes everywhere. Colin Dewberry and his partner Kelly Williams decided to dine out at Big Earl's Restaurant in Pittsburg, TX, and apparently enjoyed their meal before having it horribly soured on their way out the door. As they were leaving, their waitress approached them and reportedly said, "Here at Big Earl's, we like men to act like men and ladies to act like ladies, so we want you to never return," adding "we don't serve fags here."
If there's any bright side to this depressing (and depressingly familiar) tale, it's that Big Earl's Yelp page has now become a repository for queertastic reviews (much like what happened to Gary's Chicaros in Oklahoma).
The couple, who have lived in East Texas their whole lives, said they had never had that word flung at them in their entire time there. "We've never had that kind of hate displayed to us before," said Dewberry, "It was just so nonchalantly, almost like she was reading a piece of paper."
